Joslin Employee Recognition Program

When I worked at Joslin Diabetes Center, they had a program where supervisors could send in their employees' names for recognition when they went above and beyond their daily tasks. The employee received a mug or mouse pad and a $15 dunkin' donuts gift card.

I was asked to complete the daily duties of someone who was on vacation for the week, when I noticed that something didn't seem quite right. When I researched what was happening I found an issue with our daily procedure. I brought the issue to my supervisor for confirmation and he agreed. The procedure was subsequently changed and I was recommended for the employee recognition program.
