Simon Sustainability Report 2021



SIMON TENURE RECOGNITION PROGRAM In recognition of Simon employees’ dedication and service, we have a Simon Tenure Recognition Program in place for all full-time employees. This program celebrates and recognizes the contributions of committed employees. It is designed to express gratitude to employees who have contributed many years of dedicated service to Simon. For those employees with longer tenure, special anniversaries are celebrated alongside impressive milestones, which are presented with a customized Yearbook and a gift of gratitude on the milestone year being recognized. As an extension of the Simon Tenure Recognition Program, the Simon 20 Year Club has been created to further recognize all employees and show appreciation for longevity and commitment. This exclusive club celebrates and honors employees who have reached 20 years of service at Simon. To acknowledge and reward longevity with the Company, 20 Year Club members will receive special recognition and perks. ACTIVATING OUR TEAMS: LIGHTS ON GATES UP A top priority for the Company is to create new revenue streams and introducing new retailers and concepts, resulting in improved occupancy numbers. To reinforce this priority, Simon launched the ‘Lights On Gates Up Campaign.’ This activation was created as a local leasing incentive to inspire teams and start an internal challenge with prizes, internal recognition, and financial compensation. Each region received a traveling trophy that went to the team with the most points. The center team that earns the most points each month gets the trophy and everlasting recognition.

EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH PROGRAM At Simon, we want to recognize and reward those employees who have stepped up and made valuable contributions to the Company’s mission and embody its core values. For these reasons, we have an Employee of the Month (EOM) award for field and corporate employees which celebrates their success and promote their outstanding work. EOM winners receive a monetary bonus, a premium parking space for a month, and of course, our sincere appreciation. In 2021, 24 employees were selected as EOMs. EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR PROGRAM At the end of the year, the Employee of the Month Committee (EOMC) gives each EOM supervisor an opportunity to provide additional nomination information about their Employee of the Year (EOY) consideration. All corporate and field EOMwinners are eligible to be our EOY. The EOMC meets to review all EOY candidates and selects the Corporate and Field EOY winner. The EOY receives an additional monetary bonus, company-wide recognition, and a customized gift.
