Employee Appreciation Day will be celebrated this Friday, March 3 by most, but at Oneida Nation Enterprises the day will serve as the grand finale of a week-long celebration of Nation employees.

The theme of the week is “First in Excellence – Cause for Applause,” signifying the Oneida Nation’s appreciation for the dedicated employees from all of its enterprises and their commitment to providing legendary, award-winning service. The festivities were officially launched Monday morning when the red carpet was rolled out and breakfast was served to Service Superstar award winners. The extensive meal and talented chefs treated this group of employees to made-to-order omelets, blended espresso drinks and gourmet cinnamon muffins and was held at Turning Stone Resort Casino. Games, prizes and video footage highlighting exceptional employee stories and created by the Nation’s production company Four Directions were other highlights of the event.

More than 100 prizes will be given out to both random winners, as well as employees nominated and selected for their exemplary service standards. Other activities include an employee talent show, freebies, games and top secret grand finale adventure this Friday. Stay tuned.
