When we have a specific recognition date/week/month example:"Physical Rehab Day" "Nurses Week" "Breast Cancer Awareness Month" "GI Nurses Day" etc. we like to honor our employees by taking group photos and posting about it on our social media outlets.
After three years or doing this we are learning there are so many recognition days in our health system that we miss or not aware of…ultimately leaving departments upset for not being recognized.
My idea is to make a submission form for department directors to submit their department recognition days via this questionnaire. This would hopefully do several things:
1. Make the department directors responsible for letting us (the marketing dept) know about the recognition day so we can organize group photos/social media content accordingly.
2. Not to leave anyone out.
Has anyone else experienced this same issue? I'd love some feedback on what has worked for you or what things you may have implemented to help cover the bases of dept. being recognized.
