Nominees sought for Employee of the Year

The Human Resources Department is accepting nominations for the 2018 Staff Employee of the Year awards. This program honors UNC Charlotte staff members who have contributed exemplary service beyond the normal parameters of their job. Any permanent employee of UNC Charlotte can submit a nomination and are encouraged to do so.

Individuals can be nominated in any one of five categories:

  • Devotion to Duty (Outstanding State Government Service)
  • Innovation
  • Human Relations
  • Community/Public Service
  • Safety/Heroism

One award may be given in each of the listed categories. Multiple winners may be chosen in the category of safety/heroism. Winners in the categories of devotion to duty, innovation and human relations will receive a $2,000 award. Winners in the categories of community/public service and safety/heroism will receive a $500 award.

All permanent SPA and EPA staff members with two or more years of continuous service (at the time of nomination) are eligible. An exception may be considered if an employee with less than two years of service has engaged in an act of safety/heroism.

Nominations can be submitted either online or as a hard copy to Human Resources by 5 p.m., Monday, Feb. 5.

The award winners will be announced at the Staff Recognition Luncheon on Wednesday, March 28.
