2012 EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR (Line Staff)
Jessica Hall, Receptionist
Jessica joined The Arc of Spokane in October 2011 as the agency’s receptionist. She had very little experience with people with disabilities but embraced our mission and treats anyone who calls or comes in with the individual dignity and respect they each deserve. Over the last year, I have had employees tell me that “you can hear the smile in her voice when she answers the phone”, that she is “professional and welcoming” and that “she is always willing to help with whatever is asked of her in addition to the numerous things she already does at the front desk.” At the beginning of each month, she handles an extremely large volume of calls as well as hundreds of walk-in customers from our Financial Management program, while at times can be challenging, she is pleasant and professional. .
2012 EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR (Leadership)
Betty Gall, Supported Living Site Manager - Atlantic
Betty Gall has established a standard of commitment and care to our participants that is second to none. She is a hard worker who has sacrificed many evening and weekend hours to be with her clients and/or staff, making sure they are well-supported, have what they need and are not alone. She’s skilled at helping people get through a crisis and also at recognizing situations as they really are. She’s a clear communicator and a tough but fair supervisor. She can find the humor in any situation, while still maintaining her compassion and professionalism. Betty has been a real asset to Supported Living at The Arc of Spokane, and I wholeheartedly support her nomination for Leadership Employee of the Year.
