CSE is a 2016 Charitable Campaign Recognition Award Recipient

Each fall, CSE employees donate their time, energy and money to the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (GCWCC). The funds raised through the GCWCC help to support deserving organizations across the National Capital Region. This year, CSE raised over $312,449.84 for the United Way, the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and Carson Grove Elementary School. Our campaign theme was “Be part of something bigger” and it reflects a growing movement within our organization to connect with our neighbours and our community. At CSE, we encourage employees to help our community and change the world.

Each year the GCWCC recognizes the outstanding contributions of federal employees and retirees to their annual campaign and their communities through the Charitable Campaign Recognition Awards. CSE is proud to announce that we have been recognized for our contribution to the 2016 GCWCC with the following Charitable Campaign Recognition Awards (National Capital Region):

The Chair’s Cup: The Chairs’ Cups recognize excellence in all aspects of employee charitable campaigns. This award is presented to federal organizations or groups of employees that achieved outstanding results demonstrated by excellence in fundraising, broader involvement of employees, and strengthened connections between employees and their communities. The Cup recognizes innovation and creativity in reaching new and lapsed donors, generating involvement in all generations of employees, celebrating volunteerism, and creating deliberate connections between employees, the campaign, and our communities. Chairs’ Cup recipients are teams who work with energy, enthusiasm, and creativity to create an inclusive, employee-based campaign that strengthens the visibility of our communities’ needs and the differences we can and do make.

Next Generation Award: Awarded for CSE’s campaign encouraging youth employees pursue their interests, recipients demonstrate how their departments/agencies successfully reached out to the next generation cohort of employees to interest them and engage them in the annual campaign.

Two of our employees were also recognized with the Unsung Hero award. A successful campaign requires the hard work, dedication and innovation of many employees but some employees go above and beyond to ensure the biggest impact possible.

In 2015, CSE was recognized for the following Charitable Campaign Recognition Awards:

Michael Nurse Award: This recognition award is named after the late Michael Nurse, a well-known and respected public servant, who is remembered for his dedication, creativity, innovation and flexibility. Recipients demonstrated how their campaign team(s) enthusiastically embraced these values and contributed to the success of their annual charitable campaign(s).

My Campaign! Awards (2001-3999 employees) This award is presented for innovation and creativity in customizing and personalizing the campaign experience so that it reflects the passions and compassions of employees. Recognition is given for unique branding and promotion of inclusiveness, employee participation, enthusiasm, and community involvement.

CSE was also recognized with the Pledge Rate Award and the Leadership, Friends, and Stars Award which are awarded based on dollars donated and percentage increases from the previous year.
