Each year United Methodist Homes provides a “Values in Action” award in recognition of employees who have demonstrated extraordinary behavior that exemplifies the organization’s core values of Respect, Spirituality, Excellence, Collaboration, and Stewardship. All employees are eligible to be nominated or to nominate any of their team members.
Staff are encouraged to nominate their co-workers who demonstrate any or all of the UMH core values. One individual from each of our communities is chosen to receive the award, which is presented at our annual Employee Recognition Celebration dinner. Award winners are recognized with a monetary award and a trophy and praised by their supervisors for their outstanding character and service. Congratulations to our winners!
Our Values in Action Award is presented to a staff member who exemplifies the following criteria:
We hold each individual in high esteem and treat all with dignity and respect.
We view each individual as a whole person and administer to spiritual concerns as well as physical needs.
We collaborate with staff, medical practitioners and community members in order to incorporate the creativity of all.
We are responsible for preserving those who have come before us and we are responsible to those who will come after us.
We improve quality by empowering our associates to continually improve our outcomes of service. We encourage innovation by seeking, listening and responding to new ideas.
