Avon honors employee performance
AVON — In 2014, the town of Avon enhanced the previous employee recognition program which recognized employees for their years of service with the town by implementing an awards program which honors employees for exceptional performance and outstanding contributions to promoting good employee relations, improving morale and increasing productivity as represented in the town’s culture statement.
Through the employee recognition program, the values of exceptional employee performance are recognized on a yearly basis.
In the second year of the program, honored employees are: Safety Initiative, Terry Carter; Bright Idea, Joe Gilles; Promoting a Happy and Fun Work Environment, Kevin Fontana; and Employee of the Year, John Curutchet.
The town also recognized employees for milestone years of service and their commitment to the town.
