Sieda Community Action presented four staff members at the Sieda All-Staff meeting on November 16th with the Sargent Shriver excellence of service award.
Sargent Shriver Awards are a staff-centered awards process for Sieda employees. The awards recognize positive behaviors that support the agency’s mission, vision, and values. For the reason of helping create a culture of mutual respect and recognition for employees at all levels. There are two separate award categories; the employee of the year award and supervisor of the year award.
Therefore, the employee of the year award honors three individual employees who have no staff reporting to them. This could be, for example, teachers, administrative assistants, home visitation specialists, or program specialist. Sieda honors one supervisor with the supervisor award. They must have one or more staff that reports to them and is in a leadership position within the organization.
Candidates for both the employee and supervisor award are nominated by any member of the agency. Then selected by a committee of employees.
