With great joy, I’m happy to announce we’ve been named a Top Employer in the National Capital Region for 2017 for the third year in a row! As we have in years past, I invite our entire OCSB community to celebrate with us by participating in our #OCSBcelebrates social media campaign. This special campaign allows us to pause, observe, and recognize the outstanding employees that make our school board such a wonderful community.
Last year, we received over 2000 nominations from members of our OCSB community. This year, we’re already over 1000 nominations! The first 500 nominated employees received a special prize in the mail from me, and at the end of our campaign we will draw the names of 50 nominated employees to receive a large prize pack!
It only takes a few minutes to fill out the #OCSBcelebrates nomination form, but the impact of recognizing someone can truly brighten up their day for weeks! Remember, anyone in our community can submit a nomination whether you’re a student, parent, staff, or someone connected to our board through one of our many partner organizations.
Thank you in advance for your participation in this exciting activity, and congratulations to the employees of the Ottawa Catholic School Board for this outstanding accomplishment. Let’s celebrate!
