Staff Recognition Award Winners
Congratulations to the 2017 JCC Chicago Staff Recognition Award Winners
We love when customers and program participants tell us their “J story.” We hear reflections of summer and swim lessons, exercise classes, travel experiences and special family events. Behind every single one of those indescribable J moments is a dedicated, passionate team of JCC staff making it all possible and amazing.
Today we gathered to celebrate the talented team we are so privileged to work alongside and to recognize four outstanding employees who exemplify our four core values: self-leadership, customer service, teamwork & collaboration and creativity & innovation.
The magic of these awards is that all the nominations came from other staff members, reaching across departments and disciplines to shine a positive light and much-deserved recognition on the great work they do. The 2017 JCC Employee Recognition Award winners are:
