August Greetings from the Director
Nominate a Work-Life Friendly Supervisor
Do you have a supervisor who understands and supports Work/Life balance, and is sensitive to individual needs while mindful of maintaining high productivity? Does you supervisor treat all employees with dignity, respect and integrity? Does your supervisor exhibit a positive leadership style which empowers you to be your best?
If you can answer YES to any of these questions, consider nominating him or her for the third annual Work-Life Supervisor of the Year award. The winner will be honored at a luncheon on October 27, as part of UK’s celebration of National Work and Family Month.
Last year’s winner was Jody Ensman, manager of the Health and Wellness Program. Jody was recognized for her exceptional efforts to create a flexible and productive work environment for the employees she supervises. Barry Russell of Auxiliary Services was honored in 2008. Leading by example, Barry encourages his staff to seek out UK support and services so that they can to be their best at home and at work.
Employee satisfaction surveys indicate that our supervisors play a vital role in our engagement in the work place. Help us honor those UK supervisors who are instrumental in helping us be our best both at work and at home. Nominate your supervisor today!
