The Lotus Award is given out at Alternatives Annual Meeting to an employee who has shown outstanding dedication to our mission, vision, and values. The recipient’s commitment to living our culture and values is demonstrated by the relationships they have built with our members, our organization, and within the community.
“It’s a surprise and honor to be recognized for my contributions over the years. Alternatives has been a wonderful place to work, is supportive of my career, and has values that I believe in. I enjoy being part of a team that improves people’s lives. I have personally witnessed a positive impact on the many members I helped with Auto, Energy Efficiency, Home Equity and Back on Track loans. This unexpected recognition of my contributions gives me a sense of pride, security, and confidence. I will redouble my efforts in serving the organization to the best of my abilities.” – Tolkyn Aidarova-Vuong
