Awards will recognize classified employee achievements

February 19, 2015

Nominations are being sought for the 2015 Classified Employee Recognition Award, an annual program that rewards exemplary performance from classified staff at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

All permanent classified employees who have worked at UW–Madison for at least three years are eligible for nomination.

Candidates are evaluated on a variety of factors, including 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 deadline for submitting nominations is March 2.

A committee of classified staff will review the nominations and choose the winners. CERA recipients receive a commemorative plaque, paid registration to an employee development program of their choice and a cash award. The winners will also be honored for their achievements at a special spring ceremony hosted by the chancellor at Olin House.
