Staff Recognition

Unsung Hero Award

Nomination Form

Overview

This award honors four benefited UW staff members who are deserving of recognition for outstanding duties performed.

Reward

The recipients will each be given:

  • $1,000

  • Plaque

This award will be presented by Staff Senate on UW Staff Recognition Day.

Eligibility

To be eligible the nominees must:

  • Full Time Nominations must work at least 40 hours a week

  • Part Time Nominations must work less than 40 hours a week

  • Be a classified staff member

  • Have completed his/her probation term prior to January of the nomination year

Nomination Process

Each nomination must be submitted using the online form.  If an incomplete form is received prior to the deadline, the nominator will be contacted to complete the form correctly.

Each nominee must have one nomination.

After the nomination period closes, the Recognition Committee will examine the potential candidates.  The committee chair will ensure that all of the nominations follow the process guidelines and that there are no descriptors used that compromise anonymity.  The Recognition Committee, not including the chair, may narrow the choices down to half (or a minimum of four) of the original nominee pool by rating each nominee on a 7-point likert scale.  If the original nominee pool does not exceed four nominees, the committee will not screen.  The Executive Committee of Staff Senate will select the final award recipient.

Selection Criteria

The selection process will be based on the following information:

  • Communicates effectively, listens well, and promotes mutual understanding and trust

  • Inspires others to do their best

  • Accomplishes tasks that go beyond the call of duty, without recognition or reward

  • Provides quality customer service to students/faculty/staff/visitors/vendors
