SHP Stars / U Rock

SHP Employee Recognition

Do you know a fellow SHP employee or team of employees who have done an outstanding job; who exemplify the vision and values of our institution? How about an employee who has made an outstanding contribution to the community, independently or through their work with other organizations? Do you know someone who has provided significant service to another individual?

You can nominate that deserving employee, or team of employees, through the U Rock employee recognition program. The purpose of the program is to say "thank you," "well done," "we value you as an employee." It is a process to express our appreciation for the contributions of each other. Examples of reasons to say thank you include; fixing a computer glitch in a timely manner, assisting with a project, performing job duties in a friendly and courteous manner, etc.

Recognize outstanding performance by emailing Tina-Marie Means at

Two names are chosen from all SHP STARS nominations every two months. Winners also receive a gift card as a token of appreciation for their exemplary work!
