Employee Recognition

The Facilities Services Department currently maintains two employee recognition programs: Employee of the Month and the Exceptional Team Award. You can find out more information about each of these programs and the recipients under the headings below.


Employee of the Month

September 2019 Recipient: Beth O'Neill
Congratulations to Beth O'Neill, the September 2019 recipient of the Employee of the Month Award! Beth facilitates the New Employee Orientation every two weeks, and it's important to her to create a consistent and welcoming experience for everyone who comes into Facilities Services. You can always find her desk because she keeps a balloon tied to it to help new employees locate her when needed. Outside of the office, Beth has a background in theatre and improv and has been known to work as a voice-over artist on the side. In January of this year, Beth was diagnosed with breast cancer, but after a lumpectomy and a few weeks of radiation, she says recovery has been excellent and as easy as she could hope.
Beth is helpful, friendly and a great addition to the Facilities Services team! Help us congratulate Beth on this achievement.
