Employee Recognition Program – Monument Award Program nominations are open!

Nominate someone for the Monument Awards Program (MAP) before December 8!

Employees may be nominated for several types of awards. For this year, there are three awards for which to nominate someone. The Going the Extra Mile (G.E.M.) award (employee badging) is available anytime in Cornerstone. Any employee may badge another employee with one of our custom G.E.M. badges in the Cornerstone system on the Universal Profile.

Two other award categories have separate nomination forms and must be submitted based on specific criteria within the nomination period during the fall or the spring. Living the Values is an individual award designed to recognize behaviors demonstrated by the College values. It is open to nominations for both full and part-time employees with acceptable performance. The nominations for Living the Values must come from a leader within the college.

The San Jacinto College Monument Award is a recognition awarded for up to ten (10) teams per year for sustained, exceptional performance above and beyond performance expectations for the completion of deliverables identified in the annual priorities or strategic goals. Eligibility is open to full and part-time employees with acceptable performance. This award may be nominated by a leader and must be approved by the Strategic Leadership Team member. Approved nominations are reviewed by the Strategic Leadership Team, who may choose to award five (5) teams in the fall and five (5) teams in the spring.

A recognition website has been setup with additional information about each of the various awards. When the nomination period is open, links are available to complete the online nomination forms in SOS. For the Living the Values awards, the nomination form will route to the nominee’s leader or next level leader to review and confirm eligibility before routing to Human Resources. Nominations for the Monument Award are by team. Human Resources will collect these nominations and present to the Strategic Leadership Team for final selection of the recipients.

The fall nomination period is currently open and will run through December 8. Please take the time to nominate your employees for the awards this year. Let’s make the Monument Awards Program a success!
