“Paul provides consistent and exceptional technical support for glitches and undocumented features - he has been our go-to man for some time,” wrote one of Paul Grzeszczak’s IT Services colleagues in recognition of his superior performance.
Grzeszczak received the IT Services Achievement Award as part of the first annual IT Services Awards, held during last week’s Technology Day.
In his nomination, a peer wrote, “I often wonder where we would be if issues had not been taken on by him, and how large the backlog for completing our tasks would be.”
Grzeszczak thanked the department for the recognition and said he was honoured.
The newly established initiative recognizes employees in the importance of service, innovation, teamwork, leadership, collegiality and stakeholder engagement.
IT Services Systems Analyst Cathy Crowley says it was created to provide a formal process for acknowledging outstanding achievements by IT staff members.
“It also recognizes other University units in support of the department’s, and ultimately the University’s, mission and vision.”
The IT Collegiality Award went to Ryan Kenney, while the The Friend of IT Services Award, recognizing champions of IT initiatives, was presented to Paul Henshaw, Stephen Karamatos, Nicole Noel and Stephanie Parent, for their contributions to the IT department’s Bike to Work initiative.
