UF Human Resources is pleased to announce a new and expanded Service Recognition Program to recognize and honor staff for their years of service.

UF will continue to recognize TEAMS and USPS employees for five-year increments of continuous service, based on their most recent date of hire. Under the new program, the university will expand the options for gifts.

Recipients will now receive an email from the UF Bookstore inviting them to select an anniversary gift during their anniversary month. They will then have the option to pick up their gift in person at the UF Bookstore or have it shipped to an address of their choice at no charge.

Additionally, employees being recognized for 25 and 30 years of service during the 2018 calendar year will be honored at an evening event hosted by the President’s Office later this spring.

UFHR will continue to work with department coordinators to provide information about employees who are reaching service milestones each year and to provide other guidance about the new program. Those who have questions in the meantime are encouraged to contact Verlissa Ford in UF Training & Organizational Development at (352) 392-4626 or

We hope our staff members enjoy this newly reimagined program, which is designed to convey our deepest thanks. To learn more, please visit the Service Recognition Program section of UFHR’s website at:
