Five JASPER Associates were recognized in January by CEO Doug Bawel as winners of the annual ‘Do It Right’ Award for 2022.
Throughout the year supervisors, or fellow Associates, can nominate Associates for the ‘Do It Right’ Award. An Associate may be nominated for any form of outstanding service to JASPER, its Associates, or customers.
A total of 28 Associates were nominated for their services in 2022. At the end of the year management reviews all the nominations, and presents awards to the most outstanding nominees. The number of awards may vary from year to year, depending upon the number of deserving nominees. Congratulations to the following winners for 2022:
