Heck yes!! I was just forwarded a very complimentary email from my manager, saying that the pharmacy staff appreciated that I cleaned the med fridges at the hospital! How nice! I didn’t think anyone would notice, but it’s a great encouragement to continue being diligent about the little things at work.
