Tammy Subotich, Stockroom Manager, is the November Employee of the Month

Tammy Subotich, the stockroom manager, with the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, is Old Dominion University's Employee of the Month for November.

Subotich has been with the University since 1989.

Subotich was recognized for her hard work and dedication to her role. According to her supervisor Alicia Herr, "Tammy is smart and creative. She has played a vital role in the planning of ODU's new chemistry building. She is a great networker, which has led to our department learning some best practices and tips from other professionals as we make progress with the chemistry building's development."

John Cooper, the department chair of Chemistry and Biochemistry, echoed Herr's sentiment by recognizing Subotich for her in-depth involvement as well as her ability to formulate and execute plans.

"Tammy excels in her role and ensures that all requirements are met," Cooper said. "Often times, she is ten steps ahead, proactively creating solutions to problems that we didn't know would exist. Tammy has been a stellar employee at ODU, even beyond her own department."


The University Employee of the Month Selection Committee encourages employees to nominate their outstanding, "go the extra mile" colleagues and employees. This program is designed to acknowledge and reward employees whose accomplishments and/or demeanor exemplify excellence, quality service and commitment to ODU. Classified and AP faculty employees receive a framed certificate from the president, $175 and one day of leave. Hourly winners get $250, since they are not eligible to receive recognition leave.

Note: The selection committee needs specific examples that relate to each applicable criterion in order to select a nominee for the award. Nominations remain active for six months from date of submission and nominators may submit additional documentation to support a nominee during the active six months.

The criteria used to nominate an employee include the following:

  • An outstanding accomplishment that benefited the department/students.
  • Extraordinary service to internal and/or external customers.
  • Inspiring initiative/leadership.
  • Enthusiasm/energy given to assigned work.
  • Teamwork.
  • Exemplary efforts to nurture a climate of care, concern and civility.
  • Creative innovations to service, process or work tools.
