ELI® is pleased to announce the establishment of the George H. Kaye Award honoring the ELI team member who, over the past year, best demonstrated ELI’s values of inclusion, integrity, client service, and overall team contribution.
As Vice President of Human Resources at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, George Kaye engaged ELI on its first assignment. Over the past 27 years, George became a dear friend to ELI’s President and CEO, Steve Paskoff and the Paskoff family. He was also a mentor to ELI leaders, a colleague and a trusted advisor. George was honest, fair, candid, funny, loyal, inclusive, kind, humble and courageous. He had an unflinching commitment to his values, his family and his friends. George passed away on February 14, 2014. At ELI, we will keep his legacy alive in our daily work and through this award.
On January 27, 2014 Steve Paskoff announced the establishment of this award and its first recipient, Adrienne Morris. Since joining ELI in 2007, Adrienne has been working as Steve’s Executive Assistant. She also collaborates with our team which includes our staff, ELI instructors, clients and others. She is respected and admired for her commitment to our values demonstrated in her daily actions involving everyone with whom she has kindly, and positively worked with excellence and enthusiasm!
The annual Kaye Award will include a prize to the recipient whose name will be added to a plaque that will be prominently on display in our new ELI Learning Center.
Our congratulations go to Adrienne Morris. And we are proud to honor George’s remarkable spirit, character and life.

Congrat’s Adrienne…Well deserved!
As George’s son, I could not be more proud to see the establishment of this award. That you to Steve, Addrienne and the whole ELI team. This means a great deal to our whole family.
What a great way to honor the importance of the work you do at ELI. Congratulations to Adrienne who has always exemplified professionalism in my work with her over the past 4 years. She is very deserving of this honor.
