In 2018, UMH announced the first annual peer to peer employee recognition program to honor and acknowledge excellence at work. This year, the decision was made to open the nominations to teams and departments as well as individuals. The award recipients in 2019 were employees who embody the mission, vision, and values of UMH, produce quality work, and consistently display characteristics valued and appreciated by their fellow employees and the residents we serve.
