Employee Appreciation Program


Contributed by Jane Ray

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around”. Leo Buscaglia, author and lecturer

November is almost here, and with it comes the highly acclaimed eighth annual Employee Appreciation Program, “Thank You for Making a Difference”.

We invite all Ithaca College employees to take a few minutes during the month of November to write a "thank-you" note to a colleague. We are fortunate at IC to be surrounded by people who are dedicated, talented, and committed to excellence. Your co-workers do a great job every day -- so thank them!

Thank you cards for you to use in expressing your appreciation to a co-worker will be distributed via intercampus mail. As in past years, enclosed with each thank you card is a coupon that the recipient can redeem at the Employee Appreciation Reward Center located in the Office of Human Resources on the Garden Level of the Peggy Ryan Williams Center.  

The Reward Center is amazing this year! Our shelves are overflowing with lots of cool gifts for your valued co-workers to choose from. A simple thank you means a lot. Why not make it extra special with a trip to the Employee Appreciation Reward Center?

For questions or comments, please contact the Office of Human Resources at 274-8000.
