Diamond Discovery Inspires Employee Recognition Programs

Posted by | 02-01-2019

Just 4 days ago a news released was issued to announce that a 552 carat diamond had been unearthed in Canada’s Northwest Territories. The yellow diamond was found at Diavik Diamond Mine northeast of Yellowknife in October 2018. Jim Pounds, who is the executive vice-president of diamonds for Dominion Diamonds referred to the discovery as a “miracle” (cbc.ca large/diamond/dominion).  At this point, the diamond has not been appraised and its potential worth has not been announced, however Jim Pounds says that “when all is said and done, its natural chicken-egg shape could lend well to a 150 carat, oval, yellow coloured gem” (cbc.ca large/diamond/dominion). Pound went on to say that “Canadian diamonds are some of the oldest in the world. They almost go back to the beginning of the formation of the Earth itself and individually, Canadian diamonds are over three-billion years old, many of them” (cbc.ca/large/diamond/dominion). Unique findings like the discovery of the 552 carat diamond northeast of Yellowknife inspire companies that pride themselves in running employee recognition programs in Canada. Diamond Recognition provides employee service recognition products to service the needs of businesses that reward their employees for years of service and dedication.
