Robert W. Scher Employee of the Year Awards

Due to several requests I have extended the deadline and I am now taking nominations for our Employee of the Year Awards.  If you are one of the people who are reading this that are NOT on staff I would still like your nominations!

For those of you who are new, we bestow 6 awards each year, one for each of our values of Integrity, Community, Excellence, Teamwork, Innovation, and Service.    

Each award is based on nominations by clients, co-workers, referral sources, and community members, so this is an award from your peers.  There is no limit to the number of nominations that you can make and you can make them for any employee in any location.  To nominate a coworker for an award, you need to send me an email at jlee@signaturehealthinc.com with EOY in the subject line, identify the staff member you are nominating, identify the value or values that you are nominating them for, and the reason why you think they deserve the award.

The awards will be bestowed at our Holiday Party on Wednesday December 11th, 2013.

Nominations must be received by Tuesday December 10th, 2013 at 5pm.

Weatherhead 100 Award

Speaking of awards, this past Tuesday evening, I had the honor of attending the Weatherhead 100 award ceremony.  This year we ranked #28 in the list of 100 fastest growing businesses in the North East Ohio Area!  This is basically the same ranking we received last year (I believe we were #27) but as I pointed out earlier this is based on Revenue Growth Percentage so it gets harder and harder each year to stay on the list at all.  I did a little more digging into the list.  There was only one other organization with greater than 200 employees that ranked higher than Signature Health!  Further 85% of the organizations had less than 50 employees.  I am so proud of the Signature Health Team!  Thank you so much.  OUTSTANDING!

Holiday Celebration !

Hanukkah has already come and gone and there's only 16 shopping days till Christmas! 

So please mark your calendars for our Holiday Celebration Dinner from 6pm-9pm on Wednesday December 11th at the Croatian Lodge on Lakeshore Blvd in Eastlake which is right near Rt 91 and Lakeshore Blvd.  We will close the agency at 5pm so everyone can attend. 

We will have some door prizes again this year and activities for the kids. Dinner will be served at 7pm (cash bar available). Employee of the Year prizes will be awarded during dinner.  

I would like to try to get as many staff and family members to attend especially because we get to honor our Employees of the Year there.  Children are welcome (and encouraged) but please RSVP to Paul Brickman ASAP, especially with the number of kids and ages.
