Trip of a Lifetime: Cassandra Engeldinger's Christmas Cabin Retreat
“For my five-year anniversary trip, I chose to rent a beautiful home in the Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg, TN and treat my family to an old-fashioned Christmas together; the kind I used to have when I lived closer to all of them in Wisconsin," said Digital Communications Supervisor Cassandra Engeldinger. "There are certainly a lot of extravagant, far-off places I could have gone on my trip but there is nowhere else I would have rather been than with my family. We spent two fun-filled weeks together and it is now by far, one of the most special and memorable trips any of us have taken in our lifetimes – and most of us have been to many places in the world! Arthrex offers many wonderful benefits, but to me, this is one of the most valuable. I thought many times during my trip about the uniqueness and generosity of it. It made me feel good to give it to them as my gift. There aren’t many companies that can make this happen – it truly was a trip of my lifetime and for that, I am eternally grateful!"
One of Arthrex’s most distinctive and valued recognition programs is the Years of Service Awards and “Trip of a Lifetime” program. Employees who achieve five years of service with Arthrex are eligible for a company paid trip just like Cassandra's to the destination of their choice and an extra 40 hours of Paid Time Off (PTO) in which to take the trip. This “Trip of a Lifetime” benefit is awarded for every additional five years of service at increasing reimbursement increments. Employees look forward to this generous benefit to create a lifetime of special memories.
