OGEA Stars

OGEA Star Awards

GEA STAR awards are peer submitted recognitions of the hard work and above and beyond attitude seen in so many of our colleagues in the day to day. We pause to take a moment to recognize those around us that make the sun shine a little brighter at work. Here are some of our STARS recognized so far this year in OGEA. Thank you to our STARS and to those that took the time to recognize them.


You can submit your STAR colleague through our website www.ogea.org/star
