The deadline for submitting nominations for the ANR Staff Appreciation and Recognition (STAR) program for the fiscal year 2016-17 has been extended to April 3.
The program provides cash awards to eligible staff in recognition of outstanding achievement. Managers may nominate individuals and teams demonstrating exceptional performance, creativity, organizational abilities, work success and teamwork.
ANR staff in PSS and MSP titles, as well as members of the Clerical Unit (CX), are eligible to be nominated for cash awards. Nomination forms and program guidelines are attached. To simplify the process, we've streamlined the nomination form.
Send your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to submit is Monday, April 3.
The purpose of the STAR program is to recognize and reward outstanding staff individual and team performance within Agriculture and Natural Resources.
Under the STAR plan, managers can recognize, acknowledge and reward staff employees for exceptional performance or significant contributions related to and supportive of individual, departmental, divisional or organizational goals and objectives.
A review committee will review the applications and recommend up to 20 individuals and two teams to the vice president, who has authority to approve STAR awards. Individuals who are eligible may receive cash awards of $1,250. For teams of 12 or fewer, team members may receive $1,000. Teams of 13 or more will share $12,000. Some restrictions may apply to eligibility for cash awards.
STAR Awards will be celebrated during an ANR recognition event at the Second Street building in Davis.
