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

Mark your calendars! Our annual Employee Recognition Ceremony celebrating retirees, value award winners and those who reached milestone years of service in fiscal year 2023 will be held in person, on campus in Spring 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 will be in November, 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 inclue Culture of Care Notes, sending a personal thank-you or public praise. Click here for more recognition resources
