You might say employees have been pushed to their limits more this year than ever before. However, this in turn makes it more important than ever to also show support for your staff and recognise their achievements. A global pandemic is no time to stop recognition for your people who are likely feeling low already from the state of the world.
Praise goes a long way and making staff feel accomplished and proud of their work is a small pick-me-up that employers can provide to improve their day to day experience of living through this challenging time.
ICD Property is ensuring that their cohort feel valued and recognised for their contributions and is determined to retain the company’s award-winning culture that continues to exceed all expectations.
Despite COVID-19 preventing ICDians from holding their usual annual awards function, the team persisted with a virtual party this year. While the celebrations were not our usual glitz and glamour of champagne and canapes, we certainly didn’t miss out on the laughter, praise, comradery, and celebration from everyone.
The team got together over a Zoom call with a dress code of formal on the top half and casual on the bottom – the WFH version of business casual.
During the evening ICDians celebrated the winners and their achievements over the previous year and connected in the best way they know how – competitive spirit (A quiz of the year, Pictionary, and Scattegories made all the more competitive on a group Zoom call).
A company’s values are intrinsic to its success and ICD employees live and breathe those values throughout the year; pushing themselves to achieve remarkable goals.
In 2020 the award winners were as follows:
