This is a guest post from Facilities and Campus Services:
Facilities and Campus Services is excited to introduce a staff recognition program in January 2017. “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 submitting a narrative about a Facilities & Campus Services staff member who has demonstrated an outstanding service or project, etc. He/she can be nominated for; efficiency, leadership, ethical behavior, customer focus and/or teamwork/workforce. The nominee will be awarded points based on their efforts, and the summation of points will determine the level of award received. The value of the award ranges from $25.00-150.00.
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 that our staff performs can be commended and rewarded, on a continual basis.
Nominations can be submitted at any time on the F&CS website or via e-mail to F&CSelect@nullwfu.edu.
This is a guest post from Human Resources:
The Winston-Salem Mayor’s Council for Persons of Disabilities has named Wake Forest University the Employer of the Year for the second time. Wake Forest received this award in 2012 and is honored once again for improving employment opportunities for persons with disabilities.
“We need more partners like Wake Forest,” wrote Debbie Doub, who nominated the University. Doub works as a Job Coach for the Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools Occupational Course of Study. She partners with Wake Forest and Graylyn through the WFU Satellite Program, helping students gain real-world experience in paid positions.
Doub states that the Wake Forest faculty and staff are “compassionate and dedicated to [ensuring] that these young adults have a successful experience while working under their supervision.” Additionally, she cited the Satellite Program’s high graduation and employment rates.
The Winston-Salem Mayor’s Council for Persons of Disabilities also honored Marc Jones, Manager of Custodial Services, with the “Helping Hands” award. Doub wrote the following about Jones in the nomination: “It constantly amazes me to witness the care and true compassion Mr. Jones shares with his staff. If one person has made a difference in the lives of these young adults, it is Marc Jones.”
October was Disability Employment Awareness Month, which emphasizes the value of an inclusive workforce. Continue to celebrate the contributions of workers with disabilities using #InclusionWorks across social media.
