An award is something every person craves. Numerous awards are given in almost all fields, from literature to architecture. And there are some awards, absolutely bizarre in their aspects. They recognize some hilarious and rare achievements. Over the years, they have grabbed the world’s attention and even inspired competition among people to win or avoid them. Here are a few of the weirdest awards around the world.

The Darwin Awards, named after Charles Darwin, is given posthumously to those who make the ultimate sacrifice to protect the gene pool via death. Simply put, it is given to a person who dies in the most idiotic way.

The Foot in Mouth Award is presented each year to a person who makes the most confounding comment each year.

The Golden Collar Awards are like the Academy Awards, only they are presented to dogs.

So, what do “Awards” have to do with Doing Good at Work and you? I am glad you ask.

Every fall, we host the Doing Good at Work awards. The awards gathering isn’t your boring awards program or a time to be prideful or promote your political agenda. These awards are about honoring people, businesses, and organizations that are DOING GOOD. There are thousands upon thousands of good people doing good every day. We identify a few to encourage others to DO GOOD. What does the selection criteria look like?

The individuals, businesses, and organizations we select demonstrate commitment in four areas: Caring, Character, Culture, and Community. They care for their employees, employees’ families, customers/clients, supplies, and vendors. They encourage the development of character in their leadership and people. They have a better-than-average work culture. They are involved in their community and empower their people to do likewise. They are GOOD COMPANIES DOING GOOD!

Why is this important, and why should every community have their version of the Doing Good at Work Awards? It’s simple: We need to see the good being done in our world today and be encouraged to go and do good and not grow weary in doing it. 

Doing Good at Work educates, equips, and empowers individuals, businesses, organizations, and non-profit to do good daily. Doing good is contagious! We are committed to helping people discover how they can do good. You can learn more by scheduling a simple conversation.
