Nominate an ITS employee today!
Golden Gator Synopsis
Every quarter ITS selects a staff member(s) or a team as a recipient for our Golden Gator Award. The winner(s) will be announced at our quarterly Town Hall meeting.
How Does it Work
If a person or team provides excellent service or leadership, you can nominate them for a shout-out on our shout-out page. There are several categories to choose from when submitting a nomination, including Calm in the Eye of the Storm, the Behind the Scenes Wonder, Above & Beyond the Call, Customer Whisperer, Unwavering Dedication to Service, Unexpected Leader, and other, where you may write in another category of your own choosing. Once you select your preferred category, you can then compose an explanation behind your shout-out submission. Please include your name, department, and email address.
Below is an example of what a nomination may look like:

Kindly be informed Jane helped us tremendously to resolve one issue in CS. We would like to give our sincere special recognition to them. Without their expertise and willingness to help this communication would not be going out today. I appreciate their efforts more than I can say.
What Happens Next
Once we receive your nomination, we will notify the nominee(s) and their supervisors letting them know they’ve been nominated. ITS will then post the nomination to our ITS shout-out wall. The shout-out will be listed under the quarter in which they were received. At the end of the corresponding quarter, ITS’s Staff Advisory group and one member from outside ITS will meet to vote on all the nominations received. Based on the tally of votes, we will determine who will receive our Golden Gator Award for the quarter. We will then notify you that your nominee was chosen as a winner. The winner(s) will be announced at our Town Hal meeting and listed as such on our shout-out wall.
