Service awards are calculated by fiscal year, so employees who reach a milestone between July 1 and June 30 will receive their service awards in the spring.
- Length of service acrylic awards is presented in five, ten and fifteen years of service.

Recognition presentation tips
How to organize recognition events
How a recognition award is presented is important and meaningful than the award itself. The service award or gift is a token of appreciation given in recognition of the employee’s ongoing commitment and contributions to Arizona State University. The goal is for the award recipient to feel valued and connected to ASU.
- Plan the celebration.
- Decide when and where to hold the event.
- Obtain an acrylic service award or gift.
- Plan for refreshments.
- Invite others to attend.
- Ask the employee’s supervisor for positive input.
- Consider the personality and preferences of the employee being recognized. For example, does the employee prefer to receive recognition in a public setting or a quieter setting with the team?
Prepare a thoughtful presentation that contains the following key information about the employee being honored:
- Know how to pronounce the recipient’s name correctly.
- Include employee’s anniversary date and the number of years of service.
- Add current job title and responsibilities.
- Acknowledge the employee’s ongoing dedication to ASU.
- Recognize the highlights of the employee’s contributions and accomplishments.
- Link the employee’s contributions to unit and department goals.
