Employee Recognition Critera

Criteria for Selection

The Washington College Featured Employee is selected based on overall quality of work and dedication to the College by an administrative and/or support and service staff member. Reflecting the diverse nature of the College’s workforce, the Washington College Featured Employee should consistently model many of the following qualities: flexibility, adaptability, initiative, leadership, responsibility, and innovation. Outside activities relating to the person’s work (activities in work-related organizations or service to campus and community organizations) may also be considered.

The Washington College Featured Employee program recognizes outstanding achievement, performance, creative contributions, and/or improvement beyond what is normally expected of employees. Consideration may be given to such factors as special contributions to the College as a whole, successful completion of a special project, ideas for improved work methods, or outstanding dedication to the College.

Nominations and Selection

Nominations can be submitted by the nominee’s direct supervisor or by any Washington College faculty, staff, or student. If submitted by two co-workers, either separate nomination forms or one nomination form signed by both nominators may be submitted. Student nominations must be accompanied by a nomination form signed by the nominee’s direct supervisor. Selection is made by majority vote of the Staff Council. Nominees not selected will be automatically reconsidered at subsequent meetings of the Council within the same fiscal year. The Council will maintain confidentiality on the subject of nominees, and on the selection process. Staff Council members and their alternates are not eligible for nomination for the duration of their elected term of office.
