Milestone anniversary recognition events to begin on June 3

The Office of Work, Life and Engagement has announced this year’s Staff Recognition Program. Johns Hopkins University staff celebrating milestone anniversaries or who are retiring will be recognized at the annual series of recognition events in June. Honorees may select from a variety of custom-designed service awards, and orders must be placed—by phone, mail or online—by Friday, April 9.

Eligible to be recognized are full- and part-time staff who have completed five, 10, 15 and 20 or more years of service with the university, in increments of five years, and whose service anniversary falls between July 11, 2009, and July 10, 2010. Additional information about the Staff Recognition Program, including a list of 2010 honorees, information about eligibility guidelines and award ordering, can be found at www.hopkinsworklife

Staff who believe they are eligible for recognition this year but are not listed, or have not received instructions for ordering their award, should contact Jeff Pratt at jeffpratt@jhu.edu or 443-997-6060.

Staff retiring before July 10, 2010, must notify the Office of Work, Life and Engagement of their retirement by April 16 to be included. Retiring staff with 25 or more years of service will receive instructions on selecting and ordering a service award in late April.
