"G" Thanks! Program

"G" Thanks! is a recognition program to help recognize and show appreciation for colleagues and employees at U of G.

How does it work?

Each month, employees are invited to post a note of recognition or appreciation on the "G" Thanks! Kudoboard for that month.  At the end of each month, nominated individuals will randomly be selected from the monthly Kudoboard to receive the "G" Thanks! gift. The winner will have a visit from two members of the GREAT at U of G team, the nominator, and their Manager. 

The monthly winner will receive:

  • A "G" Thanks! water bottle 
  • Gryphon mask 
  • Beeswax lip balm

Nominate a colleague or team today

Know someone at U of G who deserves to be recognized for something they have done? Or a team who you really appreciate?  Post a note on the "G" Thanks! Kudoboard to enter them into the monthly draw!  If a team is randomly selected as the winner, each name will be entered into a draw to determine one prize winner. Please be sure to list all team members in your nomination.

The March "G" Thanks! board will be open until March 31 and the winner will be awarded their prize in April.

Submit your "G" Thanks! Nomination(s)

If you have sent a private Kudo message to a colleague who is GREAT, consider nominating them here as well for the monthly "G" Thanks! draw.
