Y-U Rock Employee Recognition Program

Y-U Rock  

Recognizing employees and teams for great work and going above and beyond
Ancillary Services is excited to launch a monthly employee recognition program called Y-U Rock (pronounced Why You Rock).

The Y-U Rock monthly employee recognition program acknowledges employees and teams for great work and going above and beyond their normal job duties. This program provides all York University community members (e.g. staff, student, visitor) with the ability to acknowledge a job well done by any Ancillary employee.

Y-U Rock accepts nominations for any Ancillary Services employee based on six criteria - service excellence, innovation/creativity, initiative, volunteerism, positive attitude or other (for example leadership, commitment, teamwork, health and safety). All Y-U Rock nominations that meet the program criteria will be recognized and receive a YU Rock (pronounced You Rock) certificate of recognition. One of the YU Rock recipients will be selected by random draw to have a spotlight on them, which is a short profile on their nomination or a short biography. A communication of the spotlighted employee along with a listing of all the certificate holders will be posted out via the Ancillary web page, the Y-U Rock MySites for internal Ancillary employees and the designated union posting boards. The YU Rock Spotlight also gives us an opportunity to get to know our Ancillary colleagues.

Y-U Rock nomination forms can be found electronically at www.yorku.ca/csbo for online completion and submission. Paper copies can be picked up and dropped off under the job posting board outside PRB 1055 or by HR Services-CSBO and can be dropped off in any internal mailbox or outside of PRB 1055.

If you have any questions about the Y-U Rock employee recognition program you can send an email to yurock@yorku.ca or contact Catherine Moon-Chong at extension 55317.

YU Rock Spotlight

The July 2019 YU Rock Spotlight goes to Indra Bhim for Service Excellence.  Indra’s nomination and selection as a YU Rock recipient is for taking notice of extra deficiencies and working to addressing them before they became a concern.  She has worked in Custodial Services for just over 16 years. Something you might not know about her is that she is an outstanding mother to a young man attending York University and she is an active member of her community and church.


YU Rock Indra!
