Employee of Distinction

Print Friendly

The Employee of Distinction Luncheon is a program to help area businesses showcase their top notch employees who make a significant difference by going above and beyond; and as a means to let those employees know how much they are valued by their employers.

This year’s event was held on Sept. 6, 2017, to align with Labor Day because that too is a time to pay tribute to the contributions of all of America’s workforce. 

For more information on the event, please contact Jennifer Bako at 330-786-2519 or jbako@goodwillakron.org.
