Staff Senate

 


NDSU Staff Recognition Awards

Individual Staff Recognition Awards are presented annually to the broadbanded staff at North Dakota State University.  Up to ten awards may be distributed according to the percentages in each of the five NDSU categories: Administrative/Professional, Technical/Paraprofessional, Office Support, Crafts/Trades, and Services. Each recipient will receive a cash award of $250. 

The Team Recognition Award recognizes a group of individuals who have contributed to the accomplishment of a major change or benefit to the University community.  A team may be made up of any combination of broadbanded and non-broadbanded staff with a minimum of 2 and maximum of 10 members. The team needs to have a connection to NDSU and only broadbanded team members employed at NDSU will receive the award.   Teams can be a part of a larger scope, such as NDUS.  The accomplishment needs to be NDSU related.  The team will receive a cash award of $600 to be divided equally between members (maximum of $250 per individual).

The 2018 awards will be announced and presented at the Staff Recognition Dessert Social on Thursday, April 12 from 1:30-3:00 pm in the Great Plains Ballroom at the Memorial Union. 

The following criteria should be considered as a guide for making nominations for either the Individual or Team Recognition Award.

  • Any broadbanded staff member: who is half-time (50%) or more.
  • Outstanding achievement on the job: actions that constitute performance beyond expectation standards.
  • Exceptional contributions towards the effectiveness and efficiency of operations: actions that contribute to the maximum utilization of departmental resources. 
  • Outstanding service to other employees, students, or visitors: actions that are especially helpful or make a good impression on others.
  • Distinguished efforts in staff development/recognition: actions that help provide employees with opportunities to learn and to be rewarded.
