Throughout the Week


Back by popular demand…take advantage of the appreciation blog to let your fellow co-workers know how much you appreciate them during VPSW.  The blog will go live on the 12th and can be accessed at the following address:  http://vpsw.umwblogs.org.  You can also drop off your “thank you” at the Fairfax House and a Human Resources staff member will post them.


Each day of the week, a lucky employee will be the winner of a $100 Macys gift card during VPSW.  A random drawing will take place and then the winner will be notified by email.  Winners for the week will also be posted in the Eagle Eye next week.
