Management-award nominations due March 17

08 March 2006

The Berkeley Staff Assembly is seeking nominations for its annual Excellence in Management award. Now in its 18th year, the award provides an opportunity for employees to acknowledge the exemplary contributions of their managers and supervisors.

This year's theme, "Excellence in Management: Celebrating Managers Who Celebrate Staff," recognizes supervisors and managers who are proactive in their efforts to support and retain excellent staff. Nominees may do this by creating a diverse and inclusive workforce, supporting flexible or non-traditional working arrangements, providing opportunities for staff development and growth, encouraging creativity and "thinking out of the box" to find solutions, and sponsoring ways to recognize staff and encourage teamwork.

The award is open to employees at all levels who have had management or supervisory responsibilities for one year or more in their current positions. Nominations must originate from staff directly supervised by the nominee and must include supporting signatures from at least one-half of these staff. Individuals who received the award last year are not eligible for re-nomination this year.

Nominations should be no longer than two pages, and must be received by Friday, March 17. The nomination form may be downloaded from bsa.berkeley.edu. Submit nominations to Excellence in Management Award, c/o Beverly Skinner, College of Engineering, 320 McLaughlin, MC 1700.

Award recipients will be announced in April and the awards ceremony will be held at noon, May 15, at International House's Chevron Auditorium. For information, call 643-7560 or e-mail jbell@berkeley.edu.
