Staff in the Spotlight

Staff in the Spotlight nominations are accepted for any OSU staff member who exemplifies what it means to be a Buckeye and is in good standing with the University.  Staff may be nominated by a supervisor, colleague, or campus customer.  Each nomination should include the following information:

  • Specific reason for recognition
  • Why the employee deserves to be recognized in the USAC Spotlight
  • How the nominee demonstrates  The Ohio State University shared values.  Give a specific example using one or more of the Shared Values
  • The positive impact the employee has at The Ohio State University

Each month, USAC will recognize 1 -2 employees through various media channels, including the USAC newsletter and social media accounts.  Nominations can be submitted by completing the  Staff Spotlight recognition form available on the USAC website and must be received by USAC no later than the 1st Friday of each month.  The USAC Staff Affairs subcommittee will review the nominations and choose the employees for recognition.  Once chosen, the winners will be contacted via email with a list of “get to know you” questions to answer for their Staff Spotlight article. Winners will also be awarded with a $50 gift card, courtesy of USAC and the OSU Office of Human Resources.

This is a great way to recognize your staff members or colleagues for their great work ethic, hard work or volunteer work to help fellow Buckeyes.  To have a colleague considered for our Staff Spotlight, remember to submit your nominations.
