Employee Recognition - Phoenix Feather
Phoenix Feather Recognition Program
The Phoenix Feather Recognition Program is a peer-to-peer program that provides faculty and staff a tool to recognize the exemplary work performance and achievement of one another.
This program is not meant to replace the faculty evaluation process or the staff performance evaluation process. However, it is meant to promote and recognize efforts that demonstrate a culture of cooperation, continuous improvement and thankfulness to those who consistently strive to improve the workplace.
Tied to our Mission and Values, the Phoenix Feather Recognition Program is a simple and easy way to acknowledge how important the actions of faculty and staff positively influence the student experience, day in and day out, at Wilson College.
Nominate a Peer
Nominating a peer for a job well done is super easy through an intuitive online nomination form. Simply go to the online nomination form. Tell us how great your peer is, making sure to tie their actions back to our Values. Hit submit. And, that’s it!
Once the nomination form is submitted, it will automatically route to the Phoenix Feather Ambassadors (peer group of faculty and staff) for review. The ambassadors will review nominations on a monthly basis, ensuring they adhere to the intent of the program then provide approval. Once approved, the nomination will be sent to the recipient and their immediate supervisor. If the nomination is not approved, the ambassadors will provide brief, constructive feedback to the nominator.
What are the perks of winning a Phoenix Feather?
Names of all Phoenix Feather recipients will be published monthly online and shared via Connection, the internal digital newsletter for faculty and staff.
Annually, all approved nominations will be placed into a random drawing for a larger recognition award to be announced at the service award event traditionally held in December of each year.
