The CSU Employee Appreciation Board had the privilege of recognizing the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences Finance and Research Office for their exemplary service on Oct. 21.
Nominated by Dana Schwartz, the group continuously goes above and beyond by assisting with tasks and providing customer service beyond their normal scope of duties. When an accountant in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital suddenly left, an employee in the Finance and Research Office offered to take on PCard reallocation for the VTH during the stressful year-end time frame.
In another instance, when a complicated research training grant was awarded to a department outside of CVMBS, this group volunteered to take over the administration of it because of their expertise on these types of awards and the outside department was unfamiliar with it.
Schwartz also shared another example of how this group embodies the true spirit of customer service. The Dish Network office was previously located where the finance office is now, and they still get people coming in wanting help with Dish issues. Recently, a gentleman in his 80s who couldn’t get his TV to work came in. One of the employees helped him call the number on the bill to help get it fixed.
“This group deserved to be recognized for making CSU a great place to work, and ultimately giving individuals positive experiences with CSU,” Schwaartz said. The CSUEAB agrees! Congratulations on a job well done!
