DETAILS ABOUT THE EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH PROCESS
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.
Enthusiasm/energy given to assigned work.
Exemplary efforts to nurture a climate of care, concern and civility.
