KANKAKEE, Ill. — On October 24, representatives from Gordon Electric Supply awarded a $1,000 donation to the Iroquois County Animal Rescue. The donation was part of a semi-annual company program that rewards a peer-nominated employee for their embodiment of the company’s core values: reliability, compassion, teamwork, and resourcefulness. The winner chooses a charity to which Gordon Electric Supply will donate $1,000. The most recent employee honored with the Core Values Award is Rob Burgess, an e-commerce sales representative, who chose the Iroquois County Animal Rescue for their commitment to the welfare of local animals.
The purpose for the Core Values Award, according to Gordon CEO Cara Gordon Potter, “is to recognize an employee’s exceptional contribution and reward them with the honor of supporting our community with a donation from Gordon to the nonprofit of their choice.” Rob Burgess was recognized by coworkers for his dedication to teamwork and to training new employees on company culture as well as systems and procedures.
The award ceremony was held at the Iroquois County Animal Rescue facility at 100 NW Lincoln in Iroquois, Illinois.Tagged with donation
