The 2021 Greenberg Awards: Celebrating Our Winners

At Minto, we know we’re only as good as our team. That’s why we have an employee recognition program (Minto BRAVO!), and why we take the time each year to reward employees for their ingenuity and accomplishments through our annual Greenberg Awards. 

In this post, we’ll share a little bit about our recognition program and the impact it’s had on our company culture, as well as our latest Greenberg Award winners.

What is Minto’s BRAVO! Program?

Minto BRAVO! is a program that enables and encourages employee and team member recognition. Since its launch in 2016, it has contributed to a rise in employee engagement levels and a reduction in employee turnover.

The adoption of the BRAVO! program has far exceeded our original expectations. To date, over 80% of employees have received recognition for going above and beyond in their contributions to our success. BRAVO! has also played an important role in recognizing exceptional individual and team contributions throughout the pandemic. In fact, approximately 15% of all recognition moments in 2020 were related to working through COVID-19.

Every year, employees that receive the highest-level BRAVO! award are nominated for a Greenberg Award under each of the Minto four values:
