As we approach the holidays, we begin to reflect on how thankful we are and how much we appreciate those around us. Here at Copley, this time of year brings us many opportunities to show our staff how grateful we are for them. Not that their efforts ever go unnoticed, but the holiday season gives us the chance to slow down and let them know how valued they are.
Our Employee Appreciation Awards took place on November 9th; we had the opportunity to take a break from our hectic routines to enjoy each other’s company over lunch while we recognized our employees. We kicked off the awards acknowledging those with perfect attendance. We are always amazed by the number of staff members we have here with perfect attendance, it really speaks to their dedication!
Next, we honor those who have been here for two, five, ten and twenty years. Each year we see more and more repeat faces filling our annual awards, and it gives us a great deal of pride to know that we are doing something correctly to keep our team around. It brings us joy to hear comments throughout the community about our dedicated team of professionals because if it weren’t for them, it would be impossible for us to operate as we do.
Another annual event we look forward to is the Thanksgiving pie delivery that fills our conference room with fresh apple pies from Whitey’s bakery. Each staff member is able to take one home to enjoy with their loved ones on Thanksgiving.
As we head into December we begin to organize our Giving Tree. Each staff member gets to pick an envelope off of the tree and receive a mystery gift card. This is such a great way to end the year and show our appreciation.
On December 14th we will be hosting our annual Holiday Reception from 5:30PM – 8:00PM for our residents, guests, staff and families. Wishing a warm holiday season filled with rest and relaxation to you and your loved ones!
