Garver announces 2021 Spirit of Garver Award finalists
Over the course of the past several years, Garver has experienced a level of growth unlike anything the firm has seen since its founding in 1919. This has been especially evident given the number of recent industry-wide awards that Garver has received even in the past several months – all of which speaks to Garver’s desire to not only grow but maintain an expected level of excellence amidst that growth.
Although considerably less visible outside the company, there’s another measure of success that reflects Garver’s ongoing growth – and that is the highest honor that the firm can award to its employees: the Spirit of Garver Award. Since 2012, Garver has awarded 22 of these honors to Garver employees who exemplify a passion for their profession and a dedication to upholding Garver’s values.
And even though the company has grown a great deal since the first Sprit of Garver Awards, the message and the spirit remains the same.
Nominations are made by Garver employees and then a selection committee narrows that list to a selection of finalists. Winners will be announced in October.
