Employee Appreciation Week
NAPI had their annual Employee Appreciation week from Tuesday, October 25 through Friday, October 28, 2022, hosted by the HR Department. Pre-pandemic, NAPI would join together for a dinner filled with employees and their families while enjoying live entertainment and prizes. Since 2019, the HR Department had to be creative to show the employees how much they are appreciated with activities that were fun and most importantly - safe.
This year, the event began with employees competing in the "Do-it-yourself" contest. The crafty winners for the event were: 1st place - C. Tanner; 2nd place - B. Horner and W. Jumbo; 3rd place - L. Padilla and R. Felson. On Wednesday, the employees showed their cooking skills by submitting their best dish. The cooking winners were 1st place - M. Lewis; 2nd place - D. Kady; and 3rd place - L. Padilla. On Thursday, the employees spooked the farm with their best costumes! The festive winners were 1st place - A. Pablo; 2nd place - R. DeGroat; and 3rd place - R. Felson. From Monday through Thursday, the HR Department held a daily raffle drawing for employees to win great prizes. Today, the employees are enjoying a catered meal by Primal Swine Co. All locations across NAPI are closing at 11 a.m.
NAPI would like to recognize the employees who have reached a special year in their career working on the farm. For 2022, there were 36 employees who earned their "Years of Service" award. NAPI is proud of all the employees and appreciate their hard work and dedication. Ahéhee' nitsaago!
