CEO Stars Nomination Process

CEO  STAR Program 

The CEO Staff Appreciation and Recognition (STAR) program was developed to identify and acknowledge employees for exceptional performance or significant contributions related to individual, departmental, divisional, or organizational goals and objectives. As a peer-to-peer recognition platform, the CEO STAR program allows staff to nominate a peer for exceptional work that aligns with the CEO values.

What is a CEO  STAR?

A CEO STAR is an employee who:

Stands out among their peers. A STAR is someone who works as a

Team, who understands the

Agency’s mission and always goes above and beyond.  A STAR is someone who is

Reliable, hard working and responsible.

Under the STAR program, co-workers and managers may nominate any staff whom they see as going above and beyond the typical expectations of a staff member in their position.

Individuals may be recognized for demonstrating exceptional embodiment of one of CEO’s organizational values:

  • Helping Others
  • Accountability
  • Innovation
  • Respect
  • Teamwork
