David B. Grinberg
First off, if feds need anything these days it's a welcome morale boost. Thus good thinking Dave!
But would you consider making it even more employee-centric,especially due to the resource contraints and/or paying out of pocket (not sure how many folks you manage). This may enhance morale by immediately empowering them as key players and decision makers in the process. You may also come across some very creative ideas no-cost ideas.
Therefore, consider this:
- Ask employees for their ideas at the outset, then choose the most popular ones (as you deem appropriate), then go to the "powers that be" for approval (as needed). What do you think, Dave, Steve and Terry?
