A Chairman’s Award recipient is an SJC associate recognized by their peers for their standout efforts in bringing our SJC values to life. These include a commitment to our clients, initiative and learning and giving back to our communities. Each year we select one recipient from each of our Content, Media and Print divisions. We celebrate them across the company and they have the opportunity to select their charity of choice to receive a full-page ad in one of our magazines. Without further ado, here are our 2019 recipients! (Our 2020 Chairman’s Award will kick off this fall.)
Project Manager, SJC Content
“Rona’s inherent work ethic and drive to learn has enabled her to collaborate well with colleagues, clients and third-party vendors. She also believes in knowledge-sharing so that the team members on her projects are all tapped into what is going on.” Rona’s Charity of Choice: Socks 4 Souls Canada, which collects and distributes socks, the most needed but least donated item of clothing to homeless shelters.
“A few years ago, I came back from a trip and was devastated at seeing how many homeless people are fighting for their lives, only to realize that this is an issue here at home. I think if we can continue taking small steps within each of our communities, we can start working towards real solutions.”
Marketing & Events Coordinator, SJC Media
“Despite being here only a year after a 3-month internship, Angie’s mastered our department’s business and beyond. She’s now the go-to for multiple areas including website management, creative design, marketing programs and more.” Angie‘s Charity of Choice: The Farley Foundation, which helps low-income pet owners in Ontario by subsidizing the cost of non-elective veterinary care for their sick or injured pets.
“The Farley Foundation is a charity that my sister works closely with in her capacity as a veterinary technician. We have always had numerous animals at home which were considered to be family members. Their health and importance in the family was never second guessed, but with no health coverage for animals, it’s harder to care for them. The Farley Foundation is important to me because there are animals that are loved and cared for, who need medical care and often their owners are unable to pay for this. I think we do a really good job at promoting health resources and options for us but we need more for our pets.”
Site Manager, ePRINTit Halifax, SJC Print
“Peter treats his employees with great respect and has a fun and highly efficient working environment. He is the first to bring in new ways of doing things and work on new methods as our business changes. He has developed an environmentally friendly recycle program in Halifax and has been very conscientious with employees to ensure we are using the best method practices…Peter always donates his time to our community when called upon for donations and sponsorships.” Peter’s Charity of Choice: The Tema Foundation, which is dedicated to the education and support of all first responders and their families in regards to Critical Incident Stress (CIS) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It is based in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
