Finest of the Flock

Acknowledging Exceptional Efforts 

The Staff Advisory Council (SAC) Finest of the Flock (FOTF) is an award that acknowledges staff members (A&P and SP) for exhibiting exceptional efforts that reflect the values and mission of Florida Gulf Coast University. Finest of the Flock provides a method for informal peer-to-peer acknowledgment of achievements by staff and a means for publicly announcing such accomplishments to the broader University community.

Requirements and Nominations

Finest of the Flock recognizes employees who have contributed to the benefit of FGCU, student(s), co-worker(s), guest(s), the community, and other volunteer or service organizations. The award specifically targets the areas of service, innovation, and collaboration. The activity or activities for which the staff member is being recognized should demonstrate excellence or exceed the employee's normal job responsibilities to the best of the nominator’s knowledge. Nominators can be anyone who interacts with the employee; whether employee, student, vendor, or community member. Official rules

SAC is committed to Finest of the Flock as a peer-to-peer recognition program intended to be a reflection of the appreciation from a peer for an action, accomplishment, service, innovation, or other special event deserving of praise. The Finest of the Flock award is not related to an employee’s performance evaluation and may not be reflective of an employee’s overall performance. Nomination periods run from the 15th to the 15th each month and nominees are recognized at the latter month’s SAC meeting. For example, all nominations received from January 15th to February 15th will be recognized at the February SAC meeting.
