An organization needs to keep its employees engaged and motivated through employee recognition so that it can achieve its goals. It does this by giving its employees certificates, awards, bonuses, and other benefits. One of the certificates awarded is the employee of the year certificate. It is awarded to the best-performing employee in a particular year. Other than helping to recognize employees, the award also encourages other employees to perform better so that they can win an award next time.

In some cases, the winner of the employee of the year certificate is selected from the 12 employees awarded with the employee of the month certificate. This makes the selection easier other than choosing one employee from the many in the company. Which text does the employee of the year certificate have?
