Stretch, the giraffe, is Simantel’s employee-to-employee recognition award.

Each month, the award is passed to the employee who did something truly amazing—or “stretched” beyond his or her everyday tasks. If honored with Stretch, the recipient gets to add something unique to represent his or her personality. The award winner also has the honor of passing him along to the next person that is most deserving.
