NEED HELP? 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

May 2021 Recipient: Mike Huber, Sanitation Safety
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

April 2021 Recipients:

We are honored to present the April Exceptional Team Award to the Coordinators and Estimators of Construction Services. This team does a lot of work behind the scenes, most of which is not openly celebrated. They work around the clock to balance dozens of projects, and there’s no team who deserves this honor more.

This team includes: Emily Lingerfelt, Kenny Lane, Danny Hall, Dean Wessels, Jeff Barnes, Rick Caldwell, Chip Pennoyer, Paulette Prinston and Wes Hinshaw

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.
