Twenty (or longer) Anniversaries**
Those celebrating a milestone of 20 years or longer will be able to view items within both jewelry and non-jewelry categories before deciding on their gift selection. Within the custom jewelry category, celebrants may choose a Duke lapel pin or charm as their gift. At the beginning of each level of awards, The "Duke Collection" award group can be found with a "D" in the selection code, as in 030D - the Duke insignia will be offered with the award item. Only the "Duke Collection" items will feature the Duke insignia. The gift selection options vary based on years of service.
Tips for Managers
Career service milestones provide an excellent opportunity to recognize and thank your staff. We recommend that the five year gifts and 10-plus year presentation packets are given out to employees with some degree of ceremony. Some departments have a luncheon to recognize all celebrants, others set aside time at a regular staff meeting for a little presentation.
