Recognizing employees for performance is a standard practice with many organizations. With a renewed focus on employee engagement, The Barry Robinson Center (BRC) is taking a fresh approach to its employee recognition program.
In February, BRC launched a new Employee of the Year program. Each quarter, BRC will select an employee who exemplifies its mission and customer service standards of excellence. At the end of the year, one of these employees will be selected as Employee of the Year.
The first employee recognized through this new program is Tyler Cameron, an information technology specialist from BRC’s Information Technology (IT) Department.
“Tyler’s primary role is to provide customer service to the staff for network and technology-related issues. Since he took over that role, his positive attitude, politeness, and high level of professionalism have been reflected in increased quality of interactions with the staff,” IT Director Chuck Jacques told the selection committee. “He has consistently put forth the effort to improve his level of knowledge and conceptual understanding of more complex IT design and infrastructure methodology and has become an outstanding asset to the day-to-day operation in support of the staff at BRC.”
Cameron’s award was announced at the February 2022 monthly leadership meeting on campus. He received a plaque, gift card, and personalized parking spot of his choice for the quarter. Also, his name will be added on a permanent wall plaque mounted at the entrance wall of the cafeteria. This is a high-traffic location where honored employee names will be seen by residents, other staff members and visitors.
“This is the most perfect job, at the most perfect place, with the most perfect people. I couldn’t be happier,” Cameron recently said to one of the selection committee members before he knew about the award.
BRC appreciates Cameron’s ongoing commitment to his position and for being a positive representative of the Center.
