Reward and Recognition Enhancements

In response to feedback from surveys and focus groups, Reward & Recognition is making some exciting changes to help enhance the recognition culture in schools and units.  You will see enhancements in the following areas:

There are now four tiers of impact awards – Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.  The tiers are based on project size and length and provide guidance and structure for departments looking to award their high performing faculty and staff. 


The survey and focus groups said that Mason’s faculty and staff want recognition that’s free, fast, and easy, and we’ve got it for you in the form of eCards. Recognize a colleague or team member on their birthday, to say thank you, extend congratualtions, and more!

We’re empowering units to recognize their own teams for cross-functional and cross-departmental collaboration by showing us your Team Spirit

If you have any questions about any of the Reward and Recognition enhancements, please contact Beth Baroody at 3-2739 or
