Nominations sought for Staff Service Excellence Awards

Oct. 22, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Nominations are now being sought for the fall 2002 semiannual Staff Service Excellence Awards.

Members of the University community are asked to submit nominations for staff members who perform in true service excellence, exceeding normal job expectations. Winners are selected by representatives of the participating employee groups: American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, Local 1668; the Administrative Professional Association, Michigan State Employees Association, the Police Officers Association and the Professional Support Staff Organization.

Up to 12 staff members may be selected to win a semiannual award with a $100 prize. The winners of the 2002-03 semiannual awards will be the only employees eligible to win an annual award, with a $1,000 prize, in spring 2003.

All semiannual nominations will be considered solely on the basis of the nomination content, which should include specific examples of service excellence. Nominations may be submitted through Friday, Oct. 25, to Kitty Scheffers, Department of Human Resources, by memo or e-mail to <hr-ssea@wmich.edu> or by using a nomination form that can be obtained from human resources by calling 269 387-3620. Winners will be announced in November.
