FM Shines

 

FM Shines is a program that offers impactful methods of recognition for individuals and teams that builds on existing appreciation and recognition efforts. 

It is a year-round program that provides opportunities and resources to appreciate and recognize each other. 

It offers a menu of resources available to help us promote diverse and inclusive appreciation and recognition. When all FM staff make it a priority to appreciate and recognize each other through daily practice, it will become central to our culture.

  • Designed to appreciate and recognize FM staff as individuals, teams or units.
  • Any staff member can participate in the appreciation and recognition process (not just supervisors).
  • Appreciation can be shown to any FM employee, team, or unit. There are no prerequisites.

What Is the Difference Between Appreciation and Recognition?

Appreciation is intended to make an employee feel valued and respected. We appreciate others for actions or efforts that fall within a staff member's or team's core duties.

Recognition provides positive feedback for actions, performances, or results. We recognize others for actions or efforts that go above or beyond the staff member's or team's core duties.
How to Appreciate or Recognize a Staff Member

Appreciation can be shown to any FM employee, team, or unit. There are no prerequisites. Although we are all compensated for executing our job functions, we should appreciate each other’s dedication to executing core job functions. Appreciation does not come with an “award" or "token”. However, through meaningful messages, we can show gratitude for effort and consistency.

We show appreciation for consistency and effort. Our “People Power” comes from the effort and consistency our staff displays every day.

Recognition in FM Shines is based on merit. This includes acts or displays of excellence outside of core job functions, or the extraordinary exemplification of an FM value. Any FM staff member can recognize or appreciate another FM staff member or team. This is not open only to supervisors.
