Classified Employee of the Year nominations

By Annette Hernandez

The 36th annual Classified Employee Recognition Ceremony will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 24, 2013, in the K-State Student Union Ballroom. In preparation for this event, nominations are being sought for Classified Employee of the Year. This award recognizes classified employees who have demonstrated outstanding performance during the 2012 calendar year.

Please note there is a change in the nomination process. For 2013, the number of nominations will correspond to the number of Classified Senators from each college/major administrative unit. Listed below is the breakdown:

Colleges include: Agriculture, Research and Extension, four; Architecture, Planning and Design, one; Arts and Science, one; Business Administration, one; Education, one; Engineering, one; Hale Library, one; Human Ecology, one; K-State Salina, one; Veterinary Medicine, two.

Major administrative units include: Administration and Finance, six; office of the president/office of the provost, one; Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students, four; and local agencies, one.

Prior to submitting nominations to Classified Senate, each college and administrative unit should have in place written procedures for the criteria and selection process. Selection committee membership preferably should include a previous year award winner. Please refer to the following website for award guidelines: http://www.k-state.edu/hr/ped/classified-award-guidelines.html. Departments must submit nominations to their respective college deans or major administrative units to their respective vice presidents.

Under this award program, colleges/major administrative units may provide a $300 monetary award (net amount award) to the selected award winner and/or co-recipients. Utilizing department funds or endowment funding, it is understood the departments will be charged a gross amount to include employee deduction, taxes and employer benefits. Payment requests to selected employees are to be submitted to Payroll on a PER-7 (not Add Pay form). Suggested time frame for payment should be in conjunction with the Classified Awards Recognition Ceremony. Colleges, major administrative units and departments may choose to recognize several classified employees with monetary awards, but Classified Senate will recognize only the number of winners as listed above from each college or major administrative unit at the ceremony.

Deadline for submission of nominations is Feb. 15, 2013. Please submit nomination forms located at http://www.k-state.edu/class-senate/award.html to Annette Hernandez, K-State Salina Engineering Technology, 109 Technology Center, via campus mail, email ahernan@k-state.edu or fax 785-826-2941.
