A new employee service award celebrating the power of teamwork is now open for nominations.
Created by the Office of the President and Vice-Chancellor, the Brock University Outstanding Team Service Award will annually recognize a team of faculty and/or staff members for their outstanding contributions throughout the year beyond what is normally expected. Criteria for the award includes:
- The provision of exceptional service to staff, faculty, students, alumni, donors or visitors; or
- The identification of measures that contribute to the effectiveness of University operations; or
- A direct or indirect contribution that positively impacts the University community internally or externally. For example, a contribution that impacts student success or a contribution that impacts the reputation of Brock.
“The award (…) allows us to leverage the benefits of multiple perspectives, skills and experiences to perform the extraordinary,” said Jennifer Guarasci, Associate Vice-President, Human Resources. “This has been particularly important over the last 18 months, as we worked together to see Brock successfully through some very difficult times.”
The deadline for nominations for the Brock University Outstanding Team Service Award is Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2022 at 4:30 p.m.
The call for nominations letter with details on award criteria and administration, as well as the required forms, can be found on the Human Resources/Compensation SharePoint page.
