At Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., the dining team took care to celebrate staff members on National Employee Appreciation Day last Friday.
Finger foods themed around Thanksgiving, such as fried green beans, mac-and-cheese bites and pie, were served at the Food Court at Reber-Thomas, and managers crafted words of praise for specific team members to be shared on social media.
In addition, students were asked to write thank-you notes to the dining department, which is run by Sodexo, and employees had the chance to enter into a raffle.
“We want to make sure our employees know how valuable they are to our Liberty Dining family,” Sodexo Marketing Manager Shelby Burton said in a statement. “Our food service employees deserve recognition and appreciation every single day.
