Employee Recognition

At Pace University, we value each and every staff member. We realize that our success is the result of people taking action and that our true power is in the continuous flow of initiative, skill, and insight from our employees.

The Employee Recognition program provides an opportunity to formally recognize your many accomplishments. Whether reaching a milestone in Years of Service, being nominated for a Special Award, or receiving recognition for simple achievements in your every day role through the YES I Make It Happen Recognition Program, your contribution to Pace is important and it is noticed.

2018 Employee Recognition Ceremonies

Law School: Thursday, November 1, 2018, from 3:00pm-5:00pm, in the Tudor Room

New York City: Thursday, November 8, 2018, from 3:00pm-5:00pm, in the Bianco Room

Pleasantville: Monday, November 12, 2018, from 3:00pm-5:00pm, in the Gottesman/Boudreaux Room

Service Awards:  As in past years, we will be providing a choice of fantastic gifts, for all honorees at each service level, which will continue to include the traditional pins and “Hitchcock” chair.  The University’s recognition vendor is Tiffany & Co.  If you are an honoree in 2018, in the fall you will receive a personalized email from Tiffany & Co with information on how to select and order a gift at your specific service level. 

I hope you will nominate both individuals and teams recognizing their accomplishments, win some prizes, and attend the recognition events.  It is a wonderful opportunity to come together and show our support and appreciation for the many great successes of our faculty and staff.  I look forward to seeing you at your campus event.
