What is the event?
An Evening with Our Network Stars is Kettering Health Network’s annual employee recognition event. This event celebrates employees who live the network’s mission, provide exceptional service, and have reached a milestone year of service. The evening includes a red-carpet entrance, heavy hors d’oeuvres, performances by Matthew West, and door prize drawings.
Who is invited?
Employees who have reached a milestone year of service are invited as well as special award winners, honorees, and leaders of honorees.
Do I need to RSVP?
Yes, an RSVP is requested by August 10 for all attending the event. Attendees can register one of two ways. An RSVP card is included with all invitations, and completed cards can be mailed to the address on the envelope included with their invitation or turned into their local campus HR office. Online registration will be available soon. All employees that submit their RSVP by July 31 will be entered to win a $250 VISA gift card as an early bird prize.
How are the years of service calculated?
Employees are given one year of credit for every calendar year in which they work a minimum of 400 hours at a Kettering Health Network facility. To receive credit for their first year of hire, an employee must meet this requirement before May 1 in their year of hire.
Will I have to go up front?
Most people can stay in their seats for the event. Employees celebrating 40 or more years of service are called to the front as a group. Additional groups called to the front are Leader’s Choice Award winners, Living the Mission Award winners, and Ohio Hospital Association Health Care Worker of the Year Award nominees.
