Stanford celebrates you workmark

Staff who celebrate service milestones deserve to be recognized for their contributions to Stanford’s mission. Stanford Celebrates You: Recognizing Staff Careers offers a suite of institutional recognition and commemorative awards.


Recognition by Length of Service

Stanford Celebrates You shares institutional recognition with staff who have a service milestone with congratulatory messages and awards:




1 year

Digital congratulations message from President and Provost

A digital message is sent in the month the staff member celebrates their first service anniversary (begins in fall quarter 2018)

Starting at five years and in five-year increments thereafter

Choice of service pin (design updated) or comparable award

An email is sent to the staff member shortly after their service anniversary, with an invitation to visit a secure portal to select an award (began in mid-July 2018)

Commemorative Yearbook with congratulatory messages from President and Provost

A printed yearbook is presented as part of local staff service recognition celebrations (begins in fall 2018 and will occur as local celebrations occur throughout FY19 and ongoing)

Starting at 25 years and in five-year increments thereafter

Acrylic numeral award

Certificate signed by President and Provost

An acrylic award with the number of service years, along with a certificate signed by the President and Provost is presented at the Stanford Celebrates You recognition event in the year after the service milestone is achieved

Annual Event: Stanford Celebrates You recognition ceremony 

We recognize service milestones that active, benefits-eligible staff members have achieved in the previous calendar year in an event that occurs each spring. Our honorees who have achieved service milestones of 25 years or more, in five-year increments, are celebrated at a special recognition event. 

Stanford Celebrates You Program Management

Our program is funded and managed by University Human Resources on behalf of Stanford University. Employee Support Programs & Services works in partnership with school and unit human resources managers to make it all happen.
