I wanted to take a moment to remind you that the deadline date for nominations for the IC Choice Award Program is quickly approaching. All nominations are due by October 10, 2005.
We are now accepting nominations for the seventh round of the IC Choice Award Program. Please take a few minutes to read about this opportunity to recognize an individual staff member or group of staff members who through their own initiative, commitment, support, and/or accomplishment have contributed greatly to the College’s success or who have made a difference in the lives of students, employees, or other members of the Ithaca College community. The IC Choice Award program was designed to recognize and reward exceptional efforts and contributions.
This program has been very well received by the campus community as evidenced by the number of nominations received each year. During the spring 2005 semester, program details were shared with members of Staff Council and prompted a good exchange of information and the opportunity to fully review the program. All supervisors, co-workers, members of the faculty, or students can submit nominations. Staff members who are nominated and selected to receive an award will receive $1,000. In the event a group of employees are nominated and selected, each member of the group will receive $250.
Each year many of our staff are involved with special projects and support new initiatives that make a difference in the lives of our students, employees, and other members of the College community. Please take this opportunity to nominate one of these individuals or group of staff members.
The nomination will need to show accomplishment in at least one of the following criteria categories:
- Initiative – This criterion is used to recognize individual creativity in proposing new or improved work methods, ideas, projects or approaches that contributed positively to individual or department results.
- Commitment – This criterion is intended to reward individuals who demonstrated commitment to their department and the College by regularly making a full and positive contribution for a number of years.
- Support – This criterion recognizes individuals for giving their talents and efforts in support of others in an extraordinary way.
- Accomplishment – This criterion recognizes individuals for creating and/or producing a substantive project or program for a department or the College.
To assist you in making a nomination, we have developed a web-based nomination form located at http://www.ithaca.edu/hr/compensation/icChoice/form.php. Please clearly articulate the circumstances or the accomplishments achieved by the individual or group that you are nominating. It is important to include specific examples that clearly identify and demonstrate that the nomination meets the criteria outlined above. If you are not comfortable submitting your nomination on-line, please submit your nomination in writing and address it to the Review Panel. The nominations should be sent in care of Cindy Reckdenwald, Director of Compensation and Organizational Design, Office of Human Resources.
All nominations must be received by October 10, 2005 in order to be considered for this round of IC Choice Awards. In the event a nomination was submitted last semester, but was not selected, you should resubmit the nomination if you would like it to be considered for a 2005 award.
Should you have any questions regarding the IC Choice Award Program, contact Cindy Reckdenwald, Director of Compensation and Organizational Design at 4-3083 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
