Awards & Recognition
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill recognizes the collective efforts that all employees contribute to the overall mission of the University and encourage opportunities for those efforts to be acknowledged either peer-to-peer or by management.
The Awards & Recognition program rewards employees for their motivation to continually improve, innovation and creative management of resources, and ability to set and achieve high standards and goals, and being great teammates.
The Office of Human Resources (OHR) administers the following University Recognition awards: Departmental, State Service Recognition, and the Outstanding Encouragement of Learning and Development awards. OHR also promotes and encourages employees to nominate those who consistently go above-and-beyond their job responsibilities for a University Award or a deserving State Wide Award.
The Office of Human Resources maintains an official Awards Registry of all Departmental, State-wide and University Awards. Departmental recognition programs for all employees must be in writing, and approved by the Office of Human Resources. All departmental recognition programs must be registered on the University’s Awards Registry. Departments wishing to get an award approved and added to the Awards Registry must complete and submit the attached Recognition and Awards Registry Data Form.
