Facilities/Construction Management was determined to recognize their employees who contributed to the success of the FY20 academic year. Although gathering the 400 employees altogether in one space was not an option this year, a new way to Build Futures and Maintain Excellence emerged.
During the spring, fellow staff members were able to nominate colleagues who they felt exceeded in their work this year. In addition to the individual Employee Excellence award which was revived last year, another award was added to the nomination process, the Cross-Team project award.
The top nominated employee finalists were individually emailed to let them know they had been considered for the award. The finalist’s included: Pam Case, Emory Moore, Allison Wright, Angelica Olivos, Lawrence Dang, Bill Wilkins, Carlos Cabrera, Nick Tamayo and Willy Vazquez, Rufus Kemp and Juan Urbano.
During a virtual department town hall in July, Associate Vice Chancellor/Associate Vice President David Oliver shared the four award winners.
The Building Futures Employee award was given to Manager Rufus Kemp for his work on the inventory stock project he led.
The Maintaining Excellence Employee award was presented to Juan Urbano for his dedication and commitment to the Auto Shop.
The F/CM Onboarding Task Force was awarded the Building Futures Team award for their work on the department orientation.
The HVAC and General Maintenance teams were the winners of the Maintaining Excellence Team award for their work during the City of Houston water main break in February.
Facilities/Construction Management continues to encourage all of its employees to build futures and maintain excellence throughout the year and looks forward to continuing this annual tradition.
