This has been a remarkable year for Markon–a year of constant change, new opportunities, and great success. One thing that remains the same is our vision to create a path to success for our employees and clients without disrupting the culture we have worked hard to create.
The path to success for our employees has shown up in many different ways. Twenty-one employees were promoted, 27 earned professional certifications, 141 improved their skills through Markon University-sponsored training, ten leaders participated in our fourth class of the Leadership Development Program, and numerous employees embraced new roles within their team or made moves to career-enhancing client opportunities.
The path to success for our clients was just as impressive. We received dozens of client letters of recognition or appreciation and reached many different project success milestones. Our clients earned several excellence awards for efforts supported by Markon. We also continued our 100% success rate for contract re-competes.
Throughout 2016, we had many success stories related to our projects and company culture. Some of these included:
In 2017, we are continuing progress toward our DRIVE to 2020 long-term goals. It continues to be an exciting time to work for Markon. We expect this year to be our most successful year yet. Thank you for all that you do for Markon, your community, and our clients.
