The City of Red Deer is honouring employees differently this year.
With the COVID-19 restrictions still in place, the city delivered its annual Employee Recognition Awards to employees, rather than host an awards banquet.
Friday, the city announced Char Rausch was the winner of the Bob Stollings Award, which goes to an employee who has displayed outstanding civic performance in alignment with the city’s cornerstone values – respect, integrity, service and excellence.
Nominations are submitted by fellow coworkers detailing the employee’s achievements professionally and interpersonally, along with letters of support.
Rausch is a corporate events specialist, but has held many roles within the city throughout her more than 35 years of service. From her time with the RCMP, mayor and city manager’s office, legislative services and now with corporate communications. She brings her dedication to community and never-ending energy, to her work.
“Those who know Char, know the passion, commitment to excellence, and complete care she puts into everything she does,” says Tracy Bruce, human resources manager. “More than 35 years of service, Char has lived our corporate values and we are happy to celebrate her accomplishments by presenting her with the Bob Stollings Award.”
