Prior to 2006, the college had an Employee of the Year Program (see above). The Top Tigers Program (formerly called the Heroes Program) began in 2006 to recognize and reward staff employees for outstanding effort throughout the year and not just at the Faculty/Staff Banquet. In order to be considered as a potential winner, a nomination is submitted either by the individual or anyone wishing to nominate someone. A committee is appointed to choose the winners from among those nominated.
Nomination requirements include the following:

  • How has the employee modeled the Eight Guiding Principles?
  • What were the key accomplishments for the previous year?
  • How many First-Time Guests did the employee recognize?
  • What did the employee do to make the college more fun?
  • What type of community service (internal as well as external) did the employee participate in?
  • What did the employee do to improve their skills during the previous year?
  • What training programs did the employee participate in?

While the Employee of the Year program recognized one individual, the Top Tigers Program was expanded to recognize and reward employees from three distinct groups.

  • Tiger Leaders: Managers who directly supervise other employees
  • Caring Tigers: Maintenance, Grounds and Building Service personnel
  • Tiger Supporters: All other staff members

The actual winners choose their award from a list of possible awards. They also receive a plaque and a small gift at the Service Award Program.

The other component of the Top Tigers Program is ongoing recognition. The Great Talent Flight Team Committee coordinates other activities throughout the year to recognize how employees contribute to the on-going success of Georgetown College.
