The HEART and Spot Award Program recognizes the excellence that exists in all units and job functions at Haas. Any member of the Haas community may submit nominations at any time. The HEART and Recognition Committee then reviews nominations and recommends HEART and Spot award distribution.

The 2020-2021 HEART and Recognition Committee has been selected for this year.

The committee reviews nominations in batches. To nominate a colleague for a HEART or Spot award, please complete the nomination form (provide as much information as possible about the accomplishment) and submit to haashr@berkeley.edu. Please note it can take up to 2 months from the time of submission for the awardee to receive a spot award on their paycheck.

PPSM (PSS and MSP), employees in the Clerical (CS) bargaining unit and student employees are eligible to receive Spot Awards. Represented employees in bargaining units (other than the Clerical bargaining unit) are eligible for HEART awards.

This year, a total of 65 Spot Awards were awarded to Haas staff members who have exemplified our Defining Leadership Principles. See them below!
