Just a reminder that all nominations for this month’s Employee of Distinction are due by Tuesday, January 16. This program provides an excellent opportunity to show appreciation and support for your co-workers and to recognize them for a job well done. The Employee of Distinction nomination form is located here.

To nominate a co-worker, explain why you think your candidate is worthy of the award. A list of factors to consider when submitting a nomination include the nominee’s history of accomplishments, level of determination, motivation and interpersonal skills. Upon supervisor approval, all nominations are reviewed by the college’s Employee Engagement Team, which will use the information provided in the application to make a fair and objective selection. Each month, the Employee of Distinction is featured in The Dome. He or she also receives a non-monetary incentive  and is presented with the award by the president and his/her supervisor.

Additionally, please note that the Ideas to Action Box is still open to any employee who would like to contribute feedback and process improvement recommendations in a confidential manner. The following options are available for submitting ideas:

  • One physical box next to the Human Resources notice board in Old Main 100
  • One virtual box available here.

All ideas submitted through the Ideas to Action Box are reviewed by the senior leadership team. Any employee who submits a process improvement idea that is implemented receives recognition in The Dome and a prize.

Please contact the Human Resources Department at Ext. 2240 with any questions.
