Trustees' Award for Outstanding Staff Member
The Trustees' Award recognizes outstanding work and dedication by a member of the staff in support of the mission of Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Employees are nominated by their peers, and the Board of Trustees approves one or more winners. Recipients are awarded a cash prize and a plaque in their honor is displayed in the Rubin Campus Center.
Long Service: Valuing Experience and Expertise
At WPI, we take great pride in our long-service employees. Employees are recognized at five-year intervals, beginning after the completion of ten years of service. In each year that a long-service anniversary is celebrated after fifteen years, an additional week of vacation will be added to annual vacation accrual for that year. This anniversary vacation must be used within the fiscal year following the year in which the service anniversary occurs.
Ice Cream Social
Our annual Ice Cream Social offers an afternoon of socializing and celebrating our employees. Spot Award recipients, long service employees, and the recipients of our Trustees' Award for Outstanding Staff Member are recognized, along with additional shout-outs.
