TOS EMPLOYEE AWARD
TEACHING, ADMINSTRATIVE AND SERVICE STAFF 2013-14
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.
