Beebe Healthcare Honors Lisa Rector with the “You Make a Difference” Award for June

Lisa Rector, Social Worker in the Sussex Central Wellness Center in Georgetown, has been honored with the Beebe Healthcare’s “You make a Difference” Award for June.

Lisa has been recognized by her peers and team members for her dedication and enthusiasm as a social worker. She goes above and beyond when assisting students and coworkers at the wellness center. Lisa’s cheerful demeanor and positive attitude are infectious and appreciated by everyone. She is genuinely sensitive to those students and coworkers dealing with emotional issues, treating them as if they were her own children. She is not afraid to get involved and attempt to mend anything that is broken.

Many of her coworkers say Lisa makes it her goal to ensure the needs of everyone are met on a daily basis. Lisa is a role model for all Beebe team members.

Beebe Healthcare’s “You Make a Difference” (YMAD) employee recognition program, which was established in 2002, gives employees the opportunity to recognize their colleagues for outstanding service. The program is similar to an employee of the month program, but 18 employees can be selected annually. Each nomination, submitted by fellow employees or management, must meet specific criteria, and is evaluated by the YMAD committee. Winners are announced in a surprise ceremony in which the committee visits the winner in his or her department and presents the award. Employees selected for the award receive:

  • Parking space with sign/plaque for a month
  • $100 check
  • Letter of congratulations and personal visit from Jeffrey Fried, Beebe president and CEO
  • Photo for wall plaque on hall outside of cafeteria
  • Special pin for badge
  • Letter to team member’s director and department recognition
