Employee Appreciation Fund
We don’t allow residents to tip our employees, so the residents started an Employee Appreciation Fund. In Masonic Village, there are three restaurants and three cafés, and the menus have printed: “No tipping required. Any tips will be donated to the Employee Appreciation Fund.” Anywhere there is high traffic of residents, a contribution box is put out. The money is used to purchase gift cards. Once a year resident volunteers will personally hand the gift cards to each hourly employee, thanking them for what they do.
