Describe what this team did that embodied the Berkeley Operating Principle:
I would like to recognize the outstanding contributions by the ERSO B&FS Team. The Purchasing, Reimbursement Services, and Shipping & Receiving Teams have demonstrated commitment, teamwork, and tremendous efforts during a challenging period due to significant staffing gaps. The Team has pulled together and worked diligently to fulfill orders and complete reimbursements within our service level agreements.

Thank you all for your hard work and perseverance over the past several months; your commitment to service in support of the University's mission is impressive and appreciated.

Excellent Employee to Nominate: Alice P. Wong Nominee's Unit: Team 2
Criteria: Above & Beyond
Customer Service Example:

I've had the pleasure of working with Alice since our college was assigned to Team 2. I can not put into words how much I appreciate Alice and the calm, clear way she handles every request, change or mis-upload.

She is always patient with myself and our guests.
She is always clear in what she needs and the reasons behind them.

Thank you, Alice!!

Excellent Employee to Nominate: Mary Courtney
Nominee's Unit: ERSO Team 2
Criteria: Problem Solver
Customer Service Example:

Recently, our Purchasing Supervisor was out on vacation and Mary had received a complicated Purchase Order request, that needed to have immediate attention. The order was for numerous items, payableto several Vendors, & needed to be paid for using several payment methods. As her immediate Teams cards were not all available for usage, she requested permission to utilize our T&E Staff, to assist with the processing of this request. She went to each Staff member, explained the situation and in addition, communicated the back-end process, so as to have clean accurate results. This type of "quick thinking" and Team management, resulted in our Vendors getting paid as well as our customers receiving their goods in the time requested.

Excellent Employee to Nominate: Vicky Yasenchok
Nominee's Unit: Team 2 HR Operations
Criteria: Demonstrates Commitment
Customer Service Example:

Vicky was given a report of over 100 expiring appointments. She achieved a 100% response rate in contacting supervisors to determine if appointments will be extended. This means the students will get paid on time and that payroll and HR wont have to spend time following up with students who submit a timecard but don't have an appointment in the system. Our whole team will benefit thanks to Vicky's hard work and diligence (it took some supervisor's 4 emails before they replied). Thanks Vicky!

Excellent Employee to Nominate: Julie Aquino
Nominee's Unit: ERSO Payroll
Criteria: Team Player
Customer Service Example:

During the extended absence of our teammate, Julie assisted Sam in completing the long-overdue ( very boring drudgery !!! ) filing of payroll documents. Since we have no student helpers, Julie and Sam had to carve out a significant amount of time from busy schedules to accomplish this task. Julie steadfast commitment and hard work enables our teammate to return to a clean state and fresh start on this matter. The contribution cannot be overstated because we are so heavily audited and need to have all payroll documents organized and easily accessible. Thank you so much , Julie for your support to the ERSO-Payroll team.

Excellent Employee to Nominate: Sandra Guiton
Nominee's Unit: ERSO Payroll
Criteria: Demonstrates Commitment
Customer Service Example:

During the extended absence of our teammate, Sam organized, managed and succeeded in completing long-overdue ( very boring and monotonous !!! ) filing of payroll documents. Along with Julies's help, they made the back-log disappear in order to provide a clean slate and fresh start for our much-missed-soon-to-return teammate. Sam demonstrated compassion and determination along with just-plain elbow grease and hard work. The contribution cannot be overstated because we are so heavily audited; having all documents in the right place and easily accessible is crucial. Many, many thanks!

Describe what this team did that embodied the Berkeley Operating Principle selected above:

This team deserves recognition for the diligent effort of reviewing UCPATH processes. Not much time was given for ERSO to review all processes and this team pulled together, set a plan and worked through complicated process maps. Despite the lack of clarity, they went about their work with a positive attitude and team spirit.

The "Poster" Team deserves this award for their creativity in developing a poster for the RA forum. They developed a wonderful poster outlining the ERSO Faculty Orientation Process. The poster looks great and exemplifies the benefits of this process and how it helps get our faculty off to a great start with ERSO!
