“We Make RECOGNITION Happen”


Awards Announced at Next Administration and Finance Town Hall.



The Administration and Finance Peer Champions program is a home grown peer-to peer recognition A&F pilot program, created by employees of A&F for employees of A&F.  It is designed to recognize and celebrate the unique and outstanding contributions of our A&F peers.  As it is in its initial launch phase, we do anticipate a pilot end date of January 2016.


We value building community by celebrating the exemplary work and camaraderie shared within our organization.  We value and appreciate the quality of our employee’s work and life environment, recognizing exceptional innovation, collaboration and service excellence.
