benefitexpress is proud to be a company that honors exceptional performance. That's why we created the Standing Ovation Award - an award given to several employees each quarter to honor and recognize their efforts of going above and beyond to fulfill our Community Pillars.
Nominations are submitted by fellow peers, and are tallied, read and carefully considered before being awarded at our company-wide 'Town Hall' meetings each quarter. Each award is read aloud to highlight just how much the winners have done to deserve the recognition – and when their names are finally announced, we rise to our feet in applause! Standing Ovation Award winners also receive $2,500.
System Specialist, Kevin Mikusch, wins the first Standing Ovation Award for the third quarter at benefitexpress.
