Rewards and Recognition

As part of the BEST Region commitment to focus on their staff, they will continue to recognize staff for exemplary behaviors and rewared them for outstanding performance and dedication to their clients, campus partners, and to each other. 

Here are some ways to recognize BEST staff who embody the Berkeley Operating Principles

There are a couple programs to consider whether you work at BRS or at one of the campus units the BEST Region supports: 

  • The High Fives Program - For staff who go above and beyond to provide service. High Fives nominations will be reviewed by the BEST High Fives Committee and recipients will receive a gift card.
  • SPOT Awards - To recognize a BEST staff member for a larger achievement, consider nominating them for a SPOT Award as part of Berkeley's Staff Appreciation and Recognition (STAR) Awards program. All BEST nominations will be carefully reviewed to determine eligibility.
    • The current SPOT Award nomination period ends Wednesday, June 1, 2022.
