Want to send a Kudos to a co-worker?

Please consider nominating a co-worker for a Tiger or Spot award to say job well done and/or thank you, instead of sending a kudos. Tiger & Spot awards were set up as a peer recognition program within Facilities, and while they are similar to kudos, they also include a monetary award. We encourage you to nominate co-workers for a Tiger or Spot award when they've done something extra ordinary!
