On-The-Spot Reward Program for Staff

Managers will have a new process in 2020 to recognize important events in staff performance and contributions with an Amazon Gift Card “on the spot”. The Gift Cards will be available from $50 up to $350 in $50 increments for immediate use. The cost of the cards are charged to the manager’s budget (so it really is from her/him!) and the value is taxable income to the recipient, which will be processed in the next payroll or two after receipt. 

From previous Brandeis work-life surveys, we know that recognition is very important to staff. We’re excited to be providing another recognition tool for Managers and Supervisors.

Effective: January 1, 2020

Bargaining unit members should inquire about the relevance of these programs to their unit.
