At all-staff meetings held in November 2019, Library Human Resources acknowledged one UCR Library employee for her outstanding contributions.
Acquisitions Accounting and Administrative Assistant Michelle Xu was included in the seventh announcement of library team members who were recognized through the KUDOS program.
Under the KUDOS program, non-probationary staff and academic employees at the UCR Library can be nominated by a peer for actions or contributions related to the UCR Library's mission that have a significant, positive impact on colleagues, library users, or others.
Nominations were submitted anonymously by library non-probationary staff and academic employees, and then were reviewed by members of Library Cabinet to determine which staff members would receive the KUDOS awards.
Xu's nomination form stated the following:
"Everyday that Michelle walks into the office, she is motivated to take on the tasks at hand and is ready to fulfill her responsibilities. Acquisitions Accounting is a fast-paced, highly-engaged environment with a demanding workload. As Michelle’s time has been limited in the last few weeks, the work needed to get done to meet certain deadlines has been completed, showing me that Michelle has taken on a sense of personal ownership and purpose finding a way to get the work done. Michelle’s sense of ownership also inspires fellow team members to show the same level of commitment. The energy and initiative that Michelle brings to the workplace serves as a powerful tool for exhibiting her dedication and commitment to the Library."
Please join us in celebrating Michelle's contributions!
