Facilities remodel crew recognized for hard work

December 20, 2011

Employees from Facilities Management's Remodel Crew enjoyed recognition by the CSU Employee Appreciation Board Dec. 14 at the Red Carpet Room of the Durrell Center.

“These guys do great work!” said nominator Bob Schur of CSU’s Policy and Compliance office. “They are very professional and courteous, show up when promised and pay attention to details. They are very respectful about not letting their work get in the way of the customer’s work whenever possible. And they always seem to have a smile and a can-do attitude.

“With recent budget cuts, we have to repurpose space to meet changing program needs without spending a lot of money. We could not do it without the efficient service of the ‘revenue crew.’”

The group, who usually takes just 15 minutes for lunch most days, enjoyed an hour-long pizza lunch as a thank you for all of their hard work and dedication. Because they work in small teams, they seldom have a chance for everyone to meet together.

The CSU Employee Appreciation Board, originally formed in 1968, recognizes employees for their hard work and promotes community spirit among CSU faculty and staff through events such as breakfasts or luncheons. Also, the Board each month hosts a prize drawing for all faculty and staff who submit an entry form – including a coveted reserved parking space for a full month.

Monthly recognition of outstanding unit

The board meets monthly during the academic year to discuss and plan employee recognition events, as well as to help promote University events. One of the main objectives of the board is the monthly recognition of a group, entity, or college.
