Spontaneous and Peer/Manager Recognition
The Spontaneous Recognition program at the UConn Health seeks
to applaud achievements, and create a culture of recognition in
our workplace. This approach provides recognition at any time
for demonstration of behaviors and values of the organization,
contributions to the goals and objectives of the organization or
department and to acknowledge individual or team
accomplishments. This form of recognition creates positive
communication, personal interaction and meaningful recognition
throughout the organization.
