Employee Recognition


ONE CALL AWAY, 24 HOURS A DAY

The Facilities Services Department currently maintains two employee recognition programs: Employee of the Month and the Exceptional Team Award. You can find out more information about each of these programs and the recipients under the headings below.

Employee of the Month

February 2020 Recipient: Geneva Andrew

Congratulations to Admin Services’ Geneva Andrew as she receives the honor of being named February 2020’s Employee of the Month! Geneva is the first face of Facilities Services, the person who greets our visitors, vendors and employees. She is always smiling – always pleasant, kind, encouraging and considerate.
She is attentive to the needs of those she greets and goes the extra mile to make sure that all feel welcome as they enter our doors.

Geneva is responsible for our mail deliveries within our Facilities Services Complex. She is very efficient and conscientious at that task as well, asking questions and taking direction where needed.

As our interface with Parking Services, Geneva helps secure permits, visitor’s passes and orange dots. She makes sure our visitors are signed in for interviews, meetings and training.

Geneva helps track meetings in Ad Astra for our conference rooms and is the person who puts a schedule of room activity for our convenience.

She is always willing to help out in a crunch and is a terrific team player: always asking how she can help out. We are incredibly lucky to have her as part of our Facilities Services family! 

All of our Employee of the Month recipients can be found on the Facilities Services Facebook Page. You can submit your nomination for employee of the month by using the online form or downloadable PDF.

Exceptional Team Award

January 2019 Recipient: Plumbing & Heavy Equipment

Jan 2020 Exceptional Team

January’s Exceptional Team was honored for their hard work on the RMC renovation at the UT Conference Center. This crew worked diligently to complete the project on time and bring it in under budget. Great job, team!

The Exceptional Team Award is presented to a Facilities Services team whose performance has extended beyond expectations and has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to help achieve the University’s mission.

A team can be designated as a particular subunit or unit, portion of a subunit/unit, or a combination of employees from a number of subunits/units.

Anyone can nominate a Facilities Services Exceptional Team. You can submit your nomination for Exceptional Team by using the online form or https://fs.utk.edu/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/exceptionalform.pdf.
