Staff Council announces Peay Pride Points employee incentive program

December 16, 2003


The beginning of a new year also will see the start of a new staff employee incentive program: Peay Pride Points.

Staff and faculty will be given five points per month to award to deserving staff members. These points will accumulate in the employees point banks until the last week of November 2004, when they can be used to bid on gift items displayed on–what else?– PeayBay, a part of the newly created Employee Incentive Web Site.

The beginning of a new year also will see the start of a new staff employee incentive program: Peay Pride Points.

Staff and faculty will be given five points per month to award to deserving staff members. These points will accumulate in the employees' point banks until the last week of November 2004, when they can be used to bid on gift items displayed on—what else?— PeayBay, a part of the newly created Employee Incentive Web Site.

The highest bidders will be awarded their prizes at the Staff Council's Holiday Luncheon. In addition, the year's top 10 highest point-earners will be entered into a grand prize drawing, according to Trish Halstead, a member of the Staff Council's Employee Incentive Program Task Force and secretary 2 for the Office of Student Life and Leadership.

Any leftover points will remain in the employee's point bank.

Only staff members who've worked as regular, full-time employees for at least six months are eligible to receive Peay Pride Points.

Faculty and staff can award a maximum of three out of their five points to any one employee. You cannot commend the same person two months in a row.

Halstead says all points awarded and earned will be tracked on the Employee Incentive Program Web site, which will be accessible only through on-campus computers. Points will be awarded based on specific categories of commendations (i.e. good job performance). Employees are forbidden from giving, selling or trading their allotted points. They also are also not allowed to solicit points, either for themselves or another employee.

FYI: No state funds are being used to provide incentives or gifts for employees in the operation of this program.
