Nominated by their fellow coworkers for demonstrating our core values, please join us in celebrating Jeff Guimond and Connor Hunt for their outstanding contributions to our team, customers, and company success!
We are thrilled to shine a spotlight on these exceptional team members who embody the Dennis Difference. The Dennis Difference Award was established in 2015. Nominated by their peers, the Dennis Difference Award is presented to one deserving employee each year. Among several considerations, the award is voted on and honors the employee’s distinguished commitment to upholding our company values. For many there is no higher form of recognition than being recognized by one’s peers. This Award does just that – it is for employees by employees.
