SHP Employee Recognition - Do you know a fellow SHP employee or team of employees who have done an outstanding job; who exemplify the vision and values of our institution? How about an employee who has made an outstanding contribution to the community, independently or through their work with other organizations? Do you know someone who has provided significant service to another individual?
You can nominate that deserving employee, or team of employees, through the U. Rock employee recognition program. The purpose of the program is to say "thank you," "well done," "we value you as an employee." It is a process to express our appreciation for the contributions of each other. Examples of reasons to say thank you include; fixing a computer glitch in a timely manner, assisting with a project, performing job duties in a friendly and courteous manner, etc.

Every two months two names are chosen from all SHP STARS to be highlighted in the SHP Newsletter. These two winners also receive a gift card as a token of appreciation for their exemplary work!

I like the way that Tina has made the business of our CLS department her focus. Her attitude is always positive. When you ask her about something she knows the answer in spite of only being here a litte over a year. Tasks are completed if not ahead of time, in a very timely manner. She's a problem solver who has the faculty, staff and students interests at heart. She gives our department that touch of professionalism in her actions and relationships. We couldn't ask for better.
