Reward for a job well done

As I participated in this year’s Rewards and Recognition ceremony at Ontario Shores, I felt a sense of gratitude for the opportunity to show appreciation of the hard work and dedication that our staff displays daily.  

For me, the day was especially meaningful when I saw how much it meant to so many of our staff.  Not only was the room filled to capacity, but the air was undeniably charged with excitement and filled with anticipation.  I felt the joy and the immense pleasure that they took in celebrating each other.  I felt the pride in sharing in the success of their peers, knowing that their accomplishment was part of a greater triumph for all of us at Ontario Shores. 

For the Senior Management Team, these awards are a physical representation of the empowering work that our staff do.  It has often been said that the most important resource of any organization is its employees.  I couldn’t agree more. 

For us at Ontario Shores, we are confident in the ability of our people – knowing they bring a wealth of expertise and knowledge to their job.  Beyond that, we are inspired by their willingness to create an environment of compassion, recovery and hope for our patients and their families.  The work they do on a daily basis is meaningful and profoundly impacts the lives of others.

Thank you!

This year we celebrated staff members who have contributed a number of years to the organization, ranging from five up to an incredible 40 years of outstanding service to making a difference at Ontario Shores.

Thank you for your continued dedication and loyalty.

We are also very proud of those who were recognized for living our values every day.  Through your leadership, initiative and creativity, they have become role models to their peers. 

Congratulations to the recipients of the 2014 Values in Action awards.
