| October 27, 2011

Did you know the Employee Spotlight Award is awarded to two Webster University staff members each month?

You can nominate a deserving coworker through this form. To answer frequently asked questions and better explain how the Employee Spotlight Award works, Human Resources has composed the following FAQ:

What is the Employee Spotlight Award?

The Employee Spotlight Award recognizes staff members for going above and beyond their normal daily duties to assist a co-worker, another department, a student, or anyone else!

How does it work?

A notice will be published in Webster Today to announce that nominations are being accepted. A link is provided to access the Employee Spotlight Award Nomination form. You will need to get your nomination in by the deadline for consideration of the months specified. All nominations not selected as the Employee Spotlight winner and nominations received after the deadline will be considered for the next quarter.

 I have submitted a nomination [many times] however; my nominee was never selected?

When reviewing the nominations received, a good story trumps a popularity contest. We are not looking for: Does a good job, comes to work on time, competent, professional, and completes assignments on time. All of these are what is expected of an employee. What we want is a great story of how this employee went out of their way [above and beyond] their position or duties to assist you, a co-worker, student, or anyone else! Take us into that moment; when you felt this employee went above and beyond for you!

 What does the Employee Spotlight Award Winner receive?

 They have a choice of two different prizes:

A day off with pay


$100 Series EE Savings bond

Do you know someone that went above and beyond for you?

If you do, please nominate them for the Employee Spotlight Award! The only way this works is for you to be the eyes and ears for us! We are not able to be everywhere, so we depend upon you. So, don’t be afraid to nominate that deserving co-worker today!
