Time to nominate for UW-Madison Classified Employee Recognition Awards

It’s time to submit nominations for the 2011 UW-Madison Classified Employee Recognition Awards (CERA).

CERA is a great opportunity for you to recognize a classified employee who has done an outstanding job for the university community. Nominated candidates are evaluated based on a variety of key factors, including their success at promoting excellence within the work unit, performing well under pressure, developing innovative solutions to everyday problems, and participating in public service activities outside normal work responsibilities.

A committee will review the nominations and make the final decision about who should receive the awards. The CERA recipients will receive a commemorative plaque, paid registration to an employee development program of their choice, 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.

Further information may be obtained through the CERA website:

It is important to recognize our exceptional employees. CERA provides a valuable tool to honor employees who go above and beyond normal expectations. These extraordinary employees are key to achieving our strategic goals.

The deadline for submitting nominations is February 21st, so don’t delay.
