Every year in December, JES Holdings holds an employee recognition and staff meeting to recognize our dedicated employees. This year, we held the event virtually.
The virtual event featured executives highlighting accomplishments from 2020, upcoming endeavors for 2021 and teams who have been essential to our success throughout the year.
Our annual employee recognition provides an opportunity to recognize employees who have been with the JES Holdings family of companies for 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years. View this video to see all of our successful employees who are celebrating one of these milestones this year!
In addition to the service awards presented at our annual ceremony, there are five notable awards given out to employees nominated by their peers and management teams. Congratulations to the outstanding winners of our 2020 achievement awards!
