Employee Appreciation Board accepting nominations for recognizing top units

Story by Colleen Weitzel 

You may be familiar with the CSU Employee Appreciation Board because of the monthly prize drawings for CSU swag, or maybe you or someone you know has been the lucky recipient of the coveted reserved parking space that is awarded monthly. These are probably the most visible duties of the CSUEAB, but the board is so much more. Employees work hard to make CSU great, and the board wants to recognize them for that.

One of the main objectives of the board is to recognize CSU employees and work units that have gone above and beyond in their everyday job duties. The selected units are recognized for their hard work and accomplishments at a personalized event such as a luncheon, breakfast or ice cream social, and receive CSU swag (individually or raffled,  depending on the size of the unit). And don’t worry if your unit is not located at the Fort Collins campus, the board will send the party to you. The selected units are also recognized in a SOURCE article highlighting their accomplishments.

How do you nominate a group? It’s easy. Simply go to the CSUEAB website to submit a nomination by April 28 for a chance to have your unit recognized before the end of the fiscal year. Be sure to include specific examples as to why you feel your group should be recognized and what they do to go above and beyond their normal, everyday job duties.

Previously honored groups

Groups that have been honored previously include:

• Woodland Park District, CSFS – exceeds annual goals by producing more treated acres annually than any other district within the Colorado State Forest Service.
• Environmental Services, Housing – provides consistent, top-notch customer service to the CSU community, working overtime when necessary to assure that campus is a safe and clean place to work and live.

Originally formed in 1968, the CSUEAB is one of the longest standing traditions on campus. The board is composed of representatives from departments and colleges campuswide, volunteering their time to help recognize employees for their hard work.
