Library's Marc Gordon Named Employee of the Month

Marc Gordon began working at UNO on the Criss Library renovation project five-years ago, but with construction finished, he has stayed on as building services manager for the facility. Gordon is responsible for maintaining everything on the inside of the Criss Library and he describes his job as "never being the same day twice." "I enjoy seeing a lot of interesting people with diverse personalities and being able to watch how everybody works together," he said. "If there's an issue in the building everyone comes together to get the issue straightened out. It's a 'patron first facility' and a very enjoyable place to work."

In nominating Gordon for the monthly award, one person said, "Marc always makes himself available to patrons and staff no matter what time it is. He is involved in so many projects on campus including the digital signage committee and taking a year-long CPM course ... all while still doing his Monday-Friday 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. job. If he gets a phone call at home and needs to come in he will do so. He is such a great manager and will always help anyone to the best of his ability." Gordon will receive a certificate and check from Chancellor John Christensen and he will be honored at an upcoming meeting of the Board of Regents.



Shakespeare on the Green Starts This Evening

For its 26th season, Nebraska Shakespeare's Shakespeare on the Green festival returns to Elmwood Park with two classic plays: "Julius Caesar" and "The Comedy of Errors." Performances begin tonight, June 21, and run through Sunday, July 8. The two professional productions are free to the public and regularly attended by thousands, many of who arrive early with picnic baskets, blankets and lawn chairs to get a good spot "on the Green," which is located at the northwest end of Elmwood Park. The entrance is just south of the Henningson Memorial Campanille on University Drive South. Read more.

ESS Leave Requests Over Fourth of July Holiday

If you plan on using vacation hours around the Fourth of July holiday, please pay special attention to requests that fall during that week. Normally you can submit leave for several days within the same week, but this is not the case when a holiday falls within the specific days. Example: if you plan on taking vacation Monday, July 2, through Thursday, July 5, you will need to submit a leave request for Monday and Tuesday, then another request for Thursday. Creating the two requests will then accurately post your vacation to your employee record.

Splitting of requested vacation time will also be necessary for Leave Requests spanning the Labor Day holiday weekend in September.

Please contact the Payroll office with any questions at 402.554.2321.
