Receiving an award for their service to the campus was an honour, says Shelly Scurr, one of the staff in the Faculty of Engineering’s Office of the Dean who received the 2014 team service excellence award at a reception in January.
“It was nice to be recognized by faculty and staff alike,” she says. “I encourage all faculty and staff to nominate a team of people or an outstanding person in your department or office who goes above and beyond to give students, faculty and staff a positive experience and enrich their time here at the University of Windsor.”
Nominations are now open for the Employee Recognition Awards, designed to celebrate the outstanding contributions of employees to the achievement of the mission and vision of the University.
Joyceln Lorito, a residence life coordinator, received a service excellence award for employees in the first five years of campus employment. She says she appreciated recognition from students for work she loves.
“It was a warm fuzzy moment that continues to last, as I have placed my award on the wall of my office and often get asked about it,” Lorito says.
These awards reinforce the importance of service, innovation, teamwork, leadership, safety and community involvement, and include the following:
- Excellence in Leadership Award
- Service Excellence Award – Individuals
- Service Excellence Award – Team
- Service Excellence Award – the First Five Years of Employment
- Excellence in Health and Safety Award
- UWindsor Spirit Award
- “U” Make A Difference Award
- Impact Award
The campus community is invited to nominate an individual or team for an employee recognition award, as being recognized and recognizing others builds a supportive and positive workplace and contributes to making the University of Windsor the best place to work and learn.
These awards are coordinated by the Department of Human Resources. Submissions are reviewed by a committee composed of employees representing departments across campus.
