NSE celebrated its employee-owners this month in its bi-monthly Big Staff meeting with the announcement of the Most Valuable Owner (MVO) awards.
The Ownership Culture Committee (OCC) created the MVO campaign as a way to increase recognition of its employee-owners throughout the year. The MVO awards spans the entire fiscal calendar (Feb - Jan) and is split into phases, capturing different departments in each phase. Employees at any level can nominate their peers for this award.
The last phase of the MVO campaign is recognition of the Rookie of the Year and Hall of Famer, which are both based on years of service. Additionally, in order to receive one of these awards, the employee must have been nominated for the MVO program during a previous phase this fiscal year.
Congratulations to this year's Rookie of the Year and Hall of Famer
HALL OF FAMER | Branden "Jimmy" Carter
According to his coworkers, "Jimmy was an MVO, but deserves to be a Hall of Famer as well. He treats everyone with care and respect. He always ahs a smile on his face, even when counting inventory can be stressful. He is very deserving of this award."
ROOKIE OF THE YEAR | Paul Samsel
"Paul has come to a new department with a great attitude and great work ethic. He has gone above and beyond with every task he is given and taken on new challenges with great success. He is willing and able to do what it takes to get the job done and is a great new addition to the Picking Team."
