Every year at KW Habilitation, we get together to celebrate our staff for their years of service. As we near the end of 2023, we took the time at our annual Staff Recognition event to recognize all the people at KW Habilitation who have continued to make a difference over the years in the lives of the people we support.
This year we celebrated many amazing staff members who have been working with us from 5 years all the way to 45 years! The event took place at Borealis Grille & Bar, and was a total hit filled with great food, amazing people, and a super fun surprise!
After weeks of practice, our incredible staff planned a surprise flash mob for our CEO, Ann Bilodeau to celebrate her 45 years of service here at KW Hab! The flash mob consisted of members of our leadership team, folks from the Board of Directors, and staff who have had the pleasure of working alongside Ann, and wanted to show their gratitude for all she has done for our organization to make our company culture a place that is worth sticking around for years.
The flash mob was a total surprise to Ann! John Martin, the Director of Early Learning, Child Care and Family Resources began by reciting a poem dedicated to Ann that was interrupted by the hit song “Uptown Funk,” by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars. Soon, the flash mob team all took their place at the front of the room and began performing a dance for Ann that had been choreographed and practiced weeks prior.
Overall, our Staff Recognition event was a beautiful way to celebrate our staff for their hard work and dedication over the years. The work that we do at KW Habilitation matters, the people we work for matter and the people we hire are the silent heroes behind the scenes that help fulfill and bring our vision to create a community where everyone belongs and participates to life. A huge thank you goes out to all of our staff for all that they do for the people we work for at KW Hab!
