The UF Office of the President and UF Human Resources (UFHR) are pleased to announce a new Service Recognition program that re-envisions the way we recognize our staff for their years of service to the university. The new program builds on the former “Service Pin” program to provide a more robust celebration of UF staff.
The former Service Pin program was designed to recognize years of employment of USPS and TEAMS employees. Service pins were distributed on a biannual basis and awarded in five-year increments (5, 10, 15, etc.) based on continuous service, starting from an employee’s most recent date of hire at UF.
The Office of the President and UFHR have partnered with the UF Bookstore for this new program. USPS and TEAMS employees will continue to be recognized in five-year increments, based on continuous service, starting from an employee’s most recent date of hire at UF. Recipients may choose from a selection of gifts at the bookstore based on their years of service, such as a UF umbrella, padfolio, fleece blanket or one of several other items.
Beginning in January 2019, during their anniversary month, recipients will receive an email (e-card) from the bookstore inviting them to select an anniversary gift. A link will be provided in the e-card that directs recipients to a Service Recognition webpage on the bookstore website, where they can select their gift. Recipients have the option to pick up their gift at the UF Bookstore or have it shipped to an address of their choice.
Be on the lookout for more details in the next UF at Work, out on Tuesday, Jan. 22.
