Mrs. Jean wins Regional Employee of the Month

15 Jean Web
Each month at UAB Campus Restaurant employees are recognized by their peers and supervisors for their contributions daily with Exceptional Experience Cards. In addition to the Exceptional Experience Cards, The Sodexo Experience allows for employees who have gone above and beyond their call of duty (our superstars) to be nominated for a the Employee of the Month Award. Winners are recognized monthly at the district, region and division levels. Mrs. Jean has won the campus, district, and South East region employee of the month. Read her nomination below. 

Jean is looked upon by students as part of the family. She takes time to learn student's names and greets them by name when they come through the line. She inquires of their wellbeing and stays engaged in the conversations students have with her.

Students who are away from home have to feel a sense of "home" with jean because of the way she treats them. I think sometimes we overlook that quality Jean has. With that kind of personal touch Jean adds to her role, students are more comfortable with her and will likely return for repeat business. Her exemplary service to our students in the Commons is such a great face for UA Dining.

Jean has been employed with us since August 2010, and since then I don't believe she has been recognized for her qualities. Our staff who meets with the students face to face on a daily basis plays such an important role in keeping our image positive.
