Team Spirit Award 2008


One very nice detail of American workplace culture, something I haven't seen in over 27 years of employment in Germany, is the recognition that you get for working hard.

Today Indiana Tech celebrated the annual employee awards ceremony, where individuals and teams are honored for their outstanding contributions to the success of our institution.

The surprise at the very end of this ceremony was this year's winner of our *Team Spirit Award* - the Information Technology department. We each received a nice plaque and a $100 gift certificate for Eddie Merlot's - a fancy local restaurant.



And curios as a HR manager can be ;-))) I wonder how that team spirit is measured/ evaluated ...... employee questionnaire where each member of staff rates the team spirit in his/ her department? Curious to know more about.

And have a nice dinner with your award! ;-))

Thanks Isabelle :-))

there is no *formal* procedure to determine who receives one of the annual employee awards.
No questionnaire, no rating systems, no scores to reach.

As far as I know, the award committee just meets and talks about things they noticed during the past year - and who deserves an award, and why.
