Customer First – Employee Recognition Category
- After the exceptional positive feedback we received last year for this award category, I would like to invite all of the nominees to the stage. The ladies and gentlemen nominated in this category represent exceptional customer service in the Haliburton Highlands. Without their dedication and hard work, our businesses would not shine the way they do. Because of employees like these individuals, the Chamber is happy to announce a county-wide customer service recognition program. Each of the people in this category will be showcased as a winner in this award category throughout the year. In addition, we will be launching an online campaign for consumers to nominate employees all year long.To the winners in this category, we would like to thank you for the example you have set for what customer service in the Haliburton Highlands is all about.
Thank you to our confirmed sponsors:
