#1

Not real ones that you put on LinkedIn.com but those bullshit feel good ones like Employee Of The Month. You won any?

I won “King Of The Lunchtime Munchers” back in IBM when my housemate worked in the training department. I was pretty overweight at the time. The certificate was laminated and everything.


#2

I like the fact that someone clicked the linkedin.com link.

“What internet website is that?”


#3

Maybe thought you’d linked to an actual award that you’d won?

Edit: it wasn’t me btw


#4

Most likely to become homecoming Queen


#5

The only award I get from my workplace is the satisfaction of a job well done, in pursuit of the company’s goals and in line with the company values.


#6

Also the sacks of cash.


#7

Clicking this in the hope it becomes one of DiS’s most clicked links.


#8

I’m struggling to believe this. Where were you working when you received this award?


#9

Junior High


#10

We have a yearly data analysis competition, I won it in the first year, they alluded to there being some kind of prize but there wasn’t so I’ve never defended my title since


#11

There are about a dozen employee of the quarter type awards, the prize for which is getting served lunch by the directors of the company. It looks profoundly awkward for all involved and I hope never to win.


#12

Steved do you know who Steves is and do you feel threatened by his name?


#13

been nominated again for the company wide best team award. New team of 3 this time. Been rejected previous 2 years. Lot of the previous team (was bigger team, like 8+) took it very badly.
Kind of wish my managers would stop doing it,I don’t want it and don’t need the indignity of rejection I never asked for


#14

No and no.


#15

We have these things they call GEMs. It stands for Going the Extra Mile. I’ve had three so far. The last one was when a colleague nominated me after she sent ten adverts through but had the dimensions all the wrong way around. In two and a half hours, on the day of the deadline, I changed them all with nothing wrong. It means an extra £100 in my pay at the end of the month too.


#16

As discussed elsewhere, AMF Bowling Ashford employee of the month for so many consecutive months that they removed the democratic vote to ensure other winners. Galling as it came with a £20 HMV voucher each time.
