PURPOSE

The Employee of the Year Award Program recognizes and rewards exemplary performance by Saddleback College employees based both on performance of their responsibilities as outlined in their position description and on their specific contributions to the mission, goals, values, and strategic plan of the College.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

All permanent full-time and part-time Saddleback College Classified Staff are eligible.

A recipient of the Employee of the Year award is eligible to apply or be nominated again in three years after receiving an award. Nominees are not eligible to serve on the selection committee during the year of their own nomination unless they agree to voluntarily withdraw their nomination.

WHEN WILL THE AWARD(S) BE GIVEN?

The Employee of the Year award will be given annually and announced on or near spring break typically during "Classified Day."

WHO MAY NOMINATE?

Staff may be nominated by other SOCCCD employees, the community, students and/or fellow staff and/or faculty members, or by self-nomination.

WHAT DOES THE EOY RECIPIENT RECEIVE?

The recipient of the Employee of the Year award will receive a minimum $250 cash from Foundation funds, a free VIP one-year parking pass, a PIO news release recognizing Employee of the Year, and a desk award equal to that of other award recipients on campus. Additionally, the recipient's name will be memorialized with past Employee of the Year's on a plaque in the Administration building.

WHAT IS THE NOMINATION PROCESS?

A link to the Nomination form will be sent permanent employees via email by the beginning of the 1st week of February and will be available online at the Classified Senate website - www.saddleback.edu/csenate/. Other materials used to support the employee's nomination: individual accomplishments, abilities and values should match the College's vision, mission, values, and strategic plan. The College's strategic plan can be found on the Planning and Research website – www.saddleback.edu/opra/sp/.

WHEN IS THE DEADLINE FOR NOMINATIONS?

The deadline for nominations is March 1. Incomplete nomination forms and/or forms received after the deadline will not be eligible for review.

WHO WILL REVIEW THE NOMINATIONS?

The Employee Award Selection Taskforce will be a group with annual appointments made up of three (3) to five (5) Saddleback employees as ratified by the entire Classified Senate. The committee will include:

  • Previous Employee of the Year award recipient
  • Minimum of one part-time staff member
  • Classified Staff member
  • Classified Staff member
  • Classified Staff member
  • 1st Vice President of Classified Senate will be the non-scoring chair of the committee.

The committee will submit the EOY winner to the College President based on scores. In the case of a tie, two (2) recipients can be selected as winners if the consensus of the committee makes the recommendation.

PLEASE NOTE: Multiple nominations will be accepted into the scoring process. For example, multiple nominations for one individual will be reviewed and then an average final score will submitted to the committee chair. The committee will be formed and hold an orientation meeting at the end of February, schedule permitting.
