The Rewards and Recognition program is now accepting nominations for 2003 Excellence Awards--the highest recognition for MIT staff. Recent global events and the difficult economic climate have created added demands on employees, making it more important than ever to acknowledge co-workers for their outstanding contributions.
Members of the MIT community are urged to nominate any eligible employee for an Excellence Award in one of the following areas: creating innovative solutions, making MIT a great place to work, providing exceptional client service, leading others through change, and making a difference in our communities. Nominations previously written for a local Infinite Mile Award may also be submitted for an MIT Excellence Award. For more information on the award categories, the selection process, employee eligibility and the nomination form, visit http://web.mit.edu/hr/rewards/excellence.
Anyone wanting help writing a nomination may attend a brown-bag lunch discussion on Thursday, May 8 from noon to 1 p.m. (Lincoln Lab); Wednesday, May 14 from noon to 1 p.m. (Room 10-105); Tuesday, May 20 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. (Student Center West Lounge); or Friday, May 23 from noon to 1 p.m. (Room E19-758).
The Excellence Awards celebration will take place on Oct. 15. For details, see http://web.mit.edu/hr/rewards or contact program administrator Kande Culver at 253-5986 or email@example.com.
