Show a staff member your appreciation
The Peer-to-Peer Appreciation Award is an employee-owned program that offers an opportunity for employees to recognize their colleagues’ hard work and dedication to furthering the mission and success of HLS, whether it is through accomplishing tasks, deepening our community, or brightening our day to day. We encourage our employees to nominate their fellow co-workers who make a difference in everyday work life.
For 2021, we have updated the nomination process to encourage an easier path for nominators and honorees. Anyone can nominate a colleague for a Peer-to-Peer Appreciation Award to recognize and celebrate their great work, and they no longer need to be limited to just one category. We hope that this process change encourages more participation and easier recognition for our staff and the great work they do!
There are eight broad categories meant to capture the variety of ways great work is done at HLS, and for which individuals can be recognized through this program. Nominators can select a number of these categories that they feel fit their colleague’s accomplishments, or fill in their own reason.
- Going Above and Beyond
- Building Our Community
- Working Behind the Scenes
- Making it Happen
- Finding Creative Solutions
- Brightening the Day
- Leading the Charge
- Collaborating on a Project
About the Peer-to-Peer Reward Program
In the 2006 employee engagement survey, HLS staff asked for a way to feel more valued for their contributions. In response, a committee of HLS staff volunteers was formed to create a more formal means for acknowledging great work, beginning with a Peer-to-Peer Reward and Recognition Program. In 2021, we changed the name to the Peer to Peer Appreciation Award.
