Reward and Recognition

Employee of the Month

George Mason University's Employee of the Month highlights the hard work and achievements of a Mason administrative/professional faculty, classified staff member, or wage employee who embodies the values of the University. Since 1991, each Employee of the Month has been honored by the University President during a special ceremony. In addition to a personalized plaque and photo taken at their ceremony posted on the Mason Career Opportunities website, each Employee of the Month receives an array of items generously donated by various University departments.
