YC Way Award

All YC employees—faculty, staff, and administration—are eligible to be nominated for a YC Way Award. Anyone can nominate someone: peer-to-peer, supervisor-to-employee, and employee-to-supervisor.

The first YC Way Awards will be given to the three recipients at Spring Convocation on January 8, 2020.

Relationship Excellence keeps people feeling connected to the organization as a valued contributor and makes learning and service excellence possible.

Service Excellence is a significant advantage and performance differentiator for organizations.

Learning Excellence moves beyond a set of principles and outcomes –it is a set of beliefs at the core, that determine an organization's way of thinking and being and how that shapes the learning environment and what happens there.
