Employee of the Quarter – Recognizes Glenn James

Knight Federal recognizes that driven and loyal employees empower an organization.  In an effort to recognize and encourage such outstanding performance, we have implemented an Employee of the Quarter (EOQ) award for our Suffolk, VA employees.  The EOQ Program recognizes the outstanding qualities and contributions of employees towards Knight Federal’s goals and mission.

Show your appreciation and acknowledge an outstanding employee by nominating him/her for the Employee of the Quarter Award! The next Employee of the Quarter will be selected in September.  Deadline for nomination forms is August 31, 2018.

This award recognizes the accomplishments of individuals employed by Knight Federal’s Suffolk, VA location. Four individuals will receive the award each year. The honor will be awarded the beginning of April, July, October and December during the Christmas party for an outstanding employee from the three preceding months.

EOQ 2018 Winners:
