Facilities/Campus Services launches staff recognition program

This a guest post from Facilities and Campus Services:

Facilities and Campus Services will launch its newly-created staff recognition program on February 13. “F&CS-elect” will recognize staff for demonstrating one or more of five values integral to the operations of the department.

The nomination process begins with a WFU colleague (faculty, staff or student) submitting a narrative about a Facilities & Campus Services staff member who has demonstrated an outstanding service or project, etc. The employee can be nominated for: efficiency, leadership, ethical behavior, customer focus, and/or teamwork. Points are awarded based on efforts/skills, and the summation of points will determine the level of award received.

The Facilities & Campus Services staff work diligently across the campus community to create, maintain, and service the campus for our faculty, staff, and students. Often their work is accomplished behind the scenes with very little impact to anyone’s day. This program encourages an on-going culture of recognition so that the critical work our staff performs can be commended and rewarded, on a continual basis.

Nominations can be submitted at any time on the F&CS website http://facilities.wfu.edu/

Questions about the process may be directed to Janice Schuyler at schuyljc@nullwfu.edu or ext. 5679.
