The Pro Vice Chancellor (Business) Staff Excellence Awards were initiated in 2008 as a means of recognising, celebrating and rewarding the outstanding performance and significant contributions to the School by our staff in areas not acknowledged through other reward and incentive schemes. The Award categories are aligned with the School's Vision, Mission and Values and recognise those remarkable staff whose actions support Griffith Business School in furthering our Strategy 2017 - 2020.
Nominations for the 2017 awards close at 5.00pm on Friday 27 October 2017.
