2017 Anniversary Appreciation LuncheonJune 6, 2017
On Tuesday, June 6th, leaders of New Vitae Wellness and Recovery welcomed all employees with over ten years of service to a special luncheon. The event recognized the valued contributions of these staff members and celebrated their dependability and loyalty. Around 40 employees enjoyed sharing lunch at the Spinnerstown Hotel, with special recognition for both individual and team accomplishments.
After sharing a buffet style lunch, each employee was recognized by name; many attendees were surprised by the number of employees with ten or more years of service. The team recognized several employees who were marking twenty years or more with the company. Donna Devlin, Executive Administrator, recalled a brief history of New Vitae, offering her sincere thanks for the audience's enthusiasm and dedication throughout several years of growth and development. As an extra gift, employees received special travel mugs and snap-back hats with the corporate logo.
It was determined that the work of the 53 people employed by New Vitae for over ten years totals up to a combined 527 years of service! Leaders were extraordinarily thankful for the staff's long-term commitment to individuals in recovery. Additionally, those in attendance offered their thanks to leadership for the opportunities associated with working for New Vitae Wellness and Recovery!
"As a staff member, I have learned a lot about mental health and I have witnessed many residents transform from a place of fear and paranoia to becoming outgoing, secure, content and able to hold a job in the community and much more.”- Cathy K. (staff)
