|Anita Kemnitz awarded for employee suggestion|
Anita Kemnitz, payroll specialist in the Payroll Office, is the recipient of a Suggestion Incentive Award for her successful suggestion to purchase paper in bulk quantities. Anita’s suggestion was adopted by UND in January, 2009, and produced a savings of close to $1,800 for the first year. Vice President Alice Brekke presented Anita with a cash award. Her suggestion was submitted to the Suggestion Incentive Committee, chaired by Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm, as part of the State Employee Suggestion Incentive Award program. All North Dakota state employees may submit ideas to cut costs of state government through this program. A link to the program’s web site is available at www.humanresources.und.edu.. Congratulations to Anita for her innovative thinking and pursuit of cost savings for the University.
