Congratulations to Laura from Options on winning UCP’s Employee of the Quarter Award! Laura was chosen out of a group of six other outstanding employees. The person who nominated Laura said that she ‘displays consistent investment in not just the well-being of her clients, but their overall happiness and fulfillment in life, and centers the service and support she provides on such a high level of commitment .”
We also would like to congratulate the other five nominees:
Emily at Marquardt for her “ability to turn what may be a challenge for other seems not so much by assisting where it’s needed. She lends a hand with no hesitation and is willing to learn as she goes along. “
Ingrid, Program Director of Cluster One, because “she is someone who often steps up to the plate to volunteer for large and small agency events and day to day tasks and does so with a smile and little thanks. Ingrid is often at the helm of significant medical events and challenges with her consumers and handles these events with ease and professionalism”.
Amanda, Assistant Director of Independent Living, “continued to demonstrate her dedication to “Team Options” in a variety of ways. Throughout the quarter, Amanda selflessly continued to take on extra tasks and cover open cases while we searched for an additional staff person, ensuring that all consumers received the support they need. Amanda has been heavily involved in training two new staff during this quarter, passing along her incredible skill set, dedication, and the heart she puts into the team”.
Alyssa, Case Coordinator of In Home Supports, “has stayed later in the office to ensure deadlines are met and tasks are accomplished. She does not do this for those solely on her caseload, but for others served by the agency as well “.
Gabriella, Day Services SLP, not only without hesitation, but with extreme enthusiasm and commitment she was a key leader in the startup of the Wellness group. She took time out of her evening to continue to work through to lead the Wellness Group at one of our group homes. This is the type of person and UCP staff that she is and that engulfs an awesome work ethic”.
