York University believes that our employees are one of our most valuable assets. Our commitment to excellence is realized through contributions of loyal individuals whose service plays an invaluable role in the University’s growth, development and successes.
Historically, the University has recognized faculty and staff who have reach service milestones at 25 years and beyond, at an annual institutional recognition event. As part of the Better Workplaces initiative and in response to the employee engagement survey, the Reward and Recognition working group together with the Office of the Vice-President Finance & Administration and the Department of Human Resources have created a program to expand the University’s service recognition program. The expanded program will now recognize eligible employees for service awards for each five years of continuous, active service (i.e., five, 10, 15 years, etc.).
“I believe that it is important that York University recognizes the dedicated contributions of its employees and that this expanded service recognition program is a significant addition to our employee recognition strategy,” said Mamdouh Shoukri, president and vice-chancellor.
The expanded service recognition program will be rolled out this summer.
