SMG Announces 'Gift of Kindness' Contest to Recognize Employees
2017 is the 40th Anniversary year for SMG. As part of its planned anniversary festivities, the company has launched its Gift of Kindness Contest.
Paying homage to this year’s greatest gift, that of kindness, SMG developed its own internal “Gift of Kindness” contest. Enthusiastically approved by SMG’s President, Wes Westley and the members of his management team in January, the contest was officially launched in March.
The Gift of Kindness contest is meant to recognize employees demonstrating kindness in their work life or their personal life. Employee submissions will be accepted throughout the year, with a winner announced each quarter and an overall winner announced in December 2017. Each winner will receive cash prizes and special limited edition Waterford “2017 The Gift of Kindness” signature ornaments.
