A Thoroughbred Thanks

The Skidmore College Employee Appreciation Program was created to recognize excellence in the areas of teamwork, enthusiasm, motivation, problem-solving skills, initiating positive change, self-confidence, integrity, accomplishing goals and furthering the college’s diversity efforts.The program provides an opportunity for all members of the Skidmore community to send an appreciation card when they see other community members going above and beyond expectations to acknowledge the excellent work being done by that individual.

Each year at the Annual Retirement and Employee Recognition Event held in May, all the names for those who received A Thoroughbred Thanks throughout the year are placed into a drawing for an electronic gift donated to Human Resoures by Bond Schoeneck & King as an additional recognition to these recipients.

This program emphasizes the opportunity for all employees to be acknowledged and appreciated. On a weekly basis, Human Resources will share KUDOS given to an individual with the individual’s immediate supervisor. Thank you for taking the time to appreciate others.
