The Biosciences Area encourages the use of the Berkeley Lab SPOT Recognition Award program to acknowledge and reward outstanding individual and/or team workplace contributions that occur on a day-to-day basis. Contributions should positively impact the stewardship, quality, cost, service, safety, or resource utilization of an organizational unit, team, or department. The Biosciences Area Leadership has released guidelines for appropriate SPOT award amounts commensurate with various achievements to better streamline and unify our recognition process. Recently, Human Resources has increased the total an individual can receive in one fiscal year to $2,000. Please review the guidelines for this valuable program.
