Employee Recognition Programs
FISH! Rewards Program – To support KYC employees to implement the Fish! Philosophy in their daily work lives, we offer a peer nominated rewards program. Employees may recognize each other for exemplifying the philosophy by sending a thank you card and nomination form that can then be redeemed for a $10 gift certificate. The program is a fun way to empower staff to recognize the great work of their peers and is a very popular way to Make Their Day. We offer gift certificates to establishments such as Amazon, Starbucks, Subway, Panera, and Target.
#FISH!GOALS — This is a quarterly award given to an employee who exemplifies the positive approach to work that the FISH! Philosophy promotes. We begin collecting nominations for #Play and will cycle through each of the 4 tenants over the course of the year. Employees that win the award are granted an additional full day of PTO (7.5 hours).
Tenure Awards – Staff are recognized for years of service in five-year increments starting with a $125 monetary bonus at five years for a full-time employee (pro-rated for part-time) and increasing to the highest level of $1445 for thirty-five years. We recently had our first employee reach the 35 year level (the previous highest level was 30 years). Those recognized will have completed years of service in five year increments up to the thirty-fifth year of tenure.
Values Awards – The KYC Values Award is a $200 monetary bonus given to recognize behaviors that exemplify the KYC values. It rewards examples of achievement and effort and recognizes individuals for leadership, initiative or creativity that benefits clients of KYC.
