There's a Whole New Spot Award Program on the Horizon

In response to Pause input, the SLAC leadership team has been working on ways to give our employees immediate recognition and appreciation for exceptional work.

Together, SLAC management and the Human Resources department have come up with a revised Spot Award program that provides a simple and expedient way to immediately recognize and reward employees for performance, behavior or accomplishments that contribute to achieving the vision, mission and values at SLAC. Managers and supervisors throughout the lab will be awarding Spot Awards redeemable for $25 gift cards to Target, the Stanford Bookstore or Cinemark Movie Theatre. Managers can award up to 2 gift cards at one time.

Any SLAC employee below the level of associate lab director is eligible to receive an award in one of five categories: Safety & Security, Environmental Stewardship, Process Improvement, Teamwork, Good Citizenship or Extraordinary Effort. Staff members are encouraged to recommend peers for Spot Awards through their supervisors. Supervisors and managers may recognize individuals or groups across organizational lines.

For more details and supervisor instructions for giving Spot Awards, see the Spot Award page (SLAC internal).

Keep an eye on SLAC Today for announcements of Spot award winners in the New Year.

We encourage you all to keep up the good work and look for a Spot Award in your future!
