A key piece of our recent core values refresh initiative was updating our program to recognize and reward Weaver team members who truly exemplify our core values. Our people have always lived these values—they are the heart behind them and the source from which they were developed—but our goal was to elevate the recognition program. We wanted to ensure that the awards were given to a select few members of our team who authentically embody our core values, day in and day out.
Ultimately, that meant narrowing a long list of nominees down to four Core Values Award finalists—one from each of our four service lines: Assurance, Tax, Advisory and Operations. Of those four, one would be selected for a prestigious firm wide award called “The Tidwell,” named for one of the firm’s founders, D. Wayne Tidwell.
This year at Weaver’s annual State of the Firm meeting, we had the opportunity to recognize those four individuals. The winners were nominated by their managers and peers, then selected by our culture committee for being exemplary models of living our values. Congratulations to our Core Values Award recipients and the one Tidwell Award winner. Thank you for so readily demonstrating Weaver’s Core Values. People like you are what make Weaver a great place to work.
