Today,
employees have
more than just a
job; they are now
representatives
of a new way of
doing business.
Tom Hill, Kimray Inc.
As a result of an emphasis on character,
• Our company had a 25 percent increase in profits in the
first two years even though the market we served was
depressed.
• Worker’s compensation claims decreased 80 percent.
• Employee morale rose to an all-time high.
The Certificate of Recognition
serves several purposes:
• It conveys in written form the essence of what was
publicly stated.
• It communicates to the employee’s family members the
value of the employee to the company.
• A copy of the certificate becomes a permanent part of
the employee’s work record.
• The certificate becomes a character reference in the
resume of the employee.
• The certificate is the source of continuing
encouragement to the employee.
