MUSC Hollings Cancer Center

HCC Recognition Program

Hollings Cancer Center staff (on the HCC’s university payroll) in all non-faculty categories (i.e. classified, temporary, research grant) are eligible. Non-eligible employees include trainees (residents, fellows, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, etc), faculty, volunteers, and temporary agency employees and MUSC Authority employees.

Nomination Criteria
The HCC encourages nominations based on a thorough description of an employee's outstanding work-related behavior or activities. Examples include: exceptional effort on a project or activity (hours involved/tasks completed); accomplishments that reduced workload or provided cost-savings to the HCC; receipt of a work-related honor; recognition by a patient, colleague or customer; or overall consistent, outstanding customer service/job performance in any mission area (research, education, clinical and or administration).

Nomination Review Committee
A committee of three HCC Senior leadership staff will evaluate submissions bi-monthly to recommend individuals for recognition. The objective of this program is to create a culture in which employees and managers value, respect, and promote achievement of the organization's goals.

Bi-Monthly, an HCC employee will be recognized and will receive $100. Employees are eligible to be recognized once during a twelve month calendar period.

Nominations should be submitted no later than the Thursday preceding the bi-monthly staff meeting. The Nomination Review Committee will review and select the candidate having the greatest impact on achieving organizational excellence goals.
