Welcome to the Employee Spotlight
Mahoney Environmental is in its third week of our new feature called the ‘Employee Spotlight’. It’s our way to reflect on and draw positive attention to the most important assets of Mahoney – its employees! A functioning business cannot function without a solid team in place, and we are extra proud of that team.
Twice monthly, an employee at Mahoney will be nominated and featured in this ‘spotlight’.
