Accolades: An award or privilege granted as a special honor or as an acknowledgement of merit.

Associated Food Stores is excited to announce a new team member recognition program called AFS Accolades, powered by AwardCo. AFS Accolades allows you to recognize your peers and team members for doing great work, going above and beyond, wishing them a happy birthday and more!

The team at AwardCo states:

“We make it easy to make employees happy. Rewards and recognition are proven to improve morale and boost employee loyalty. That means retention goes up! The process is simple: when people are recognized and rewarded for doing a good job they are more motivated and more engaged in their work, which leads to them getting recognized more. It’s a beautiful cycle. And a fun one, too.”

“We are excited to be able to open recognition opportunities for the whole team to create a One AFS experience. This new program will allow us to fully integrate the team experience with our existing rewards and recognition programs as well as expand the opportunities for our team members to recognize one another,” said Tim Conner, senior vice president of team services.

Once the program is ready, you will be provided instructions on how to login and onboard on AFS Accolades. Keep watching Team News and StoreLink for further updates.
