Employee Recognition and Engagement

Case Western Reserve University is committed to developing people, creating meaningful relationships & experiences, and offering opportunities for people to come together. Employee Recognition and Engagement Events are an important component to the workforce.

Staff Service Awards

The Department of Human Resources hosts a ceremony annually to honor employees with 10, 25, 35, 45 and 50 years of service to the university. Additionally, recipients of the President’s Award for Distinguished Service and recipients of the Robin Kramer Staff Advisory Committee Volunteer Award are recognized. A list of past recipients of the President’s Award for Distinguished Service can be found on the Staff Advisory Committee website here

The 2023 Virtual Staff Service Awards Program can be accessed electronically here. 

Employee Appreciation Day 

The annual Employee Appreciation Day takes place in March, in conjunction with National Employee Appreciation Day. This is an opportunity for us to say “thank you” to our employees for their hard work and dedication to Case Western Reserve University. We value the importance of our employees and their daily contributions to the university community.

Party on the Quad

Faculty, staff, and students are invited to participate and enjoy the end of summer with a huge party on the Quad. The event is a day full of festivities, food, prizes, music, and contests. Other activities may include corn hole, hula-hoops, and a photo area with Sparty and summer-themed props. This is an opportunity for various parts of campus to come together and appreciate one another for the hard work they have done for the year.
