Employee Service Award Program
The service award program was created to provide special recognition to faculty and staff for their years of service to the University. Employees with five or more years of service will be acknowledged at each five year milestone.
There are two aspects of the service awards program: the service awards program itself and the public recognition that takes place during the annual years of service award celebration.
Individuals celebrating a milestone anniversary will receive a letter from the University President and a personalized certificate recognizing the individual for his or her dedication to the University. As a way of saying thank you, employees will have the opportunity to select a gift to commemorate their special anniversary. Employees will receive a service award packet and will be able to view a gift selection catalog and order their gift online by using a personalized PIN number that will be included in the packet.
Employees may contact Gina Zitzer at 651-962-6901 in the Human Resources Department with any questions.
Annual Years of Service Award Celebration
The University publicly recognizes employees with five or more years of service at each five-year milestone of an employee's St. Thomas career. The annual years of service award celebration occurs in February of each year and is the event at which the entire campus community comes together to honor their colleagues who have celebrated a milestone anniversary date.
Honorees and their managers receive a formal invitation to the celebration. Family members and friends of the honorees are also welcome to attend the ceremony.
