The University of Cincinnati's staff service anniversary recognition program is an important component of our overall recognition process. We encourage managers to take this excellent opportunity to express appreciation and gratitude for his/her employee's dedication, commitment and accomplishments associated with years of service.
Anniversary dates are identified using the employee's Recent Hire Date. With the Staff Recognition Program, two emails are sent out from our vendor, Michael C. Fina.
If an employee is celebrating a milestone anniversary - 10 years, 25 years, or 40 years - he or she will also receive a framed certificate.
Managers can use the UC-branded certificate to present to their employee, in addition to the certificate the employee receives from the recognition program.
There are a limited number of pins from our previous program available upon request from the manager or employee being recognized. (Some quanitites are low and there is no implied guarantee of availablity.) Contact Sharon Burks, Human Resources, at email@example.com.
We ran out of the 5, 10, 25, and 35 year pins so they are not available.
Managers can recognize and reward employees throughout the year in various ways, such as taking them to lunch, giving gifts or gift cards, etc. There are many resources within the university that will not only allow you to recognize your employee, but also support the university.
(Gift cards are considered to have cash value - review the financial policy.)
It is the responsibility of the manager and employee to know and follow the UC financial policies. Refer to the University Financial Policy 3.3.1 and complete the form, Reporting Cash Equivalent and Taxable Non-Cash Rewards/Bonuses to Payroll, when appropriate.
