Employee of the Month Nomination Form

Nomination Guidelines:

Staff Council initiated the Employee of the Month (EOM) Award in 1975 to honor UCD employees who deserve special recognition for the outstanding jobs that they do.

Who can be nominated? Any classified staff member on the UCD payroll who has passed his/her probationary period.

Who can nominate an employee? Any other UCD employee.

Three (3) nomination forms must be received for a candidate in order for that employee to be considered for the EOM award. At least one nomination form should be from the employee's own workplace.

When nominating a fellow employee for EOM, consideration should be given to the following:

  • Active interest in the UCD
  • Concern for and helpfulness to others
  • Pride in his/her job
  • Consistently high job performance
  • Actions above and beyond the call of duty
  • Adherence to safety procedures
  • Cooperative attitude
  • Cost containment
  • Committee involvement

Consideration should also be given to:

  • Community involvement
  • Volunteer service
  • Ideas promoting positive growth

Qualities for which individuals will be selected are: outstanding service, superior performance, exceptional efficiency, integrity and dedication to UCD and fellow staff members.

The Staff Council Images Committee will select an award recipient each month. Eligible nominees (those with three or more nomination forms) who are not selected will be returned to the pool of nominees for consideration the next month. Nominations are retained for one year, after which time nomination forms should be resubmitted for continued consideration of the nominee.

The Employee of the Month Award Consists of:

  • Certificate of recognition, signed by the Chancellor and Staff Council Chair
  • Cash or cash equivalent (ex. Visa Gift Card) 
  • Invitation and recognition at Chancellor's Recognition event
