Information for Staff Learning Sessions

UNT is offering a chance for our beloved staff to learn new business skills, help maintain work-life blance, and learn new hobbies!

Don't forget to thank a Staff Member                                                                                                  

One of the most effective ways to express appreciation is saying “thank you”. Even if most of the duties one performs are a normal part of the job, hearing thanks in a spontaneous and timely way can mean a lot to anyone. Show your gratitude and acknowledge an outstanding colleague through the “Thank a Staff Member” program. Take a minute or two to fill out a simple form by March 17 and submit to Human Resources by email. Responses will be collected and sent to the staff member before the Staff Appreciation Luncheon. Excerpts from those forms may also be a part of a presentation during the luncheon on March 30.
