Dear Carolina Community,
It’s time to celebrate our employees and all that you do for Carolina!
While we had hoped to gather in person to acknowledge your hard work, we still want you to know just how much we appreciate your perseverance through a year of transition and uncertainty. To recognize all you do to make Carolina a community of excellence, we’re dedicating the entire month of October to employee appreciation.
To see what’s happening this month, be sure to check out the full calendar of events on the Employee Appreciation Day webpage, which also features:
- Shout-outs from Carolina leadership
- Tar Heel downloadables like Zoom backgrounds, desktop organizers and to-do lists
- Photographs of activities past and present
- Messages to and from colleagues through Cheers to Peers
What is Cheers to Peers?
New for Employee Appreciation Day this year is our Cheers to Peers platform, a simple way to give a shout-out to your Carolina colleagues. Thank a coworker who makes your day a little brighter or recognize a team member for always going the extra mile by filling out the Cheers to Peers online form to send a short message of big thanks.
Cheers to Peers messages can be submitted from Oct. 1–20 and will be published on the Employee Appreciation Day webpage on Oct. 22. You will be able to view and search all messages—the ones you’ve sent and the ones you’ve received!
We encourage everyone to take a minute to express gratitude to a coworker, supervisor or team and to celebrate the big and small successes of the past year. We want to hear from you!
While we wish we could all be together in the beautiful Carolina fall weather to celebrate all that you do in support of our University, know that we remain grateful, and we look forward to one day resuming our in-person celebration.
Thank you for all that you do to make Carolina a great place to work and every day a great day to be a Tar Heel!
Hark the sound,
Human Resources and Equal Opportunity and Compliance
