Annual Employee Service Award Guidelines

North Idaho College is able to meet our mission and achieve our vision through the hard work and dedication of our employees. In an effort to acknowledge employees for their service, NIC supports and presents the annual employee service awards to employees who have achieved milestones in their years of service.

This program is made possible in part through the generosity of the NIC Foundation, which sponsors awards beginning at 15 years of service.

Here you will find the program guidelines. The NIC Human Resources department manages the annual employee service award program and process. Questions about this program can be directed to HR.

When are the service awards presented?

The annual employee service awards are presented to employees at the all-employee meeting that is held on Commencement Day at the end of each spring semester.

Who is eligible to receive an award?

Employees are eligible for service awards in five year increments beginning at the five-year mark (i.e., 5 years, 10 years, 15 years, etc.). At each milestone, employees will be recognized and will receive an award.  The milestone years include:”

40-Year Award*

35-Year Award*

30-Year Award*

25-Year Award*

20-Year Award*

15-Year Award*

*These awards are sponsored by the NIC Foundation and will be based on cumulative years of service in a benefit eligible position (aka full-time).
