Recognition of Mission Policy is launched

The purpose of the Recognition of Mission policy is to publicly acknowledge individual and team achievements for staff and volunteers who have demonstrated an exceptional example of the Mission and/or the Core Values of Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services, either directly or indirectly to their colleagues, patients, residents or families. Morale is boosted through acknowledging and celebrating individual contributions to the team and Hospice, where people are inspired to learn from the example of others.

Human Dignity – To respect the unique worth of every person.
Compassion – To empathise with others in their discomfort or suffering and strive to understand their experience.
Justice – To act with integrity, honesty, commitment and accountability in everything that we do.
Quality – To strive for excellence in all aspects of our work.
Advocacy – To represent the needs of those who are unable to speak for themselves.

Should you wish to make a nomination, please download the policy attached and complete the nomination form in Appendix One. Recognition of Mission nominations will be published on the intranet and in the Hospice Herald, from these; a Committee will select a winning nomination bi-annually.

The first presentation of awards for the Recognition of Mission will be at the staff Christmas lunch on 11th December 2014.
