Staff Recognition at a large organization may take any number of forms.

Employee Appreciation Luncheon

William & Mary celebrated it's first “classified employee recognition luncheon and award program” on June 30, 1976 in the Great Hall of the Wren Building. It recognized employees who had retired the previous year as well as those honored with more than 25 years of service. This luncheon in the Great Hall continued until the 1980s.

By the time George R. Healy hosted the annual luncheon in June 1985 when he was acting president, the event was recognizing employees with 20 years of service and retirees.

The first outdoor picnic recognizing the service of classified staff was held on August 23, 1988 and was hosted by president Paul R. Verkuil and his wife.
