NEED HELP? ONE CALL AWAY, 24 HOURS A DAY 946-7777


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

March 2022 Recipient: Lisa Ward, Building Services
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 2022 Recipients:

The January Exceptional Team was awarded to crews cross multiple units who responded to the KUB water main break on Cumberland Avenue that caused utilities issues and flooding in nearby buildings. Thanks to the quick action of these individuals, the water main break’s effects on campus were kept to a minimum.

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.
All of our Exceptional Team Award recipients can be found on the Facilities Services Facebook Page.
