Staff Recognition

UW Staff Incentive

Nomination Form


This award honors three current UW staff members who display exemplary incentive in performing their duties.


This award will be given to three nominated individuals who are current UW employees.  The recipients will each be given:

  • $1,000

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


To be eligible the nominees must:

  • Work at least 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:

  • Shows initiative and excellence in planning and implementing projects

  • Displays exemplary incentive toward problems/projects/duties

  • Works well with others to provide high-quality results related to common goals (departmental, university)

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