  • b) are appointed at 50% or more time, and
  • c) meet or exceed performance standards.

Application & Process

Staff colleagues can be nominated for their work in one of five general areas of distinction: 1) adaptation, innovation, or efficiency; 2) integrity, accountability, or trust; 3) performance or engagement; 4) kindness or culture; 5) collaboration or support.
