Awarding Great People

The School of Medicine depends on our dedicated, skilled and hardworking staff to support our status as world class institution.  Quarterly Great People awards are designed to acknowledge excellence by recognizing the dedication and commitment of both SOM staff and non-faculty academic staff.

Take the time to nominate a co-worker or work group whose commitment to employee engagement can be characterized by one or more of the following attributes:

  • Contributes to activities, programs or events resulting in tangible added value.
  • Serves as a role model for teamwork and customer service.
  • Makes the school or department a better place to work by demonstrating a positive, helpful attitude, and by communicating and working cooperatively with others.
  • Shows solid and consistent devotion to the job and work group.
  • Inspires others to excel.

Nominations will be reviewed, and four Great People will be selected for recognition. 

Recipients of the Great People Award receive special recognition from Dean Talmadge King and are rewarded with a choice of bear hugs award cards for individuals and modest recognition events for team awards.
