Recognition

Recognition is an important aspect of the employment experience at Bridgewell.  Our goal is that recognition is not just a “corporate” event, but a part of a culture where all employees regularly show appreciation for each other.   Bridgewell sponsored recognition efforts include:

The FISH Philosophy includes four key philosophy points to keep in mind at work:  “Choose Your Attitude,” “Make Their Day,” “Have Fun,” and “Be There.” We encourage our staff to show pride in the work they do and support the needs of the people in our services.

Service Award Recognition:  Employees reaching service milestones of 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 years receive special awards and gifts of appreciation at our Annual Employee Recognition Night and enjoy a wonderful celebration with their co-workers

Employee Communication:  Bridgewell publishes electronic newsletters on a monthly basis to inform employees of agency happenings and business news as well as promoting the achievements of employees.

Special Events and Activities:  Throughout the year special events are held at various program sites that celebrate seasons, holidays and employee achievements.


Diversity & Inclusion

Bridgewell prides itself on the diversity of its workforce. We employ staff from many different geographic parts of the world, and also respect the differences between us in areas such as race, color, gender, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, age and disability to name just a few. We recognize, celebrate and educate our dynamic workforce about these differences with the ultimate goal being to create a workplace where everyone treats others as they wish to be treated—with dignity and respect.
