Rewards & Recognition

The Business Affairs Division values service, innovation and conservation. Our Rewards and Recognition Program gives Business Affairs' employees a chance to nominate co-workers for recognition at the annual division-wide gathering.

The award for Outstanding Business Affairs Performance recognizes employees or teams who have excelled in the performance of their duties, promoted teamwork, and inspired excellence in others. Their performance throughout the year consistently reflects the values of our division:

• We are inclusive, cooperative, and collaborative.
• We work together for the good of the whole.
• We work in an open and accountable manner.
• We are innovative.

Employees may be nominated by anyone in the Business Affairs Division. Employees who have won a Business Affairs Award in the previous year will not be selected for an award the current year (Outstanding Service Awards winners are eligible if nominated for a new reason).

Some Examples of Outstanding Performance are:

• An employee or team consistently responding to the needs of students, faculty, staff and campus visitors with an unusually high quality of service, in a manner which benefits the University.
• An employee or team regularly working toward reducing the University’s carbon footprint by reducing waste, increasing recycling, etc.
• An employee or team accomplishing a formidable task and/or taking on substantial new challenges.
• An employee or team whose innovative idea reduces cost or improves a process.

The names of all nominees and nominators will be entered into a prize drawing.
