Rewards and Recognition
In an effort to convey that all staff efforts and contributions are valued, CGCC recognizes and rewards employees by celebrating Staff Milestone Recognition, annual Faculty Excellence Award and Staff Excellence Award, and staff birthday appreciation. It is CGCC's objective to promote the concept that our employees are truly our most valuable resource and will be treated as such.
Columbia Gorge Community College (CGCC) strives to implement processes that lead to the retention and job satisfaction of our staff. In 2010 CGCC sought to create a Rewards and Recognition Committee in response to survey results obtained from our annual staff survey.
This committee developed the following mission: “In order to help achieve Columbia Gorge Community College’s goal of fostering a supportive working and learning environment, the Rewards and Recognition Committee seeks to develop a program that boosts employee morale by showing all employees their efforts are valued and promoting communication that encourages a sense of community.”
