Culture of Recognition

Building a culture of excellence includes recognizing WSU employees at every level of their career in meaningful ways. From simple thank-yous to formal celebrations, we come together to encourage, reward and celebrate fellow Warriors throughout the year:

Employee Recognition Ceremony

Our annual Employee Recognition Ceremony celebrating retirees, value award winners and those who reached milestone years of service in fiscal year 2023 was held on campus on April 24, 2024!

Employee Recognition Week

Employee Recognition Week is a week long celebration of our WSU values. Each day focuses on a value and provides opportunities to celebrate fellow Warriors. Employee Recognition Week was November 13 - 17, 2023!

Daily & Informal Recognition

Together, we build a culture of recognition by finding formal and informal ways to say, "Thank-you" for helping achieve our mission. Daily recognition may include Culture of Care Notes, sending a personal thank-you or public praise. Click here for more recognition resources
