Marta Muselik, Business Manager of Gift Processing, is the Employee of the Month for May

Marta Muselik, business manager of gift processing for University Foundations, is the May Employee of the Month.

Muselik has been employed by the University since 2015.

Muselik is being recognized for her dedication to her role, which includes overseeing the acknowledgement and recording of pledges, pledge payment and gifts from donors to the Educational Foundation, Athletic Foundation, Real Estate Foundation and the University. Muselik serves as the point of contact for donors, fundraisers and University staff.

Maggie Libby, associate vice president for University Foundations described Muselik as patient, kind, thoughtful and always looking for ways to improve efficiency.

"Marta keeps her colleagues up-to-date on what's happening and has a positive attitude that is contagious," Libby said.

A common theme that describes Muselik by her colleagues is that she provides great leadership and mentorship to her team, with the goal of providing excellent internal and external customer service. One of her colleagues stated, "On a personal note, I enjoy working with Marta every day. She's always smiling when I come in, and brings me tasty teas and treats. She also teaches me a little Czech here and there. I look forward to her company."

DETAILS ABOUT THE EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH PROCESS

The University Employee of the Month Selection Committee encourages employees to nominate their outstanding, "go the extra mile" colleagues and employees. This program is designed to acknowledge and reward employees whose accomplishments and/or demeanor exemplify excellence, quality service and commitment to ODU. Classified and AP faculty employees receive a framed certificate from the president, $175 and one day of leave. Hourly winners get $250, since they are not eligible to receive recognition leave.

Note: The selection committee needs specific examples that relate to each applicable criterion in order to select a nominee for the award. Nominations remain active for six months from date of submission and nominators may submit additional documentation to support a nominee during the active six months.

The criteria used to nominate an employee include the following:

  • An outstanding accomplishment that benefited the department/students
  • Extraordinary service to internal and/or external customers
  • Inspiring initiative/leadership
  • Enthusiasm/energy given to assigned work
  • Teamwork
  • Exemplary efforts to nurture a climate of care, concern and civility and;
  • Creative innovations to service, process or work tools.
