Yum! Kudos Program seeks nominees deserving of recognition, sweet treats

kudos-2Halloween trick-or-treaters are making big plans for four weeks from tonight.

People in the NIU College of Education who deserve some candy in their lives need not wait that long.

Members of the College of Education’s Staff Council created the Kudos Program a few years ago to recognize excellent Civil Service and Supportive Professional Staff employees.

The candy and kind words delivered to winners helped to boost morale and energize everyone to maintain and improve a happy and productive workplace.

Nominations of candy-worthy colleagues welcome in four categories, all of which result in a corresponding sweet treat.

  • Life Savers (“You are a lifesaver!”)
  • Snickers bars (“You keep us smiling and snickering!”)
  • Kit Kat bars (“You deserve a break!”)
  • Extra gum (“Thanks for going the extra mile!”)

Weekly winners will receive notes that can include messages from their nominators (who can remain anonymous) or just the simple catchphrases.

Ready to honor someone? Email pwielert@niu.edu or crumpacker@niu.edu with those names, departments and messages!
