The Extra Step is an employee-managed program to recognize and reward the employees who take that extra step.
Employees can nominate co-workers who they feel go above and beyond the normal scope of their jobs. The nominations are reviewed by an employee committee. Each quarter, cash bonuses are awarded to those selected who took that exceptional extra step. The quarterly winners are entered into the Winner's Circle. At year's end, the grand prize of a vacation worth $2500 and a week in which to take it is awarded to one of that year's winners.
