The Tree of Appreciation program nomination process is simple. Associates within the People and Culture Directorate fill out a PDF form and include a short recognition citation for the nominee. Once complete, the nominator clicks submit on the form and the award is sent for approval. Nominees are recognized at the monthly People and Culture staff meeting with their citation and a leaf to put on the Appreciation Tree in the B224S conference room in Bldg. 20. They also receive a smaller leaf to place at their desk for display. To date, 13 leaves have been placed on the People and Culture Directorate Tree of Appreciation.
