Members of Clayton State University staff are nominees for the 2017 Chancellor’s Annual Service Excellence Awards. Erin Nagel, and the entire Career Services team are nominees for the University System of Georgia’s prestigious honor.
The awards recognize and reward employees for demonstrating consistently high levels of performance while accomplishing normal job responsibilities as it relates to service for the past year.
Nagel, who was nominated by Dean of Libraries Gordon Baker, was acknowledged for her increasing patient engagement through unique programming and creative social media outreach.
“I have had the pleasure of seeing Erin bring patrons into the library with her amazing marketing and outreach skills; make the library an exciting and educational place for the students, faculty, staff, and community; and host programs to further the education of the students here at Clayton State University,” Baker said in his nomination.
The staff in Career Services was nominated by their director, Bridgette McDonald. McDonald noted the team’s ability to translate customer service into education through informative, engaging events like the Job and Graduate School Fair, participation in advisory boards and conferences, and partnerships with local chambers of commerce.
“On a daily basis we make things better for our University because we enjoy what we do,” McDonald said in her nomination. “We are one of the offices on campus that regularly says “yes” not just for things that directly involves mission or our services but to things outside the scope of our service model.”
Nominees for the Chancellor’s Annual Service Excellence Awards come from all USG institutions. Winners will be selected on at an awards ceremony on Dec. 5.
“We are recognizing the nominees’ efforts and commitment to our goal of providing outstanding service to our campus community,” said Carolina Amero, assistant vice-president of Auxiliary & Administration Services and Clayton State’s Service Excellence Ambassador. “Exceptional service helps attract students to Clayton State University, allows us to operate more efficiently and effectively, and it creates an environment in which both students and employees can thrive.”
