Nominate for campus classified staff recognition awards by Feb. 22

Nominations are open for the 2013  UW-Madison Classified Employee Recognition Awards. CERA is an excellent opportunity to recognize a classified employee who has done an outstanding job for the university community. The deadline for submitting nominations is February 22.

Nominated candidates are evaluated based on a variety of 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. The CERA committee will review the nominations and select five outstanding individuals to 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 honorees will also be highlighted in the campus’ electronic employee newsletter, Inside UW-Madison, and will be recognized for their achievements at a special ceremony in the spring.

Further nomination information may be obtained through the following website:  <>

As the university continues to transition on a variety of fronts, it is especially important to recognize our outstanding employees. CERA provides a valuable tool to honor those employees who go above and beyond expectations.  These extraordinary employees are key to achieving our strategic goals.
