Earlier this year, the Vanderbilt University Human Resources department formed a Recognition Strategy Task Force Committee to create a recognition strategy that would guide the university’s efforts in enhancing the Employee Appreciation and Recognition programs. The committee was charged with helping to define Vanderbilt’s philosophy in order to:
- Appreciate people for their individual talents, skills and diversity of thought.
- Create an atmosphere that fosters good relationships at all levels.
- Recognize accomplishments in a timely manner and celebrate successes as they occur.
Work by the following Recognition Strategy Task Force Committee members helped bring the new strategy to fruition: Kelsey Anito, Pam Brown, Scott Eller, Kara Furlong, Scott Glasgow, Gwen Hopkins, Becky Keck, Angela Land-Dedrick, Sarah Little, Jenny Mandeville, Erik Smetana, Jermaine Soto, Kiley Stokes and Anna Thomas.
The new recognition mission and strategy can be found online on the Recognition page.
