Inspired by CBS’ Undercover Boss, CBS.com is now accepting nominations for Employee of the Month, a new online contest that will feature one monthly finalist through April, when the winner of the Employee of the Year vote will win a grand prize of $5,000 and be featured on the site.
Family, friends, co-workers, or contestants themselves submit 30-second videos explaining why the potential winner deserves recognition, and users vote for the winner each month. Nominations are currently being accepted for November, through Nov. 10, with voting set for Nov. 11-17.
CBS.com vice president Jeff Clark said:
Undercover Boss has encouraged millions of people to change the way they look at their jobs and the colleagues they work with. This contest gives our users a chance to have someone they admire recognized on a national level and rewarded with a fantastic cash prize.
