Employee of the Month
Alice commenced her employment at RFCSL in November 2006 as a CDP. In January 2008, she also became a subcontractor. The number of nominations Alice received confirms what a good fit she is.
Alice shows up for work everyday with a smile on her face. She is always fully prepared for her client's day and sadly she often misses out on social events due to her dedication to her client's community involvement. Alice follows her client's schedule consistently. She is also very involved in the medical aspects of our medically fragile clients. She is accurate with all documentation. Alice always takes a moment to recognize the appreciation she receives from her home coordinators and day program supervisors.
Management and front line employees describe Alice as enthusiastic, impeccable with paperwork, stellar attendance, happy, smiley, dependable, reliable, professional, community focussed, great role model, and last but not least, "she has nice hair, we want it!!!!"
Well done Alice. We are very proud to have you part of the RFCSL team!!!!
