Tips for Employee of the Month programs:

Define your nomination criteria and process: Define the standards for receiving this recognition. A clear and detailed description will help employees feel the program is unbiased and fair.

Nominations from upper management can be seen as a negative, as it creates an unhealthy competition between peers.

To eliminate the negative feelings of peer competition, make it easy for all non-management employees to submit nominations for review, (allow self-nominations too). Provide a form for this purpose. Include guidelines and a deadline for nominations each month.

Some popular Nomination criteria includes:

  • Dependability
  • Innovation
  • Above and beyond activities
  • Assistance to peers
  • Excellent performance
  • Creating a pleasant work environment
  • Increased productivity
  • Highest ratings from Customer Service

Many Employee of the Month programs will fail if this step is missed!

Publicize your new Employee-of-the-Month Program: Announce the program and its awards. Explain the nomination criteria and the nomination process at a company meeting, and in your company newsletter if available. It's key that all employees understand what's needed to get nominated so they could work toward your nomination criteria. Then build excitement for the program. Be sure to also publicize your monthly winners!
