Hamilton Jewelers has been selected as the exclusive resource for Princeton University’s Employee Service Recognition Program. Hamilton was chosen through a vetting process of several national brands to design and fulfill a gift program with the University’s Human Resources Department. The program awards Princeton employees for tenure milestones, starting at the 10-year level through 55-years of service.
The custom program includes a broad range of items for associates to select from, including fine jewelry, timepieces, home décor items, and more. Most items are personalized with the Princeton University Service Recognition logo. In development for almost 6 months, the program is a comprehensive solution for both the University and Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory to commemorate employee service milestones.
Presented to eligible recipients at a luncheon held at Jadwin Gym on Thursday, March 27, the program offers a private website for associates to shop for their gift selections, as well as printed brochures with the product offerings. Once a gift item is selected, Hamilton prepares it for delivery to the associate, including customization, gift-wrapping, and drop-shipping if requested. Nearly 600 associates attended the luncheon to view the gift options from Hamilton so that they could select their preferred item. A total of 10 categories were included in the program: 10 year, 15 year, 20 year, 25 year, 30 year, 35 year, 40 year, 45 year, 50 year, and 55 year. A lapel pin was also designed as one of the recognition items, with each milestone year having its own color palette and metal fabrication.
In total, the program will recognize nearly 200 Princeton University and PPPL associates in 2014 for their years of service. “We are very proud to have been selected for this important platform,” says Hank Siegel, Hamilton’s President. “Having been a longtime supplier to the University for various gift and jewelry items, it is wonderful to work with the Human Resources Department on this notable project.”
