Nominees will be judged on a point system.  Each criteria standard has a point value (as denoted above).  Any employee can nominate a co-worker simply by filling out and submitting a nomination form.  Customers may also fill out and submit a nomination form.


Nominators should keep in mind the judging criteria and write the nomination accordingly.  When asked why a co-worker is deserving of the award, elaborate on your response; give specific examples; using your descriptions, draw a picture for the judges of the perfect employee.  Attempt to reveal in words how your co-worker met each of the criteria.


Once a month, Employee of the Month Selection Sub-Committee will meet to review all of the nomination submissions.  Each nomination will be graded according to the previously-stated criteria and the points tallied to determine the nominee’s overall score.  The highest scoring nominee will be considered for the award.  Once this is determined, verify with the candidate’s supervisor that the employee is not under any disciplinary action that would cause him or her to be ineligible for the award.


Once the selection has been finalized, the Team will present the winner in a celebration of song and parade as we always have, presenting the winner with a certificate signed by the Manager or Senior from company.


The names of each month’s recipient will then have a name plate done and it will be placed on the plaque on the wall across the prominent area. As names rotate off the plaque they will be given to the recipient as an additional keepsake.


You can add more criteria for Employee of the month.
