Valuable to the Core Reintroduced

January 22, 2016

College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Culture and Employee Engagement Committee (CEEC) is excited to announce the ‘Valuable to the Core’ initiative is being reintroduced with a new look. The initiative was created to help employees celebrate peers through recognition, awareness, and the core values of the College. The CEEC is leading a new push to honor employees through the program.

The process to recognize employees is easy. There are ‘Valuable to the Core’ banners hanging in building workrooms and breakrooms. Located under the banner are ‘Recognize a Rock Star’ nomination cards. Employees may recognize a peer by completing a nomination card. There are also envelopes containing stars pertaining to each core value.  Simply find the star that relates to the core value the employee exemplifies and fill it out. Hang the star around the banner to display how awesome those individuals are.

Every quarter, the CEEC will collect stars from all campus locations. The stars will be drawn at random for six employees to have lunch with CWI President Bert Glandon. Moving forward, ‘Valuable to the Core’ nominations will also help select faculty and staff of the month honorees.

Please join us in recognizing the amazing faculty and staff at CWI. Please contact the CEEC at [email protected] with any questions.
