Posted on November 1, 2019
Country Bank recently held its annual Staff Recognition event with an evening filled with comradery, great food, games and entertainment. During this event, fellow staff members came together to celebrate, not only their on-going daily contributions to the organization, but also to recognize the recipient of the President’s Platinum Award.
Country Bank believes in continually fostering an environment of appreciation for its staff and customers. The “CB Shines” Program encourages staff members to be on the look-out for co-workers that embody the Bank’s established corporate values of Integrity, Service, Teamwork, Excellence and Prosperity; also known as the Bank’s “iStep” values. Within this program, an employee can receive different levels of recognition: Silver Spotlight (awarded anytime), Gold Star (awarded quarterly) and the President’s Platinum (awarded annually).
“The staff at Country Bank contributes to the Bank’s success in so many ways throughout the year and we are delighted to celebrate their contributions at our annual staff outing. I was pleased to award this year’s President’s Platinum award to Matt Croft, IT Solutions Architect. Matt embodies the Bank’s values and its mission; Matt was nominated by two co-workers who recognized the contributions that Matt makes to the organization, his co-workers and our customers on a daily basis. Our staff members are second to none”, stated Paul Scully, President and CEO of Country Bank.
From his nominees – “Matt shares his knowledge and continually collaborates with teammates by asking for their opinions and different viewpoints to solve problems. He analyzes situations and if he sees that someone has a heavy workload to meet a deadline, he pitches in to lend a hand to hit the target date. He follows up with appreciation and sincere gratitude towards others for their efforts.”
“I was very surprised and honored to receive the President’s Platinum award. I’m truly grateful for the recognition and being nominated by my co-workers. Even more so, I’m humbled by the overwhelming support of my co-workers in receiving this award. It really speaks to the sense of community at the Bank and the people that work here” stated Matt Croft.
