Staff Service Excellence Award nominations sought

Feb. 9, 2000

KALAMAZOO -- We all know them, those outstanding WMU employees whose contributions often go unrecognized. Maybe it's time to tell the rest of us about those fine coworkers and let them be publicly recognized for their excellence. The Staff Service Excellence Awards are a great way to do just that.

The Winter 2000 semiannual Staff Service Excellence Awards program is seeking nominations of non-faculty staff members for consideration. The SSEA program is designed to recognize university personnel who perform in true service excellence, far out-performing normal job expectations. Up to 12 non-faculty staff members are eligible to win a $100 prize and a commemorative certificate.

All nominations will be considered solely on the basis of the nomination content. Nominations should include as much detail as possible to describe the excellence exhibited by the nominee. Nominations may be submitted through Friday, Feb. 18, to Kitty Scheffers, human resources, by memo or by email <kitty.scheffers@wmich.edu>. Nominations also may be submitted using a nomination form that can be obtained from human resources by calling 616 387-3620.

Winners for the Winter 2000 round of awards will be announced in early March.
