edited (33 of 72)Innovation: Casey Cassidy, Information Technology (KCIT)

This award recognizes creative use of technology and/or innovative approaches to reaching employees.  This employee was proactive in organizing Lunch and Learns that introduced her department to the work of various nonprofits. When the first one had low attendance, she didn’t get discouraged, she got innovative! She offered an online viewing option via Skype that dramatically grew her audience. Her inventiveness helped KCIT increase their overall departmental participation from 2016.

“KCIT staff had positive feedback on the lunch and learns that Casey organized and bringing the visibility of the nonprofits to our workplace allowed our staff to see how the employee giving program benefits our community.”~Nominator

Awesome job, Casey!
