At Life’s WORC’s monthly breakfast, an employee is presented with an oversized, colorful stuffed fish by another employee for living the organization’s values. “The employee tells everyone why they are nominating this colleague and everyone has an opportunity to congratulate them,” says Janet Koch. “The employee then gets to keep the fish for the month. The fish has been dressed up, stolen, ransom notices have been made, videos starring the fish have been shared.” Life’s WORC also hosts an annual Family Day, and employees participate in walking events for Life’s WORC and other charities. Past Family Day locations have included The Bronx Zoo and Coney Island. In addition to regular social activities, employees have free access to an in-office gym.
“We continuously look for new and resourceful ways to reward our employees’ hard work and dedication.”
