Dear HR Officer,

Since we are not able to have an in-person event for Employee Appreciation Day this year, we are dedicating the entire month of October to employee appreciation. New for Employee Appreciation Day this year is our Cheers to Peers platform, a simple way to show gratitude to your employees, colleagues and team members. We are writing you today not only to encourage you to participate but to ask that you send an email to your division/unit to encourage your faculty and staff to participate as well.

For your convenience I have included below a draft message that you can send to your division/unit through your listserv or other communication channels to encourage participation. Cheers to Peers messages can be submitted through Oct. 20.

Thanks so much!

Linc Butler
Associate Vice Chancellor, Human Resources

 


 
Draft Email Message

Colleagues:

The University is dedicating the month of October to employee appreciation. I want to encourage all of you to participate in the Cheers to Peers platform, a simple way to show gratitude to your employees, colleagues and team members. 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! I encourage everyone to take a minute to express gratitude to a coworker, employee, supervisor or team and to celebrate the big and small successes of the past year.

To see what else is 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

Thanks for all you do!
