National Public Service Week 2021 - Recognition and Resilience

Kudos for Colleagues - Celebrating Public Service Excellence

French to follow.

This is a forum where we celebrate our colleagues and our wins at work - big and small, life-changing and day-changing, where we focus on the big picture but also on the smaller-scale successes that drive us. Have an Extraordinary Act of Public Service to share? Want to recognize a colleague for something minor or major? Please share the things, the people, and the projects you are proud of here. 

Want to let someone know you posted, or celebrate their achievement on social media? Click the social media buttons in the upper right-hand corner of your post and share away, on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or by email!

Guidelines for posting;

1) Remember not to include any personal information or health information about the individuals you're recognizing.

2) Try and give specific examples of what the person did, but if you want to thank them just for being awesome, that's okay too!

3) Keep in mind that while this is a private forum which is internal to government, it can be accessed from outside government and does not require a government email address to log on.

4) Items posted on this board should be considered public, as they can be shared to social media. Remember the social media policy when posting. 

Félicitons nos collègues – Soulignons l’excellence de la fonction publique

Nous vous invitons à participer à un forum où nous célébrons nos collègues et nos victoires au travail – petites et grandes, marquantes pour la vie, inspirantes au quotidien – et où nous nous attachons non seulement à nos réalisations d’ensemble mais aussi aux succès à petite échelle qui nous animent. Vous voulez faire connaître un service public extraordinaire? Vous souhaitez souligner une grande ou petite chose qu’un collège a accomplie? Nous vous donnons l’occasion de parler ici de choses, de gens et de projets pour lesquels vous ressentez de la fierté.

Vous voulez faire savoir à quelqu’un que vous avez affiché ou souligné ses réalisations sur les réseaux sociaux? Cliquez sur les icônes des réseaux sociaux dans le coin supérieur droit de votre publication et partagez celle-ci sur Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn ou par courriel!

Lignes directrices sur les publications

1) N’oubliez pas que vous ne devez pas inclure de renseignements personnels ou de renseignements médicaux concernant les personnes dont vous reconnaissez la contribution.

2) Essayez de donner des exemples précis de ce que la personne a accompli; toutefois, si vous voulez simplement la remercier parce qu’elle est géniale, c’est bien aussi!

3) Rappelez-vous qu’il s’agit d’un forum privé qui est utilisé en interne au gouvernement, mais qu’une personne de l’extérieur du gouvernement peut y avoir accès sans utiliser une adresse électronique gouvernementale.

4) Les éléments publiés sur ce forum doivent être considérés comme publics, car ils peuvent être partagés sur les réseaux sociaux. N’oubliez pas de respecter la politique des médias sociaux (en anglais seulement) lorsque vous publiez des messages.

Thank you for sharing your story with us. We hope that recognizing a colleague helped you feel amazing!

  • Innovators Network? More like the ENGAGEMENT Network, am I right?

    over 1 year ago

    The Innovators Network had 100% member engagement over the last 90 days! That means each and every of the network's 350+ members have interacted with each other in some manner over the last 3 months. That might have been making a post, commenting on one, giving a reaction or reading the content on Teams.

    The Innovators Network is a completely voluntary employee network made up of public servants who are passionate about or want to learn more about Innovation and Transformation in Government. Every post by someone asking a question, or seeking help in some way is met by a... Continue reading

  • Accessibility Champions at the Manitoba Accessibility Office

    by Yutta Fricke, almost 2 years ago

    Kudos to Erika Vas, Emily Walker, Colleen Watters and Tracy MacMillan - the team that works with me at the Manitoba Accessibility Office to support accessibility, as required by law and by nearly one in four Manitobans served by our government. In the last year, that has meant learning how to host online meetings and webinars that include ASL, captioning, phone or on-line participation, and a record for folks who need a review or missed the session. The team also provided a pandemic lens to regulations that include: allowing support people and service animals, ensuring communication that meets clients' needs... Continue reading

  • Real Estate Services Branch - Resilient, Dedicated Team

    by SBurton, almost 2 years ago

    The team at Real Estate Services Branch has gone above and beyond to work together in our transition from an Operating Agency, to a Branch within a Division. Staff have encountered numerous changes with grit and determination. Our acting Director has been a pillar of strength when we've needed it the most, and she continues to power on and "get the job done", in turn motivating us all to do the same.

    Thank you RESB, it is an honor to work with all of you.
