Staff Recognition

E.G. Meyer Family Award

Nomination Form


This award was created by E.G. Meyer to recognize staff on the UW campus.  This is the longest standing award on campus dedicated to staff. This award honors two current UW staff members.


The recipients will each be given:

  • $1,000 each

  • Recognition Plaque

This award will be presented by Staff Senate on Staff Recognition Day, and E.G. Meyer is invited to participate in the presentation.


To be eligible the nominees must:

  • One award will be designated for an exempt staff member

  • One award will be designated for a non-exempt 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 a minimum of three separate nominations.  

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:

  • Initiative to do his/her job well

  • Helpful interaction with students/faculty/staff/visitors/vendors

  • Dependability

  • Positive and cheerful demeanor
