Employee of the Month 

The President’s Cabinet, in collaboration with Staff Senate, the Business Office, the Office of Human Resources, and Aramark Food Services is pleased to share with you the Employee of the Month program.  This program is designed to recognize those employees who go above and beyond the call of duty by exhibiting excellence and dedication to one or more of Lander’s Core Values as we strive to become an employer of choice.

Any Lander employee may nominate any full-time staff member by completing the online Nomination Form located on the HR Forms website.  The person completing the form does not have to work in the same department as the staff member being nominated. All nominations will be submitted to the Office of Human Resources for acknowledgement that the employee is in good standing, then forwarded to Staff Senate for discussion and voting. Decisions will be based on which nominee best represents Lander’s Core Values.  

Nominations received by the last Friday of each month will be considered for the following month’s award.
