Employee of the Month

UAB Employee of the Month/Year Program

The UAB Employee of the Month/Year Program seeks to recognize and reward those staff members whose contributions best exemplify these traits. In doing so, we not only show appreciation for outstanding individual achievement, but more importantly, we communicate to all, publicly and consistently, the significance of these values to the University.  Included among the values essential to achieving UAB’s mission and vision are Accountability, Collaboration, Service, Commitment, Diversity, Can-do Attitude and Ethical Conduct.

2013 Employee of the Year - Diana Florence:

Diana Florence, administrative support specialist in Rheumatology and Osteoporosis, has been named Employee of the Year.

Florence was chosen from the 12 Employee of the Month award winners named this past fiscal year. An invitation-only presentation ceremony and reception honoring her with the highest non-academic employee award will be held later this fall.

Did she see it coming?

“Looking around at my co-workers — knowing what hard workers they are — I was astounded to be singled out. I am very humbled and moved,” said Florence, who is assistant to Sarah Morgan, M.D., director of the Osteoporosis Prevention and Treatment Program. “A team is like a puzzle with interlocking pieces. Our duties interlock. I am a piece of the puzzle, and I enjoy having the skills and the ability to help wherever and whenever I am needed. We all help each other.”

Nominate someone, if you think that they meet all the criteria.
