Team Recognition
November 2006

Human Resources Department
& Dr. Teri Hill

November 2006!

Here's what the HR nominator had to say:

Beth Arntson and her team consistently promote the interests of RCTC through the work they do with current and with prospective employees. It is especially fitting, as a new school year is successfully launched, to recognize the efforts of this talented group to manage the myriad tasks that go on behind the scenes of such a launch.

Congratulations, Human Resources Department!

Employee Individual Recognition
November 2006

Here's what Dr. Teri Hill's nominator had to say:

Teri provides knowledgeable and informed expertise to all those around her. Not only is she helpful but, she consistently shares her knowledge with all those around. She strived to make RCTC, a better place to work and helps to enable colleagues to be fully informed about procedures, responsibilities, and rights.

Teri will receive an "up front" parking spot at UCR for the month of November.
Thanks, Teri, for helping make RCTC great!

Thank you,

The Employee Recognition Task Force



Are your colleagues or co-workers demonstrating extra effort, exemplary service, or demonstrated expertise in your department or on a committee? Are they working on a special project for their job/department/college or in the community? If so, please consider nominating them for "Best Bee of the Month."


The Employee Relations Committee (ERC) has implemented a process to recognize and reward employees for outstanding job performances. Recognitions can be awarded:

  1. Work Team Recognition. Recognition would include committee work, community service work, and department achievements and could also highlight something new the group has done or is working on. Work Teams who receive this award will be recognized through publicizing the award in the Crossings, on a "recognition" web site, possibly on our digital wall, their very own "pizza party" and gifts.
  2. Individual Recognition. This is a modified reinstatement of the "Bee Award" started by Bonnie Mercer. Recognition would include committee work, community service work, and individual achievements, extra effort, exemplary service or demonstrated expertise in their field. Individuals who receive this award will be recognized through publicizing the award in the Crossings, on the "recognition" web site, possibly on our digital wall, and gifts.
  3. Write Personal Notes. All employees are encouraged to write notes of recognition and appreciation to their colleagues and co-workers. This is a simple gesture which has a positive effect on the sender and receiver.


  • Anyone can nominate an employee or work team. The nomination remains active indefinitely.
  • The nomination form should include a narrative of why the nominee(s) merit being named Employee/Work Team {Best Bee(s)} of the Month based on criteria the nominator feels is relevant.
  • The nominee(s) may be any employee of Rochester Community and Technical College.
