Contratulations to our 2012 SITES Award Winners
Employee Recognition Program
The University of Texas at Austin Facilities Services and Project Management and Construction Services (PMCS) Employee Recognition Program has been developed based on its vision and mission to recognize employees for outstanding service in our journey to become a world class facilities management organization as we continue to provide support and exceed customer expectations.
The Employee Recognition Program began in 2006. The 2012 committee consists of employees of both Facilities Services and PMCS: Jack Gracia, Don Havins, Theresa Kahlke, David Kruse, Laurie Lentz, and Constance Meyer.
In 2010, the SITES program expanded to include a group award that recognizes employees who did exemplary work as part of a team.
SITES individual and team awards are a peer-to-peer Facilities Services and PMCS program that allows employees who work behind the scenes to recognize each other. Employees must be employed by The University of Texas at Austin Facilities Services/PMCS a minimum of twelve (12) continuous months to be eligible. The awards are not available to the directors, associate/assistant directors, or current members of the Employee Recognition Committee.
The Facilities Services and PMCS directors and associate/assistant directors present the awards annually to SITES recipients. Winners of the individual awards receive a monetary award of $500 (pre-withholding), 8 hours of paid leave, a certificate of recognition, a personal gift and a group photo with the recipient names engraved on two wall plaques; one is displayed in FC1 main entrance and one at Pickle Research Campus. Winners of the team award receive a group meal, 8 hours of paid leave, and a certificate of recognition.
The Employee Recognition SITES Awards recognize employees who not only perform their daily job duties but also go above and beyond the call of duty based on one or more of Facilities Services' and PMCS’ shared Core Values.
The Employee Recognition Committee is the standing committee that oversees the program. Committee members serve for a term of one year with the exception of the chairperson and the facilitator, who serve a minimum of two years. SITES Award recipients may be asked to serve on future recognition committees, to suggest new ideas and continue to keep the program growing.
