How are winners selected for a Kudos Award?

When you submit the nomination form, the Kudos Committee, made up of Mackenzie Health staff and volunteers, will review and score all nominations. We want it to be fair, so we use a blind scoring system where committee members are unable to see the nominee’s name, department or other personal information. Based on the scoring system, nominees will be selected for distinction.

Get started below, fill out the online nomination form, click submit and we will take it from there.
