Rewards and Recognition Program
HOMESTAR recognizes and rewards our employees to encourage and reinforce the actions and behaviors that create a better working environment.
Behaviors such as teamwork, customer service, communication, accountability, and leadership – regardless of your position or level – are important to the success of everyone at HOMESTAR. These behaviors are referred to as the Wayfinders Code. There are two distinct sets of Wayfinders Codes in HOMESTAR’s Rewards and Recognition program: one defined as the Wayfinders Competency Code and the other defined as the Wayfinders Cultural Code.
The HOMESTAR Rewards and Recognition program aims to achieve the following objectives:
- Reward and recognize actions or behaviors that connect to HOMESTAR’s values and core competencies to enable growth, results, and a positive customer experience
- Standardize specific rewards and recognition criteria that explain the business impact, successes, and best practices on delivering the company's mission, vision, and values
- Provide fairness and consistency with nominations and selection
Wayfinders Cultural Code
The Wayfinders Cultural Code is a set of five core behaviors, driven by our culture – that help us live the HOMESTAR way! The Wayfinders Cultural Code clearly defines the behaviors that are appreciated at HOMESTAR with criteria that integrates with our Rewards and Recognition programs.
