Who says there is no such thing as Santa Clause?
The close of 2015 at SEEK Careers/Staffing was filled with servicing our many clients, and relishing in the holiday spirit of giving thanks and giving back to our invaluable employees.
During an internal team meeting held in mid-December, the discussion turned to “how can we give back and help some of the deserving men and women who have worked with SEEK in 2015?”
Dubbed the “Miracle on Opportunity Drive,” the initiative was created to inspire nominations from each of our 15 branch offices. Armed with a specific list of nomination criteria, the task was for each branch to collectively discuss and nominate one deserving person from each office to receive a little holiday bonus in the form of a $100 Visa/MC Gift Card.
Over the next two weeks, the nominations poured in with touching stories of employees who had overcome adversities ranging from family and personal health issues, an abusive relationship, alcohol and drug abuse, serious injury, a criminal background and even homelessness.
Others were nominated for their infectious positive attitudes, excellent work ethic, and because they are often praised as a stellar employee by the client employer.
Whatever the reasons, SEEK was proud to present 15 deserving people with a few extra funds in their pockets just in time for the holiday season.
It really was a “Miracle on Opportunity Drive.” The employees were smiling from ear-to-ear, and the little SEEK elves felt all warm and fuzzy being able to present this special gift to these amazing nominees.
