University F&A

Employees recognized for commitment

The university’s Finance & Administration Division celebrated its monthly Employee Appreciation Event Sept. 16 to recognize staff from the Engineering & Facilities, Finance, and Operations departments who were nominated for their commitment to MUSC Excellence. Each month employees with qualifying nominations for the Employee Recognition Program (ERP) during the preceding month are recognized at the monthly event with an MUSC Excellence gift. Employees of the Quarter are selected by the Rewards & Recognition Committee (RRC) from the eligible nominations received during the quarterly period. The nominations exhibit outstanding work-related behavior or activities relating to the five pillars of Excellence (people, service, quality, finance, and growth).
