Release Time for UW Staff Recognition Day Thursday
University of Wyoming President Tom Buchanan has granted up to two hours of release time to attend Staff Recognition Day that begins at 10 a.m. Thursday in the Crane-Hill Dining Hall. More than 275 employees will be honored at the event.
The scheduling of release time should be a collaborative discussion between employee and supervisor to ensure the effective and efficient operation of the unit.
“Your Voice, UW’s Future” is the theme of the annual event that features door prizes, entertainment and a raffle for two prizes, as well as years of service recognition and staff awards. The announcement of the 2012 Employee of the Year, which is selected from among four quarterly winners, will be among the event’s highlights.
Sixty-three individuals who have worked at UW for at least 20 years will be honored. Additionally, more than $18,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded to outstanding staff members.
