compliment a colleague

It’s important to stay connected while working from home. One way you can stay connected is by recognizing your colleagues for the great work they’re doing in spite of the challenges posed by the Coronavirus crisis. Compliment a Colleague is an online recognition program, sponsored by the Department of Human Resources, that provides you the opportunity to anonymously recognize a fellow colleague or department with a virtual pat on the back, a thank you or a simple “job well-done” message.

To recognize a colleague or department, please complete the form located on this page. Information may be edited for clarity and consistency. Please be aware that it may take anywhere between 24-48 hours for your compliment to appear.
