Employees give vacation hours to coworker in need
12- 11- 2014
It might sound cliché, but we like to think of ourselves as a big family here at Cadet. When one of us is in a bind, others will come to the rescue. When news recently broke that an employee on medical leave was about to run out of sick time, other employees jumped to his aid. That employee, who we are not naming for privacy reasons, asked our HR department to put the word out he could use some help. We sent out a notice and within 24 hours, 80 hours of vacation time were donated to the employee, the maximum allowed by the company. One employee donated 30 hours of personal vacation time. This vacation gifting program has been in place for 7 years and has been a big help to many others here at Cadet. It's just one of many ways that we take care of each other. Thanks so much to everyone who donated their personal hours.
