Recognition Comes In All Forms…Some More Meaningful Than Others

I was passing through production on my way up to my office this afternoon to blog about another beautiful custom award we created.  My eyes aren’t as good as they used to be so I was squinting to see one of our most loyal employees clearly enough to figure out if she was wearing a swim cap to work today.  As I got closer I realized Joan had shaved off all of her hair.  She explained to me that her sister was going through chemo and promised her as a show of support she would ...
