Employee Appreciation Day Celebration Takes Place Sept. 1

Mark your calendars for Tuesday, Sept. 1, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. when the Kent Student Center Ballroom will turn into a fun-filled employee appreciation event!

As the cross-divisional committee works out the additional details and activities, you will be hearing much more regarding the complimentary lunch, entertainment, games, giveaways and more that will make up this day of appreciation. Lunch and events will take place concurrently throughout the three-hour period so that departments may schedule release time for staff, and employees will have the same experience no matter what time they attend. Employees are not required to use designated sick or vacation leave to attend; however, the time for participation in this event should be coordinated with guidance from their supervisor or manager.

The university administration is looking forward to bringing this event to all full- and part-time faculty and staff at all Kent State University campuses for all that you do to make the university a great place to work! In addition, as we did last year, the university will host an employee appreciation event in the evening for second- and third-shift employees. However, all employees are invited to attend the day or evening event.

Stay tuned for additional information, including registration links, in the upcoming weeks, and we’ll see you Sept. 1!
