EMPLOYEES OF THE YEAR - 2015

2015 EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR (Direct Care/Line Staff)   
John Reid, Maintenance

When I see John he is always hard at work. Every morning John checks in with the community center to make sure everything is ready for the day. He always greets our members with a smile and is always there to help when things get messy. John is always willing to help employees when there’s an issue with facilities and does so with joy and never a complaint. His response to problems is always positive and immediate. During his time with us we have had several incidents where he responded quickly to save us time and protect our property.  John has gone out of the way to make the work place a positive place to be and makes sure everyone knows they are appreciated. In all the years I have been at The Arc no maintenance crew has been better. John is a great asset to our agency, and we are thankful he is a part of our team.
