Even in a workplace full of remarkable people, some just stand out. They're the ones who go above and beyond and accomplish impressive results. The Fraser Health values—respect, caring and trust—are part of who they are on a personal and professional basis, and it shows in their exemplary commitment to the people they serve. These are the workplace leaders we look up to, no matter what their role. And now we want to recognize those who go above and beyond. It's an honour to which everyone can aspire.

What is Above and Beyond?

Above and Beyond, an annual event, is our special way of celebrating the outstanding achievements of Fraser Health employees, physicians and volunteers. Successful nominees will be honoured at a special Directors' Forum.

Who is eligible?

Fraser Health employees, physicians and volunteers are eligible. Nominations can be for an individual or a team.

Who can nominate?

Fraser Health employees, physicians, volunteers, patients, external suppliers, contractors and other external groups can nominate an individual or a team. Nominators must identify themselves.

What is the nomination process?

A broad-based selection committee will determine award recipients from the nominations received. The committee includes representation from across Fraser Health and is made up of members of the executive team, physicians, health services administrators (directors, managers), volunteer resources manager, and frontline employees.

Complete and submit a nomination form to nominate someone exceptional.

The Above and Beyond Awards honour individuals or teams who have clearly demonstrated behaviours or produced results (that go above and beyond the call of duty).  Consideration will be given to initiatives that occurred within the last two calendar years.
