Employee Recognition

Employee Recognition

Campus Enterprises employees go out of their way daily to create extraordinary guest experiences and improve our services at NC State. We strive to acknowledge our employees’ outstanding contributions through a variety of awards and recognition programs.

The program’s four key features are its ability to highlight positive behaviors that Campus Enterprises desires for other employees to emulate, tangibly reward employees, ensure employees that their supervisors and peers see and appreciate that employee’s contributions, and lastly,  foster a “thank you” culture.

NC State Awards for Excellence

The NC State University Awards for Excellence is the most prestigious honor bestowed upon non-faculty employees.

The NC State Awards for Excellence commence each year when all colleges and business units across campus select employees to be recognized as Awards for Excellence recipients. In addition to receiving eight hours of paid time off and a $250 cash-award from the respective college or business unit, recipients are also honored at the NC State University Awards for Excellence ceremony, where up to twelve individuals receive special distinction as recipients of the NC State University Awards for Excellence.

The twelve possible recipients of the NC State University Awards for Excellence receive an additional eight hours of paid time off, a cash-award for $1,000, and an engraved award plaque. The NC State University Awards for Excellence recipients are also submitted for consideration for the Governor’s Awards for Excellence, which is the highest honor awarded to a State of North Carolina employee.
