The folks over at Donor Relations came up with a unique way to encourage engagement within their team. Ivette Mancha, director for University Advancement, created the concept of the Ibis Recognition Award: a vintage UM hat that is passed to an outstanding employee.
The hat, which was purchased on Ebay, serves as a fun token of the team's commitment to employee engagement. So far, four employees have been awarded with the hat, and a new awardee will be recognized soon!
How can your team show appreciation among team members? Perhaps your team could do something similar to the Ibis Recognition Award. You also might want to consider sending colleagues a ThankU card using the online tool developed by the Office of Institutional Culture. You can access the ThankU tool by going to this link.
