The following memo went out to Chron employees this morning (via Romenesko)
TO: All Employees
FROM: Suzy Cain
DATE: November 6, 2008
RE: Service Awards Program to be discontinued January 1, 2009
Effective January 1, 2009, the Chronicle will discontinue its Service Awards Program. This is being done as a cost-cutting measure during difficult economic times and in no way reflects a diminished appreciation of your contributions to the organization. We sincerely regret any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause you.
The Chronicle will continue to honor the service awards for employees who had or will reach milestones of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, & 45 years prior to January 1, 2009.
Please contact the HR Business Partner for your department if you have any questions.
Thank you for your understanding.
