Give a shout-out to your long-serving staff members

Each spring at the Long-Service Recognition Dinner, Yale’s leadership team formally recognizes staff members celebrating five-year milestone anniversaries 25 years and up. Be sure to also express your congratulations: Read three ways to celebrate your honoree on a milestone anniversary.

Need a list of your staff members’ anniversaries for your department? Contact your business office and request the “Staff Service Recognition – Yale” report in Workday.

Recognizing your staff—one size doesn’t fit all.

Gallup research found only 10% of employees report being asked about their preferences for how and how often they receive recognition. To be sure that you are recognizing your team members in the way that is most meaningful to them, please download and share the recognition preferences card to learn how they prefer to be recognized. Keep cards on file and reference them often!
