Senior management within the Hospice understand the importance of rewarding employees for the vital work that they do each day. Their Greatix system allows any employee to nominate a colleague for going above and beyond the requirements of the role. It's a simple form completed electronically that is then sent to the executive team, a response is always provided to both the individual submitting the nomination and the individual it is about. These feed into nominations to the 'Dougie Awards' where individuals are recognised for excellence.
