Tips for Writing a Successful Touchstone Nomination

  • Carefully review the eligibility requirements for a Touchstone. Eligible nominees work full-time (30 or more hours per week) and have been employed and in good standing with the company for a minimum of 6 months. Clinical award recipients must spend most of their time (51% or more) providing direct patient care.
  • Successful nominations include specific performance related details that make the case for the nominee’s achievement. Include tangible qualitative or quantitative performance data if possible. Examples include, but are not limited to, positive feedback from a patient or referral source, customer satisfaction ratings, clinical outcomes measurement, the quality of clinical documentation, expense reduction or revenue impact, employee turnover, etc…
  • Successful nominations describe significant achievements that are recognized as going above and beyond the nominee’s normal job. Include specific examples or detailed accomplishments that illustrate your nominee’s positive impact and contribution to Kindred at Home.
  • Successful nominations often include examples that show patterns of achievement over time.
  • Avoid sweeping generalities; (i.e. “He’s a hard worker” or “She goes above and beyond her duties”.)
  • Consider the nominee’s award history. Current recipients of the Silver Touchstone coin have held their Copper award for a year. In general, an individual may not receive a Touchstone more than once for the same/similar activities.
  • Watch the story of Kindred at Home’s first Silver Touchstone award winner.
