In 2016 the Tamarack Institute (www.tamarackcommunity.ca) launched a Gratitude Fund. Each Tamarack staff member is provided with $500. They can use this fund to recognise and express their gratitude to other team members and to Tamarack partners. Tamarack team members are also annually eligible for an additional week of vacation for the best use of their gratitude fund. There are few constraints on how the team members use the gratitude fund - although no more than 40% can be spent on internal recognition. The People Team at Tamarack oversees the Gratitude Fund and gently reminds team members to express their gratitude over the course of the year.
