On Sept. 10, during Music Compound's annual Awards & Staff Retreat, the team dedicated the day to connecting with and learning from each other, while promoting positive well-being and mental health. Additionally, owner and president Jenny Townsend recognized four outstanding employees who have demonstrated their commitment to the company's mission to inspire, collaborate and educate.
Honorees were Aaron Schiavone, who received the Inspirational All-Star Award; Alicia Schiavone, who was recognized with the Educational All-Star Award; Jared Johnson, who was honored with the Collaboration All-Star Award; and Sam Stahlmann, who was recognized with the Summer Camp All-Star Award.
During the program, Townsend also announced the offer of reimbursement for weekly counseling of up to $1,000 per year, per staff member. Music Compound has emphasized the importance of self-care for its team, particularly with the stress and anxiety many have suffered due to the pandemic.
