Recognition Program

Celebrating Your Achievement

A Service Award Program that Empowers You to Choose

The service awards program for regular and extended temporary employees has changed for 2012 and beyond. With approval from the President's Cabinet we have contracted with an outside vendor to administer our program.

The program is a choice program, today's preferred method of recognition. You will have the opportunity to select from a broad selection of awards at each anniversary level. Every recipient will receive something personally meaningful, something that will become a lasting reminder of Gallaudet's esteem. You may choose to have your award personalized with the Gallaudet logo.

The TharpeRobbins Company was chosen because of their experience in the field of recognition, because of a broad selection of quality awards in their program, because of cost effectiveness, and because they are known for their dedication to customer service.

You will still be recognized by your supervisor and presented with a certificate of recognition for your anniversary milestone starting with 5 years and continuing every five years up to 50 years. In addition, you will receive a small gift with the Gallaudet logo and a catalog of awards with levels according to your years of service.

You may place your order for your award via the web at https://orders.tharpe.com or through a live customer service care center, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week . Call 1-886-587-0989. You will be given a log-on and password at the time of your award.

It is important to note that among the choices of awards you may select items that are "green", made from recycled products or manufactured through green processes, items that benefit a charity by a portion of the cost going to the fund, or products that promote health and wellness. All of these items are identified with a symbol next to the item description in the catalog.

Awards are mailed to your home address or an address of your choosing.
