WeREC is an incentive program developed by UWG University Recreation (UREC) to connect/engage student staff and professional staff within the department. This semester-long competition will help connect and build a positive work environment, help retain great student employees, and create a sense of buy-in throughout the department and across campus.

How It Works

WeREC will last for the entire spring semester and began with All Staff Training. A UREC professional staff mentor is assigned to each team to ensure guidance, oversight, and encouragement throughout the competition. Teams will be made up of 7-9 student staff including 1 student team leader recommended by their supervisor and 1 professional staff mentor.

Throughout the semester, teams will have the opportunity to earn points by attending activities, seminars, trainings, sports events, etc. Once a team member completes an event, they will submit a picture of themselves to their student leader and mentor via the method of the team leader's choice (i.e GroupMe, email, etc.) After the request has been verified, the mentor will add points to the team's overall score. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL ACTIVITIES MUST NOT BE COMPLETED DURING WORK SHIFTS (i.e. a group fitness instructor cannot count going to a group fitness class they just taught, but can count going to another group fitness class that their peers teach).

An online scoreboard (above) will be updated automatically at the least weekly so teams have the opportunity to track their progress, check on other teams, and see how close they are to monthly prizes. Point totals from the prior week must be uploaded at the latest by each Monday morning at 9 a.m. for the previous week's points.

The Honor Code will be in effect for this competition. If a student staff falsifies an activity, they will be reported to their immediate supervisor for disciplinary action.

Points

Points will be awarded throughout the semester for a wide variety of activities and events that each team member completes/attends. Points will restart each month and prizes will be awarded to the top 3 teams with the most points through the last day of the month. Team cumulative totals will be tracked for the grand prize, adding up all points earned through Sunday, April 7, 2018.

Team leaders and mentors are both members of the team that earn points. If 4 or more individuals participate in an event, 20 points will be added to their score. Pro-staff can earn points for their team, but they are capped at one categorized activity per week (i.e. can only count working out once per week toward goal even if work out every day of the week).
