Bravo Award pilot extended for second year

October 14, 2014  

The Bravo Award program for employees, based on a successful pilot year, is continuing with a few modifications for a second pilot year, Human Resources has announced. In 2013-14, the program, which rewards employees for significant results-oriented achievements, processed 769 awards at a value of $389,275.

After considering the feedback received throughout the first program year, HR is making some changes to facilitate administration. The changes for the 2014-15 plan year include:

* Three levels of Bravo Awards will be available: $500, $750 and $1,000.

* Seven-and-a-half percent of the eligible population will be targeted to receive an award.

* The funding limit allocation by employee category will be eliminated.

* The service requirement will be reduced from one year to three months of completed service.

Funding limits will be distributed soon, and units may begin accepting nominations for the 2014-15 plan year. Awards may be processed once funding limits have been distributed. For units that would like to begin participating this year, or with questions about the program, contact

Participation in Bravo is strongly encouraged and applauded, says Luis E. Lewin, vice president for human resources.
