Staff Appreciation: A Celebration of Dedication and Team Spirit
Each year, Lifeworks dedicates two weeks to celebrate, honor, and express gratitude to its devoted staff — a remarkable team of caregivers and supporting professionals who tirelessly advocate, empower, and create opportunities for the individuals we serve.
Throughout these two weeks, the Lifeworks team enjoyed a delightful array of treats, adorned with notes of appreciation. Office locations were ornamented with signs of appreciation, and reception desks beckoned individuals to pick from bowls filled with uplifting notes to brighten their day.
Staff were treated to lunch on three occasions — one day at each of the three locations. Staff had the option to savor lunch at any site, or for the more ambitious, visit all three! The lunchtime festivities featured popular food trucks, with Tailgate Food Truck offering an enticing array of tailgate specials, including cheese steak subs, sausage peppers & onions, hot dogs, cheeseburgers, and French fries. To sweeten the deal, the Ellie’s Treats ice cream truck was on hand, allowing staff to indulge in a variety of ice cream treats, popcorn, and cotton candy.
Daily emails from Steve Cantine, Vice President of Human Resources, were something to look forward to. In addition to spreading good cheer and expressing immense gratitude to all staff, he orchestrated daily drawings for gift cards. Each day, two fortunate winners received $50 gift cards to either Walmart or Target.
As the two weeks of celebrating the Lifeworks team came to a close and in anticipation of our upcoming 70th Anniversary year, a Lifeworks Trivia Contest was held. Questions revolved around trivia about Lifeworks people, places, and history spanning the past 70 years. The winners not only demonstrated their knowledge but also showcased the strong sense of community within Lifeworks. For those eager to delve into our rich history, the trivia questions and answers can be found [here].
This celebration is a testament to Lifeworks’ unwavering commitment to fostering a culture of appreciation, recognizing the dedication of its remarkable staff, and creating a positive and uplifting work environment for all. Cheers to the Lifeworks heroes who make a difference every day!
