  • Team projects
  • Case studies
  • Skill building
  • Expert speakers and panels
  • Peer to peer consultation
  • Networking Opportunities

Employee of the Month
The UAB Employee of the Month/Year Program seeks to recognize and reward those staff members whose contributions best exemplify these traits. In doing so, we not only show appreciation for outstanding individual achievement, but more importantly, we communicate to all, publicly and consistently, the significance of these values to the University.

Employee Perks
The UAB Employee Perks Program offers great deals and discounts from a number of local businesses and franchises. All discounts are for current UAB staff and faculty and you must present your UAB Employee Badge at time of redemption for most vendors. Other vendors may require additional information (discount code, email address, etc.) to verify employment at UAB. You can find specific details about each discount in the listings in each category.

The AWARE Program (Always Working to Advocate, Retain & Employ) provides disability-management services when an employee’s job is affected by a physical, mental, or emotional impairment. Through a unique partnership between UAB and the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services (ADRS), the AWARE Program assists current employees and their departments, job seekers going through the application process, and employees returning from long-term disability or medical leave. In addition, the AWARE Program coordinates requests for reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
