Recognition Man - Journal Entry #1:
As my one year anniversary at Terryberry rapidly approaches, I am writing to inform you of my mission and highlight my experiences thus far along the way.
My name is Recognition Man. And much like the origins of other famed superheroes, my life’s genesis is shrouded in mystery and overly broad statements.
I am a tireless advocate for recognition in the workplace. My allegiance lies with Terryberry - a likeminded employee recognition business with offices across the United States, Canada and the UK.
Terryberry calls Grand Rapids their home, as they have for a whole century. Their goal is to recognize people in the workplace for remarkable contributions and awesome achievements. Needless to say, great minds think alike. As I, too, strive to create fulfilling, rewarding environments for people in the workforce.
When I’m not actively fighting on behalf of unrecognized employees, I can be found dolling out high fives and fist bumps at the Terryberry home base. Much of my time here is spent devising new plans to further appreciate employees around the world. And of course, to write about my experiences throughout the process.
Some memories I reflect on fondly over my past year at Terryberry include speaking at SHRM in New Orleans, test driving racecars in Texas, and handing out awards at the 2017 West Michigan Walking Challenge Award Ceremony.
And while the average mortal can’t keep up with me on a daily basis, I invite you to actively follow my wild ride on my various social media channels.
