GEM Awards

Recently, FHLBank Indianapolis held its eighth GEM Awards, an employee recognition program that awards outstanding employees quarterly. This peer-to-peer focused program has an emphasis on our Guiding Principles: Foster Collaboration, Champion Inclusion, Drive Transparency, Exemplify Trust, and Empower to Deliver Results.

When an FHLBank Indianapolis employee sees a colleague doing great work, they can nominate their fellow employee with the Guiding Principle they best exemplified. Our GEM team, an employee-led group, reviews these submissions and compiles the nominations for those staff to be celebrated at an upcoming GEM Awards event and entered into a drawing for prizes. Our employees go above and beyond every day, and we aim to celebrate our wins – big and small – with a simple thank you.
