Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that our Employee Picnic and Recognition Award will take place on Wednesday, May 31, 2017!

The Employee Recognition Award provides us with the opportunity to recognize the noteworthy contributions of our dedicated and talented staff.  Once again, we invite you to participate in the process of identifying colleagues who are doing exceptional work. Extraordinary contributions to the College may have been made through outstanding job performance, extraordinary committee service, exemplary collaboration, exceptional customer service, active participation in our efforts to create a more diverse and inclusive campus community, or other activities above and beyond the employee’s job responsibilities.

Non-faculty employees, including casuals, who have completed a minimum of one (1) year of service by the time of the nomination and who are active at the time of the recognition are eligible. All staff, faculty, and students are invited to submit nominations.  Recipients from the past two years (2016 and 2015) are ineligible for this year’s award.   As usual, the Recognition Committee will conduct the review process in a confidential manner in order to protect its integrity. Since nominations does not guarantee selection for recognition, you should consider keeping your nominations confidential.

Nominations can be submitted by mail, email or electronically at the Nomination Form page.  Paper nomination forms will be available at the Human Resources Office and in other central locations around campus (Dining Services, Custodial Services and Rental Housing). Completed paper forms must be sent to the Office of Human Resources in a sealed envelope or placed in the specially marked box at the Human Resources Office. All nominations must be received by Friday, April 7, 2017. Nominations received after this date cannot be considered.  Awardees will be recognized during the Employee Picnic on Wednesday, May 31, 2017.

For additional information, please visit the Employee Recognition Event Procedure page or contact the Office of Human Resources at x2372.   Please mark your calendars for this important community celebration.  We look forward to celebrating with you!
