Past High Fives - 2019

4th Quarter

Names of People on the Team: Sarah Gaugler, Anthony Stamos, Anne Anderssen, Angela Brito-Baldwin, Sanchita Pal, and Veronika Blair
Team Unit: Research
Which Operating Principle did this team embody? We include and excel together

This focus group spent a LOT of time re-working and compilinginformation for the Pre-Award Resources (PAR) documents: Common Proposal Anomalies by Sponsor (COMPASS) and SPO/IAO - RA Guidelines/Best Practices. We met every week for 10 weeks and spent countless hours assembling, organizing, and compiling the 2 documents to simplify and provide useful tools in proposal preparation. We had such an awesome team of folks with varying expertise, so it made it not only an educational experience, but a fun one, too. Thanks so much for all your help team!

3rd Quarter

Names of People on the Team: Bob Miller, Mary Courtney
Team Unit: Purchasing
Which Operating Principle did this team embody? We focus on services

Bob & Mary really came through for one of our end users today but as is frequently the case, no one will ever know but us. Within 2 hours of being notified of an urgent UPS COD fee in the amount of $2300, Bob and Mary arranged to pay the fee by phone so the package would not be sent back to China. They saved the day on $7500 order. ERSO Receiving appreciates the quick response when the need arises.

1st Quarter

Names of People on the Team: Rebecca Foster, Cathy Weaver, Alberto Marcelo, Joel Spitzer, Nadya Abo-Shaeer (although Nadya is not an ERSO team member, she is supported by us and is providing training support to our region)
Team Unit: Cross Functional
Which Operating Principle did this team embody? We are accountable to each other

This team of folks have willingly volunteered their time to be trainers for the new HR/Payroll UCPath system. They have devoted a significant amount of hours to learning all the training material (which still changes frequently) so that they can train the entire campus on a particular UCPath module. Not only are they dedicating significant amounts of time but they are also expected to maintain the same level of customer service that is required for their regular position here on campus. They have volunteered for such a big job and the campus as a whole will be better off because of it. I hope they can win this High Five as a small token of our appreciation for all the support they are providing to the campus and will provide to our region in the future.

Names of People on the Team: Sarah Gaugler, Damon Hinson, Derek Johnson, Anthony Stamos, Judy Tam, Leslie Goldstein
Team Unit: Research
Which Operating Principle did this team embody? We imagine and innovate

The Cal Answers Team met from August-November weekly to learn and navigate the Cal Answers System in order to produce a training (user's guide and hands on) for Research Administrators on how to use the new system for all their financial reporting needs due to the retirement of BAIRS. The team worked very hard and focused on delivering this in time for people to use it while we still had BAIRS to cross test. They deserve a high five!
