2021 Franchise Awards

Several 2021 franchise awards were presented during Holwerda Enterprise’s all-franchise meeting held on January 27, 2022.

Our organization’s motto is, “Treat People Right. Work Hard. The Rest Will Come.”

In the spirit of this saying, three individuals were recognized – each for embodying one of the three values.

TREAT PEOPLE RIGHT AWARD

The Treat People Right Award is designed to recognize a colleague who has displayed an exceptional level of service and has gone above and beyond what is expected of them when interacting with internal colleagues, Remedy clients, and/or Remedy associates. This colleague consistently serves an “unforgettable cup of coffee.”

Nominees for this award:

  • Make the workplace enjoyable.
  • Demonstrate a positive attitude.
  • Consistently receive positive reviews and/or feedback from internal/external customers.
  • Consistently show appropriate patience and empathy.
  • Consistently communicate clearly and professionally.
  • Respond to communications in a timely manner.
  • Actively listen to internal/external customers, making them feel valued and heard.

The 2021 Treat People Right Award Winner is Natalie Sims, a recruiter from our Onalaska office. Congratulations, Natalie!

THE REST WILL COME AWARD

The Rest Will Come Award is designed to recognize a colleague who has achieved high levels of success in the organization and/or has been instrumental (directly or indirectly) in earning or saving resources (time, money, etc.) for the franchise.

  • Were instrumental (directly or indirectly) in earning and/or saving a significant number of resources (time, money, etc.) for the franchise.
