Wayne State University Years of Service Honorees

Published Monday, April 17, 2017

Wayne State University recognizes employees for their years of service every five years beginning at ten years of service, concluding with those who have retired from the University. All honorees and retirees, along with their friends, families and colleagues, are invited to attend the Employee Recognition Ceremony where we recognize their contributions to the University. During the ceremony, employees with 10, 15 and 20 years of service will be invited to stand collectively by service year and be recognized by applause. Employees with 25 or more years of service and retirees are recognized with a certificate individually on stage.

Honorees and retirees will also:

  • Have their name included in the Employee Recognition program!
  • Receive a certificate for their years of service! Certificates will be mailed to the honoree's office or home following the program.
  • Select a special gift that corresponds with their years of service! Following the program, catalogs are mailed to eligible employees and retirees and the employee may choose from a variety of awards. Orders may be placed anytime until June 30 of the year they are being recognized in.
  • Choose a photo to keep from the day of the event! This only applies to the 25+ years of service honorees/retirees who walk across stage to accept their award. More information about how to view and select the photo will be distributed after the event.

The Wayne State Employee Recognition Program is coming up on Tuesday, April 25, 2017! This year, we have more than 600 honorees being recognized for their years of service and/or retirement. You likely have friends and colleagues being recognized this year, and we think this is a great opportunity for you to share how they've made an impact during their time here at Wayne State. This small act of support and appreciation will help make their milestone year even more memorable.

Share a story and/or photo about how they have made a difference.
Your kind words will be featured in a short presentation that will play at the beginning of the Employee Recognition ceremony for attendees to enjoy. To submit your story, complete a brief form on the website no later than Wednesday, 4/19.

If you are being honored this year, share your own story!
Submit a memorable moment and photo (optional) to be included in the presentation. Can't make it to the program? The presentation will be available on the website after the 25th.
