Core Value Awards

Each year, Avesta honors staff members who have best personified each of our Core Values.

Avesta Housing’s annual Core Value Awards were presented at our recent All-Staff Day.

There was one award for each of our Core Values:

  • Humanity: We care about people
  • Stewardship: We manage our resources responsibly, efficiently and sustainably
  • Relationships: We seek meaningful interaction and effective collaboration
  • Quality: We pursue excellence in all our work

Please join us in recognizing and celebrating the wonderful work of our 2017 Core Value Award winners!’
