The University encourages recognition of excellent performance and achievement through the use of both formal and informal rewards. Employee recognition aligns with the University's strategic directions and Ignatian values. In caring for the whole person (cura personalis), we value individuals and embrace their gifts and talents and their contributions to SLU and the community. Employee recognition programs create a positive work environment, increase motivation for employees, and foster a culture of appreciation and value. Employee recognition comes in many forms. It is as simple as saying thank you, giving praise, or presenting awards. We encourage managers and peers to engage in showing appreciation by using our formal and informal resources and programs.
