Dear Faculty and Staff,
On this Employee Appreciation Day, we’d like to express the enormity of our gratitude for your hard work and dedication, especially during a challenging year of transition and uncertainty. At its core, Carolina is its people, and we are grateful for the contributions of all our faculty and staff—those who have been here throughout the course of the pandemic and those who returned after a long time away. All are critical to our success and valuable to our community.
While we had hoped to gather in person for Employee Appreciation Day this fall, it seemed prudent to wait. We look forward to kicking up our heels together with an in-person celebration in the spring. Though we cannot celebrate in our usual ways just yet, we will continue to share our gratitude in other ways until that time comes.
One of the ways we’re showing our gratitude today is through Cheers to Peers—and we’re not alone! Hundreds of our Carolina colleagues have shared notes of gratitude and good deeds! We’ve received over a thousand submissions to our Cheers to Peers messages page! And be sure to check out the Employee Appreciation Day webpage featuring:
- Shout-outs from Carolina leadership
- Tar Heel downloadables like Zoom backgrounds, desktop organizers and to-do lists
- Photographs of activities past and present
Thank you again for all you do to make Carolina a great place to work and every day a great day to be a Tar Heel!
We appreciate you—today and every day!
Hark the sound,
Human Resources and Equal Opportunity and Compliance
