Staff Service Excellence nominations due Feb. 21

Feb. 10, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- The semiannual Staff Service Excellence Awards program at Western Michigan University is seeking nominations of non-faculty staff members for consideration for spring 2003.

The SSEA program is a peer-to-peer award program designed to recognize University personnel who perform in true service excellence, far out-performing normal job expectations. Winners are selected by representatives of the participating employee groups: AFSCME Local 1668, APA, MSEA, POA, and PSSO.

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 May 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 Feb. 21 by memo to Kitty Scheffers, Human Resources, or by e-mail to <hr-ssea@wmich.edu>, or by using a nomination form that can be obtained from Human Resources by calling 387-3620.

Winners will be announced in March.
