Nominations are accepted on a monthly basis and we strongly encourage you to recognize your colleagues who provide excellent customer service. The act of nominating someone is a great example of teamwork and collegiality. We encourage everyone to take part in this important program that is open to all employees regardless of part-time/full-time status, union affiliation, shift or work location.
To reach as many people as possible and facilitate the nomination process for employees who may not have convenient access to a computer, we are offering an alternative way to submit a nomination. We have established a call-in number where employees without access to computers can leave a message with the details of the nomination. If addition information is needed, a member of Human Resources will reach out to the nominator. The call-in number can be accessed from a university phone by pressing x2000.
