O'Connor on a change made in response to staff request: "At our weekly meetings, we have recognized associates who have gone out of their way to help a co-worker. These associates are nominated by their peers and receive a small gift card. The employee who suggested it was the first to be recognized, for the great idea, and it has grown from there."
