HCC Recognition Program
Hollings Cancer Center Employee Recognition Program
The Hollings Cancer Center (HCC) mission is to reduce the cancer burden in South Carolina through the highest quality patient care, innovative research, outstanding professional education and statewide cancer prevention programs with a focus on reaching underserved populations. It is important to recognize and value the outstanding contributions of staff in support of our mission.
Nomination Selection Review Committee
With these tenets in mind, a program to recognize outstanding contributions by our employees has been established. A committee of three faculty members representing members that contribute to the HCC will evaluate submissions monthly and annually 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.
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).
For the monthly recognitions, Hollings Cancer Center staffs (on the HCC’s university payroll only) 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, and temporary agency employees and employees not on the HCC university payroll. The annual recognition, effective 12/2011, will be extended to all staff (non-faculty) who are associated with the HCC regardless of their primary affiliation (department, hospital, UMA, etc).
Monthly, one of the HCC university-based outstanding employees will be recognized as Employee of the Month and will receive a choice of one month’s free parking at 65 Gadsden St. or a $100 gift card. An employee is eligible to be recognized once during a twelve month period commencing 9/01/2010.
Employee of the Year will be selected from the monthly winners and from additional internal nominations and will receive a $500 gift card.
Nomination Review Procedures and Selection
Nominations should be submitted by the fifteenth of each month. The Recognition Committee will collect, review, and select the candidate having the greatest impact on achieving organizational excellence goals. A separate call will be announced for the annual employee of the year, and may require more detail.
