As the changes of the employee service awards have been implemented, the service award packages are being delivered to managers to present the award at the departmental level. These changes were announced in an earlier Newslink article.
Employees celebrating five, 10, 15 and 20 years with the University in the past two fiscal years (July 1, 2010 - June 30, 2012) and employees celebrating 25, 30 and 35-plus years with the University for the last fiscal year (July 1, 2011 - June 30, 2012) should have or will be shortly receiving award packets.
Employees who celebrated a five year increment anniversary from July 1 through Dec. 31 will receive their award packages in January.
Starting in January, managers will be given a recognition packet each month to provide to employees who are celebrating five or more years of service to the University. Supervisors will be instructed to present the packets in front of their staff, to build greater appreciation for an employee's commitment and hard work among their colleagues.
The changes to the service awards — which reflect current best practices in the field of human resources — are designed to make the recognition experience for each employee more personal, timely and collegial.
The monthly award packages for service include the following:

|5||Framed certificate and personalized SLU keychain|
