Lineberger Building and Marsico HallUNC Lineberger has created an employee recognition program to honor staff for accomplishments that are deemed to be above and beyond the responsibilities of their position.

The Lineberger Spotlight Award will recognize staff members who demonstrate excellence in support of the cancer center’s mission and priorities. All faculty and staff are eligible to nominate a staff member. The staff member and their supervisor are notified of the nomination, and each recipient is eligible to win the Top of the Line(berger) Award.

Three times a year, the cancer center’s associate and assistant directors will review the list of Spotlight Award winners and their achievements and select the two people they believe are most deserving of the Top of the Line(berger) Award. Each recipient will be given a $100 prize.

“The cancer center is very fortunate to have so many highly dedicated staff who every day demonstrate their commitment to our mission. We want to recognize and celebrate this excellence,” said Wendy Sarratt, DrPH, associate director of human resources and employee relations.

All faculty and staff members can nominate a staff member using the online submission form.

Sarratt said it is valuable to provide an opportunity for recognition from those who see firsthand the work being done by their colleagues that might otherwise go unnoticed. “Our staff does so much behind the scenes and this is one way to bring them into the spotlight and show our appreciation.”
