Employbridge Honors Outstanding Work Achievements with 2022 Associates of the Year Awards

ATLANTA , June 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nine associates working in industries across the clerical, manufacturing, transportation and logistics industries were honored as Employbridge’s 2022 Associates of the Year. The Associate of the Year initiative, now in its eighth year, reaches more than 30,000 participants and recognizes employees from each of Employbridge’s nine specialty divisions who stand out as leaders among their peers and demonstrate exceptional work performance. An executive leadership committee selected the nine winners from a pool of more than 250 peer-nominated associates hailing from every Employbridge division.

Many recognized associates participate in Employbridge’s Better WorkLife Academy (BWLA), which provides free online learning programs that improve skills and result in greater on-the-job productivity, competence and satisfaction. BWLA bridges the skills gap while helping associates forge meaningful career pathways by developing critical work skills such as machine operations and computer skills.

“Each of these winners has shown exceptional drive to learn new skills, unlocking their own potential, developing their skills and working with integrity that inspires admiration across our organization,” said Employbridge CEO Billy Milam.

Danielle Gordon, an award recipient, began as a temporary associate in an administrative role, was hired full-time and quickly worked through several promotions to become a program manager. Since 2021, Danielle has supported the State of Louisiana to assist citizens with their state benefits. As she continued to advance in her career and deliver quality service, she simultaneously worked to obtain her master’s degree.

“Watching Danielle begin as an intake specialist to now advance as one of the program managers – it is absolutely amazing to see someone grow that quickly,” said CSRS Business Analyst Brad Stoufflet.

“I treat my job as if it were my business, and I always tell my team to work with integrity,” said award recipient Quantella Renee Higgins. “Whatever work you are doing, you have to do it as if it were your place, your business, your home.”

Nominations opened in December 2022, and winners receive $1,500, an embroidered jacket or backpack, a $100 gift card and a $25 Working Advantage gift card. Winners are featured in a personalized video during a companywide awards presentation and are celebrated locally at their branches.
