It is important to be a good teacher or a good administrator or a good leader of a specific class, division, level, domain, function or a subject.
It is more important to be a “good employee” of the whole system, the Orchid Organisation.
Good Employee, in addition to doing a “ good job” also inspires the colleagues, emulates the philosophy of the organization, raises to the occasion, fits in comfortably to the role given by the organization, goes beyond the definitions of one’s given job description and above all stands for a higher cause.
Each domain has a unique core competence for which the member is primarily employed and that becomes the core component for the selection. However soft skills and other special abilities add flesh to the plate. Hence you will find “ look fors” including the above.
All employees need feedback, recognition, acknowledgement in some concrete, visible form that distinguishes the extra ordinary from the ordinary. The intent is to recognize and reward as many good performing employees as possible. The aim is to make sincere, transparent, well -informed, smooth and democratic process to choose the candidates.

TOS Staff award system works under 2 major categories
1. Employee Award
2. Teacher Performance Award
3. Award under Self Nomination Category

1. TOS Employee Award :

The Categories under this are as follows:
I. Administrative category ( those who have mostly administration oriented tasks, teaching may be in the form of PP or skill building but not a core job description )

II. Service staff Category – All full time and part time service staff (includes maushis , mausha and security.)

III. Teaching category - Self-explanatory . The first three are class teachers while the 4th one is for all subjects including languages, computers, LSO, PE etc.

Under this category, 4 awards -
a) Best Employee from Pre-primary
b) Best Employee from Primary
c) Best Employee from Sr. Secondary & Secondary
d) Best Employee from Subject Teachers

All Staff vote for their choice of candidate in all six categories.

In each category, the employee who gets the highest votes will get a certificate and a silver medal. If there is a tie, both members will get the certificate and medal.

In each category, the members who get second highest votes will get a certificate.

In service staff category, there will be two runners up. One from the admin team service staff and the other one from academic team service staff ( maushis attached to classroom ). For voting the list will remain same. While counting for the runner up position candidate from each category will be selected. However the Winner of the Employee Award will be only one.
