  1. Extension Name Badge Order Process and Format Update

    Jan 29, 2024

    New Employees

    The Extension Operations team is now ordering name badges for new employees – which will be delivered to each employee’s office location by or shortly after their start date.

    Format Update

    Both new and replacement name badges will now be ordered via UniPrint, using the Extension mark. All name badges ordered after this point will use the updated format.

  2. UniPrint Ordering

    Jan 10, 2024

    The Uniprint ordering system does not communicate with Workday, so similarly to 4-H Publications with Comm Media, while placing the order through UniPrint- start creating the requisition - CREATE Requisition  -Search Catalog - type UniPrint in the Search field... to pay them in Workday. It is helpful to have both UniPrint and Workday windows open at the same time for this 2-STEP PROCESS.

  6. Holiday Staff Appreciation Event Guidance

    Nov 15, 2023

    OSU Extension:

    We have a max budget of $60/employee, and that maximum should take into consideration other staff appreciation events individual units may have had this year. This amount is not provided by the college, but rather the max allowable to spend from local sources. It is the recommendation of Extension Operations that we limit this to event/meal costs only and do not provide gifts to employees due to the taxable reporting requirements of doing so.
