In celebration of our dedicated team members, Summit DD hosted our annual Employee Recognition Breakfast. We recognized the amazing efforts of nearly 70 employees with a combined service of more than 1,000 years! Summit DD also presented the second annual Core Value Awards. Over 40 team members were nominated for exemplifying our values of Trust, Respect, Collaboration, Innovation, Inclusion and Excellence. The final six winners were announced at the breakfast, which included Deb Bailey, Rhonda Mallard, Paul Jankura, Melissa Skiljan, Julie Foster, and Todd Weaver.
As a surprise to the winners, their peers and supervisors were interviewed in advance to speak to their work ethic and officially announce the winners! Watch each video announcement below.
Teams members with over 20 years of service at Summit DD were also interviewed and had a chance to speak about what their work means to them. Watch below.
And the event was kicked off by our keynote speaker, Rebecca Delaney. Rebecca is a passionate advocate for her son, Ethan. Whether it’s been in an IFSP meeting or at the Ohio Statehouse, Rebecca has proudly supported Ethan at every turn. Rebecca has also helped to launch the Summit DD Summer Youth Work Experience program at Myers Industries, where she is a Human Resources Manager. When asked what Summit DD means to her, Rebecca replied “…I see Summit DD as a bridge to answers. A bridge to possibilities. We wouldn’t have known where to turn if Summit DD didn’t help guide us!”
