Peer to Peer Recognition
Recognition at the Board
Another example of recognizing individuals at the board is provided by Creative Communications. They have recognition cards for every employee with their photographs, that can be used to recognize a co-worker for a great idea or improving a process - or just lending a hand where it's needed. See here for ideas from GCA and Creative Communication of ways to recognize colleagues at the board. The Payroll Department has a formal recognition process with a form to explain why the person is being recognized (and presented with a certificate at a staff meeting.)
Lean Team Spirit Award
- Leaders recognize work groups or whole departments with a pizza lunch or similar meal/snacks
- Provides up to 2 awards per year per department or work group
- Budgeted at approximately $5 per person being recognized
The Spirit award is managed within each department and charged to a department budget. Department leadership approves the Spirit Award, and authorizes use of a department ProCurement Card to purchase the food. A food approval form must be completed and submitted to the appropriate leader for authorization prior to the event.
Creative Communications was the first department to present this new Spirit Award to the entire C2 organization - see the story here.
