Birthday Time-Off Approval

From: President's Office
Sent: Thursday, September 22, 2011 11:38 AM
To: FACULTY Distribution List; STAFF Distribution List
Subject: Birthday Leave

Dear Tarleton Faculty and Staff:

It is my pleasure to announce the approval of a paid birthday leave, beginning January 1, 2012, for all benefit-eligible faculty and staff.  The dedication and hard work of Tarleton’s faculty and staff is evident each and every day, and this additional paid leave is recognition of your commitment.

The idea for birthday leave has been discussed for some time and was recently recommended by Staff Council.  It was a recommendation that I and the executive cabinet heartily endorsed. I commend the Staff Council for their work and continuing effort to look for development opportunities and service recognition.

Our Employee Services Department is developing policies and procedures to administer birthday leave. Those procedures will be communicated to you once complete.

Please know that I am thankful to each of you, and I trust this new benefit will serve as a reminder of the value of your work to Tarleton and the greater community.
