Nominations now being accepted for new UAB VIP Award

Written by  Brooke Carbo

UAB VIP 492Since 1978, UAB has recognized outstanding employees for their dedication, hard work and contributions to the university’s success through its Employee of the Month/Year program. The program, which was paused in 2019, has been rebranded and is being relaunched as the UAB Shared Values in Action Program.

The UAB VIP Award will be presented quarterly to three employees whose work exemplifies and embodies one or more of UAB’s shared values of integrity, respect, diversity and inclusiveness, collaboration, excellence and achievement, accountability and stewardship. One of those 12 UAB VIP Award honorees will be selected for the new President’s Award for Excellence in Shared Values beginning in 2022.

“Our shared values are key to the overall success of UAB,” said HR Relations Representative Jimmy Freeman, who oversees the new awards program. “Our staff members who are putting the UAB values into practice deserve to be recognized.”
