Year of the GROUPer

Posted on January 28th, 2013

The Caskey Group GROUPerLast year it was THE ROCK.  This year’s weekly employee recognition is the GROUPer AWARD.

“THE ROCK gave employees the opportunity to tell their peers ‘thanks for being my rock’.  It was a great team-building, appreciation-building tool,” said President Tony Rife. “This year, THE GROUPer reinforces that we are all ‘in the group’.  Caskey Group is not a person or a single department.  Together, we are ALL Caskey Group.”

Each week, the previous GROUPer recipient must choose an employee whom they want to recognize.  They must write a short paragraph stating why they chose the new GROUPer AWARD recipient.  The paragraph is posted in the break room and included with paychecks. The new recipient keeps the plastic GROUPER at their work station for the week until they pass it on the following Monday.

The GROUPer also comes with a little something to add to the recognition. According to one Caskey team member, “THE GROUPer definitely makes a fun statement.  It is truly an unattractive fish, but the $10 bill sticking out of its mouth each week makes him much more appealing.”

2013’s first GROUPer recipient is RENEE SCHAEDTLER.  Katie Gilbert, 2012’s final ROCK recipient, said, “When I had the opportunity to choose the Rock last year, I looked for the person who stood out as the most as helpful to me on the projects that I was working on. As I’m thinking of the first Recipient of the Grouper, I’m thinking of the person who has stood out the most over the last few weeks in terms of being part of THE GROUP. This week, I choose Renee Schaedtler. Renee may be new at Caskey, but she strives every day to learn more, take on new challenges, and is always willing to help Ann and me. She has a great positive attitude, even when faced with the challenge of learning something new. If an error is made, she’s willing to accept accountability and learn what to do, in order to better herself, and be the best she can at her job. So this week I say, Renee – you’re definitely in the GROUP!”

Congratulations to Renee Schaedtler, Caskey’s FIRST GROUPER AWARD RECIPIENT!
