The Fleming Awards

Fleming recognizes employee excellence through the annual Fleming Awards program. There are multiple awards available to honour employees who demonstrate excellence in their work.

For 2019, we are pleased to announce the introduction of a new award category – the Colleague Award!  This new award will recognize a Fleming employee who, amongst other qualities, makes the workplace better for other employees and champions Fleming to all industry stakeholders and prospective students.

How do I write a compelling nomination?

In order for your nomination to stand out against the many others we receive, you must explain and include evidence and clear examples of what makes your nominee so exceptional.

Don’t just say your nominee is outstanding – prove it!

  • It’s important to use specific and concrete examples to illustrate how your nominee meets each of the eligibility and award criteria. Provide examples of how your nominee has demonstrated outstanding character and is a deserving candidate for the award.  Feel free to share personal examples of the impact your nominee has had on you and/or others, as examples really help the evaluation committee relate to your nomination.
  • A compelling nomination should also describe as vividly and precisely as possible the difference your nominee’s contribution has made and show why it has been important.
