Employee Recongnition Award Program
The California Department of Aging strongly embraces employee recognition as a tool that creates a positive work environment, provides ongoing feedback, encourages peak performance, and supports the CDA goals and objectives.
To acknowledge exceptional job performance and outstanding contributions, the Department has established the Employee Recognition Award that is open to all represented employees in Bargaining Units 1, 4, 17 and 19.
Criteria for the Employee Recognition Award are: (1) Employee performs above and beyond what is expected; and/or (2) employee performs exceptional work in a difficult area; and/or (3) employee does a great job, but is not in an area or position that normally gets attention or reward. The selection of individuals or groups who are nominated to receive the award are based on, but not limited to the following work qualities: Cooperation; Creativity; Customer Service; Dedication; Dependability; Enthusiasm; Initiative; Leadership; Productivity; Promotion of Team Work; High Quality of Work; and Volunteer efforts.
The Employee Recognition Award Committee consists of one representative each from Bargaining Units 1, 4, 17, and 19 and one employee from supervisory staff. This committee reviews the nominations submitted, debates the merits and qualifications of each candidate and selects the recipient. The award is made four times a year and nominations may be submitted by any CDA employee.
