WORKFORCE PLANNING & ANALYSIS
The Division of Student Affairs continues to recognize the tremendous work and accomplishments of our employees in transforming students, community, UC Berkeley and the field of Student Affairs. The Division offers multiple types of ways to award outstanding contributions:
Achievement Awards have changed from a divisional recognition program for significant one-time accomplishments into a supplement for our merit-based salary compensation for ongoing and sustained achievements. Instead of being decided division-wide, Achievement Awards are now being handled at the AVC level. Each AVC (David Surratt, Joseph Greenwell and Amy Jarich (Interim) will be handling the Achievement Award process for their respective units internally leveraging performance reviews and other assessments of accomplishments. If you have any questions about this award program, please contact BusOps@Berkeley.edu.
- The Spot Award, similar to previous years, recognizes special contributions, as they occur, for a specific project or task, generally for a special contribution accomplished over a relatively short time period. The award amount is $500. In a change, this year, represented clerical employees (CX) are now eligible for the award. If you have any questions about this award program, please contact BusOps@Berkeley.edu.
- The Thanks to You “Spotlight” Recognition program is just one of the ways to celebrate successes by appreciating one another's talents and contributions.
- The STARS Recognition Program is set-up to help advance Student Affairs mission through high quality customer service. If someone you have interacted with has shown true STARS standards (Sincere, Trustworthy, Attentive, Resourceful, and Successful), the employee is eligible for a $25 Amazon gift card!Please note that the STARS program is not funded by the Division and requires the department's Chartstring or Speedtype.

~ What gets measured, gets done.~ This quote from William Hewlett is still very relevant today and particularly for Berkeley as it moves towards implementing its High Performance Culture. We need to be able to measure the quality of our work in order to make improvements.
The Workforce Planning & Analysis team is developing metrics to enable the Division to measure progress toward achieving strategic goals at both the Division and unit levels.
What are the benefits of using metrics?
As we move towards building a world-class operation to support our students, it is important for every staff member to know how their contribution affects the larger mission of the university. There are a lot of best practices that we can draw upon to help us to measure our progress. Benefits include:
- Clear and transparent communication of priorities throughout the Division.
- Alignment on campus-wide goals and consistent metrics to assess overall performance (e.g., support plans that are clearly aligned to Student Affairs priorities).
- Well-defined goals and metrics.
- Clear guidelines on how to assess performance with strengthened accountability and incentives aligned with performance.
