National Employee Appreciation Day and Recognition at UBC

Friday is National Employee Appreciation Day.  There are a lot of ways for everyone to bring recognition to the workplace every day.

Since January, we have been highlighting a number of ways in which departments at UBC focus on recognition. Recognition can come from managers and supervisors, and equally important is recognition between co-workers as well as recognition of managers and supervisors by members of their teams.
