Employee Recognition

Auburn Facilities Management has an employee recognition program that recognizes excellence in the areas of team work, safety, cost reduction, customer service, support and leadership excellence, technical-professional skill and craftsmanship.  An Employee Recognition Committee handles the awarding of three of the award types described below.  The Employees of the Year are selected by Dan King, Assistant Vice President of Facilities Management.

Certificate of Appreciation

Recognizing individuals for a one-time act of outstanding performance

Employees earning the Certificate of Appreciation receive a four-hour paid leave slip to be used within one month of receiving the award. This time off must be coordinated with the employee’s direct supervisor. The recipient’s name will be placed on the Certificate of Appreciation Board.

Tiger Ticket

Recognizing individuals with consistent outstanding job performance

Tiger Ticket recipients receive an eight-hour paid leave slip to be used within one month of receiving the award. This time off must be coordinated with the employee’s direct supervisor. Recipients will also receive an invitation to an awards luncheon and a polo shirt which may be worn on Fridays in place of their required uniform (wearing the polo shirt does not excuse any employee from fulfilling their normal work duties). The recipient’s name will be placed on the Tiger Ticket Board. All Tiger Ticket recipients will qualify as nominees for the Tiger of the Year.

Tiger of the Year and Tiger Team of the Year

Recognizing the top individual Tiger Ticket recipient and the top group Tiger Ticket recipients as the most outstanding employees of the year

The Tiger of the Year winner is chosen from Tiger Ticket recipients awarded throughout the calendar year, and the Tiger Team of the Year winners are chosen from group Tiger Ticket nominations. These awards are given to the Tiger Ticket recipients that has displayed exemplary efforts on behalf of Facilities Management in the past year. These will be formally announced at the end-of-year Tiger Ticket Luncheon and formally acknowledged at the Facilities Holiday Luncheon. Winners will receive a certificate and prize of monetary value (recipients will be responsible for all applicable local, state and federal taxes. According to current IRS tax codes, these taxes must be withdrawn from the winners’ pay before the end of the calendar year. No additional time off will be awarded due to the significant prize level being awarded.) This award will be included in HR files for consideration in annual performance evaluation.
