ESUP thanks its unsung heroes

Last month ESUP hosted a recognition event for its staff to thank them for their effort to make the program a success. One of the highlights of the event was the acknowledgement of ESUP’s “Unsung Heroes.” ESUP employees nominated their co-workers who go above and beyond. According to Santiago Fernandez-Gimenez, ESUP director of change management, “We wanted to give staff members a way to recognize our colleagues for doing things that motivate and engage us to be our best selves in the workplace.” 

Staff nominated their colleagues expressing admiration and appreciation for the things they do. The unsung heroes were recognized for reasons ranging from upbeat positive attitudes to waking up at 4 a.m. every Wednesday to get to the Twin Cities from Duluth.

The four unsung heroes recognized at the January event represented nearly 40 of their colleagues nominated among the ESUP staff. Fernandez-Gimenez put it best when he said, “The fact that we had so many staff members named as unsung heroes is a testament to the great collegiality and teamwork that ESUP is fostering here at the University.”
