Jawonio celebrates the longevity of its staff every year. This year we celebrated 1,175 cumulative years of service among our staff. Starting at five years of service, employees are given a gift of appreciation and for those who have worked at Jawonio for ten years or longer, they are celebrated at our annual Longevity Breakfast. This special event is an opportunity for us to acknowledge the years of service of our dedicated staff and the contributions that they have made to our organization and to the lives of the people we serve.
This year’s breakfast was held on Friday, December 2, 2016 where sixty employees who have worked at Jawonio for ten, fifteen, twenty, twenty-five and thirty years were honored for their years of service. Each twenty, twenty-five and thirty year honoree was introduced by a supervisor who shared the special qualities each of them has brought to his/her work and the positive impact that they have had on the people they work with.
Madelon Berger, Jawonio Inc. Board Chairwoman and Jim Johansen,
Jawonio Foundation Board President, both gave warm greetings andJill Warner, Jawonio CEO welcomed all and shared her pride in the work of our tremendously dedicated employees.
“We are a family for the individuals we care for. Many of our employees have been with us for a long time which creates continuity with our consumers and helps us create that sense of family. At times someone may decide to move from one position to another. We encourage growth at Jawonio and like to see people stay with our organization when they are seeking a change. Our dedicated employees are what makes Jawonio the special caring place that it is.” Jill Warner, CEO
