Ripple Effect Employee Award
The Ripple Effect is given to the employee who is truly passionate about giving back and encompasses “No one can help everyone, but everyone can help someone”. For every hour that the employee volunteers, they are entered into the drawing for this award.
2021 Q2 winner is…
Laken – HR Generalist from our St. Cloud branch!
Laken actively volunteers in a variety of areas, but her favorite ways to give back are through building houses with Habitat for Humanity, Adopt-A-Highway cleanup, and helping at her son’s extracurricular activities. She believes that everyone can make a difference no matter how large or small the cause is.
