West Conshohocken, PA (April 13, 2017) – Kindness is having a moment. At SMG, we couldn’t agree more and we are encouraged to see kindness being celebrated, by other companies like Waterford Crystal through their Greatest Gifts Campaign, and media giants like Oprah in her April issue of O, The Oprah Magazine. SMG has been cultivating, celebrating and recognizing kindness for decades.
2017 is the 40th Anniversary year for SMG. As part of our planned anniversary festivities we’ve launched our Gift of Kindness Contest.
Paying homage to this year’s greatest gift, that of kindness, SMG developed our own internal “Gift of Kindness” contest. Enthusiastically approved by SMG’s President, Wes Westley and the members of his management team in January, the contest was officially launched in March.
The Gift of Kindness contest is meant to recognize employees demonstrating kindness in their work life or their personal life. Employee submissions will be accepted throughout the year, with a winner announced each quarter and an overall winner announced in December 2017. Each winner will receive cash prizes and special limited edition Waterford “2017 The Gift of Kindness” signature ornaments.
“We want to celebrate the kind of character that has set SMG apart for our first 40 years and will continue to drive our success in the future,” said Maureen Ginty, Executive Vice President, SMG.
