Every fall, our HR department organizes and executes Employee Appreciation Week to say, “thank you” to all of our dedicated staff at the agency. This was one of our most interactive weeks to date.
A week-long celebration
This year’s Employee Appreciation Week spanned from Monday, October 21 – Friday, October 25. Each day of the week featured a different theme and gave staff an opportunity to express their interests and personalities. Monday celebrated movies, Tuesday showcased music, staff rooted for their favorite sports teams on Wednesday, hometowns were repped on Thursday and Friday concluded the week with everyone sporting their Arc Wayne gear.
With more than 550 employees in nearly three dozen programs across multiple counties, our staff help the agency achieve extraordinary goals to better serve individuals with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout the community. Employees come from all different backgrounds and bring in various skills that make The Arc Wayne one of the biggest and most diverse workplaces in Wayne County.
Supporting hundreds every day
It’s because of the dedicated, person-centered approach of our organization’s employees that we can continually improve our services and cater to more than 1,700 people’s individual needs. As the agency continues to expand and launch new innovative services, our employees continue to put their time, talents and hearts toward a shared a mission of serving the community. Whether it’s long hours, extra shifts, taking a pay cut from another job to work at the agency or stepping outside of their comfort zones, our employees are the reason individuals of all abilities can find services and supports that enhance their all-around quality of life.
Employee Appreciation Week is one small way The Arc Wayne can take time to recognize the hard work each staff member does every day.
Check out our week-long fun for Employee Appreciation.
