At Design Group, we have always believed that appreciation, praise, and recognition are essential to an outstanding working environment. Our professionals are empowered and encouraged to regularly take a few minutes from their day to recognize a fellow colleague for a job well done. Consequently, if you are a part of Design Group, it will not be uncommon at all for you to receive e-mails, or face-to-face interactions that express appreciation and recognition. More than this, Design Group goes further through the formally instituted recognition awards, which are conducted year round.
‘We will continuously celebrate success.’
One of these formal recognition awards instituted by Design Group is PRIDE - Professionals Recognizing Individuals who Demonstrate Excellence. The PRIDE Award is designed to recognize professionals who exemplify leadership or client development through their direct or indirect efforts. The PRIDE Award provides professionals an opportunity to formally recognize and acknowledge peers for exceptional individual performance, positive influence and inspirational behavior.
For our professionals, the PRIDE Award has come to be a significant moment in their journey within the firm. Professionals are honored to be recognized by their teams and peers. They are filled with a great sense of satisfaction in belonging to an organization that appreciates them with this unique program.
In this blog post, we have highlighted the contributions of some of our PRIDE Award winners from this year who have exemplified the Design Group Rules of Culture.
