Employee Recognition Programs

Inspired by our sponsorship of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, our Excellence Awards program, established in 2008, is designed to acknowledge the outstanding achievements, leadership and innovation of our employees.

We offer several recognition programs across the company including Excellence Awards, CEO Awards and Service Recognition.

  • Excellence Awards – Inspired by our sponsorship of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, our Excellence Awards program, established in 2008, is designed to acknowledge the outstanding achievements, leadership and innovation of our employees. In 2011, we introduced a new Mentor category to recognize those who coach, teach or guide their peers and colleagues. We continue to include award categories for Safety in the Workplace, Productivity and Innovation, Environment and Sustainability, and Unsung Hero.
  • CEO Awards – In addition to our Excellence Awards program, our Annual CEO Awards recognize individuals and teams for contributions that are extraordinary in nature and significantly support the success of the company.
  • Service Recognition – Service milestones achieved by employees are recognized in five-year intervals. In 2012, we will introduce a company-wide service recognition program.

We also recognize and celebrate the excellence of our employees’ families by offering a scholarship program to eligible dependents pursuing further education, as well as a fund for athletes who are training to develop their talents and abilities in the hopes of Olympic achievement.

This case study was originally published in our 2011 Sustainability Report.
