  • Star employee about four times.:)
  • You asked a GREAT Q! I don't have many, but the ones i earned, I cherish. My very first job I earned "Employee of the Month" on two different occasions. At the Culinary Institute of America, I was awarded a "Certificate of Excellence for Perfect Attendance" for my freshman year. I was given a book. At the first position I had after graduation, I was recognized for my dependability and innovativeness. One of my mentors complimented me on the "Creative Approach to Tenant Screening and Selection". At one of the management positions I held for a small, 16-unit restaurant chain, I was part of the team which was awarded a "Certificate of Excellence for Maintaining Effective Food Cost Percentages". We were awarded with dinner "on the house" at one of Pennsylvania's leading seafood houses. There were 30 of us from different stores/units. Someone asked Jerry, one of the owners, what we were limited to. "Ladies and gentlemen, you can have whatever you want. You earned and you deserve it." That's all we had to hear! Dom Perignon champagne "flowed like water". The following week Jerry came into the store for our weekly meeting. No one asked, but he insisted on sharing the information: As a group, we ran up a bar and food check in excess of $3,000. About 4 months later, the stores started closing - one after another. At the hospital where I do volunteer work, in the hospital's monthly newsletter, I was recognized, by name, as one of the folks who helped to make patients' stay and rehabilitation more enjoyable.

  • I only have a few official awards. Employee of the Quarter and Technical Achievement awards from companies that no longer exist. Medals from the military that I didn't deserve, and other medals they should've given me. My greatest awards are the spoken and unspoken thanks of those I've helped with their lives or careers. And I have the same gratitude to those who have done that for me. Thanks. And get well soon love.
