Every Day Star Award Program Recognizes VTH Employees for Hard Work and Compassionate Care
With the Every Day Star Award Program, Purdue Veterinary Medicine faculty and staff have a new way to recognize Veterinary Teaching Hospital employees for a job well done. Developed and administered by the Veterinary Teaching Hospital administrative office, the award program is designed to promote internal recognition for hard work, dedication, and professionalism.
PVM faculty and staff who wish to recognize a VTH employee can fill out this form (also linked on the Intranet under “Quick Links” and in the bi-weekly VTH Doses newsletter). A copy of the award document is sent not only to the employee, but also to the employee’s direct supervisor.
“Our goal with this program is to promote a positive culture of recognition in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital allowing anyone the opportunity to recognize individuals within the hospital. Additionally, it will ensure managers are aware of the positive feedback within their team,” said Veterinary Teaching Hospital Director Duncan Hockley. “We are already very pleased with the feedback and the utilization of this program. Congratulations to our awardees for going out of their way to help their colleagues, patients, and clients.”
Every Day Star Award winners are listed in VTH Doses, the bi-weekly internal newsletter for hospital employees. The award program began this summer and has already been adopted as a way of recognizing coworkers at the VTH. The initial awardees have been recognized for friendliness, attention to detail, thoughtfulness with challenging clients, mentorship, and more. Know someone that deserves a big thank you? Send them an Every Day Star Award!
