Another month, another employee of the month! In August, MRI’s Case Management Administrative Aid Mia Jarrettwent above and beyond the normal call of duty. Mia was nominated because, “she was asked to devote three hours of her day doing something that was crucial in keeping our clients safe and she was happy and willing to help. She volunteered with the best attitude and a smile on her face. Her every day attitude makes me proud to work at the same place as her.”
Mia’s nomination was unanimously chosen from a pool of over 50 nominations! Thanks for all your hard work, Mia. We appreciate all you do for MRI!
This month, we had nominations from employees, individuals and even parents! At least one person from each department was nominated. Thank you to everyone who went above and beyond this month AND a huge thank you to those who noticed!
MRI’s first employee of the month is Pamela Cunningham from our Community Living Services department. Pam works at one of our group homes and was chosen as the winner from a pool of over 40 nominations. Pam’s fellow employees saw her going above and beyond, nominated her for her hard work and then chose her as the winner.
The winning nomination read, “Pam was more than happy to participate in an activity that most employees had no interest in. She also expressed very positive feelings about MRI and the work that she does.”
Pam was surprised at work early Friday morning with a bouquet of candy, balloons and a Starbucks gift card. She also has a reserved parking spot at each of MRI’s three locations. You can see her reaction in the photo gallery below.
Thanks to all the employees who had such wonderful things to say about the people they work with every day!
