      The nomination process takes place in the fall of each year.

      Selection Process

      Outstanding Employee Award recipients are selected by a committee comprised of OAs and classified staff.  Committee members are obtained from the following sources: OA and classified Senate representatives, Classified Staff Training and Development Advisory Committee (CSTDAC), OA Council, and diversity committees.  The committee also includes a representative from Human Resources (Chief Human Resources Officer or her designee).  The Employee Engagement Manager facilitates the selection process.

      The committee makes selection decisions based on the information submitted on the nomination form and in the letters of support.  Award recipients are determined by their demonstrated ability to meet the established criteria as detailed and explained in the nomination materials.  Committee members do not seek additional information on nominees to make final decisions.  Detailed information about a nominee as described by those submitting the nomination and contributing a letter of support is the determining factor. 

      At least one OA and one classified staff will be honored each year.  The committee may choose to recognize multiple employees at its discretion.

      The supervisor for each nominee is contacted by the Employee Engagement Manager to provide a supervisor response.  This response is intended to substantiate a nomination and ensure that employees meeting performance expectations are considered for this prestigious honor.  Employees with performance concerns may be excluded from consideration.  The supervisor response is not used to collect additional information for the committee to consider in the selection process.  Supervisors contribute to a nominees consideration by submitting a letter of support in accordance with the nomination process.

      Years of Service Reception

      Human Resources hosted honorees at this employee recognition event in celebration of reaching a major milestone in years of service* at the University of Oregon.

      List of Honorees

      *Human Resources determines years of service using the calendar date of December 31, 2016 and the employment dates in the university's Banner HRIS system.  Honorees include employees who have reached an increment of five years of service (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, etc.).


      Congratulations and thank you to all employees who reached major anniversary milestones in 2016. 

      For those who attended the receptions, the drawings for prizes is completed with the list of winners now available.  Photos are also accessible through OneDrive.  Use the links below to view prize winners and browse the photo library.

       


      Event Information

      This event is held annually to celebrate employees who reached major anniversary milestones the previous calendar year.  Invitations to a reception are typically generated by Human Reosurces in January of each year.  Service lapel pins and certificates, if requested, are distributed to all honorees regardless of participation in the reception.

      This is a come and go event.  Honorees and their guests may arrive and depart at anytime during the event.  The receptions provide honorees the opportunity to socialize with their guests and other honorees while taking part in activities celebrating their service. 

      A small presentation, including comments from President Schill, will take place towards the middle of each event--Wednesday around 9am and Thursday around 4pm.

      Weight Watchers

      The Public Employees Benefit Board (PEBB) offers Weight Watchers as part of the benefits program to help employees achieve their weight-loss goals and improve their overall health.  Employees eligible for PEBB coverage and their covered spouses, domestic partners and dependents age 10 and older can enroll in Weight Watchers at no cost. Several options are available, such as access to weekly meetings and online tools.

      Weight Watchers at Work brings the Weight Watchers experience to campus, where a trained leader facilitates meetings that provide a support-group environment shown to help meet weight-loss goals. The UO campus Weight Watchers sessions meets weekly.

      Each session requires preregistration, and a new participant may only begin attending meetings at the start of a new session.

      A new session of Weight Watchers at Work begins February 2.
