Nominate candidates for UW-Madison Classified Employee Recognition Awards by Feb. 13

Chancellor Martin has announced the call for nominations for the 2009 UW-Madison Classified Employee Recognition Awards. This is a great opportunity for you to honor classified employees who go above and beyond normal expectations. Nominated candidates are evaluated based on a variety of key factors, including exhibiting leadership, performing well under pressure, developing innovative solutions to everyday problems, and participating in public service activities outside normal work responsibilities.

CERA recipients will receive a commemorative plaque, the opportunity to attend an employee development program, and a cash award. These individuals will also be highlighted in Wisconsin Week and will be honored for their achievements at a special spring ceremony.

The deadline for submitting nominations is February 13, 2009.
