KEY ADMINISTRATORS/KEY SUPPORT STAFF (excluding UCSD Medical Center)
Each year, UCSD celebrates the dedication of staff employees and their years of service with the UCSD Annual Service Awards. Employees are eligible for recognition when they have achieved 10 or more years of service, at five-year intervals (10, 15, 20, etc.).
A notice was issued in July 2006 announcing this year's Annual Service Awards Program and requesting information on eligible employees. This follow-up notice is the final call to submit the referenced information and extends the submission deadline to Friday, August 18, 2006.
The 2005-06 ceremony will be held Thursday, October 12, 2006, from 2:30-4:30 p.m. in the Price Center Ballroom. Invitations to the awards ceremony will be mailed to eligible employees in September 2006.
Employees are eligible for recognition this year if their service achievement occurs between September 1, 2005, and August 31, 2006. To assist in determining eligibility, departments may use the Service Credit Calculation form used to request service pins. This information is available on the Service Pins Web page on Blink:
Due to the high volume of Service Credit Calculation forms received over this period, all service credit calculations may not be verified prior to the Service Awards due date. Therefore, departments should ensure lists of eligible employees are submitted by Friday, August 18, 2006, even if they have not received verification from the Human Resources' Records Unit.
SUBMITTING AWARD RECIPIENT INFORMATION
To ensure all eligible employees are recognized, departments should complete and submit either the following Excel spreadsheet (preferred) or Word table, which details all required information:
Please e-mail the completed Excel spreadsheet or Word table to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, August 18, 2006.
