award_sarah_heffner(Concord, NH) On Wednesday, August 26th Sarah Heffner, a Career Resource Specialist on our Concord, NH team, was awarded a Success-at-Work Award at a team meeting. The award, which was presented by Steve Wood, was presented following a wonderful description of Sarah’s work by Scott Niemczura, our Concord Director, who nominated her.

In making his nomination, Scott highlighted Sarah’s commitment to building outstanding employer relationships and then helping each client excel in the right position. Here is a condensed piece Scott wrote about Sarah’s work:

“As of June 2015 Sarah has 103 placements in her time with Work Opportunities Unlimited. Each of the last 2 years, Sarah has finished in the top five in placements within Work Opportunities, including 38 placements in FY15. Sarah helped lead the Concord office to their highest placement year ever (69 total placements). This could not have been accomplished without the relationships that Sarah builds.

One of the very successful relationships Sarah has is with the local Manager of Crossmark, Ken. Sarah has made 14 placements at Crossmark in the last 2 years, due relationship she has built with both the company and the Manager Ken. Many of the clients that Sarah has placed at Crossmark continue to work there, and there were a couple individuals that have been promoted to Alcohol demonstration, Team Leaders and other specialized areas. Ken enjoys working with Sarah and her attention to detail with the clients and her communication with Ken is what keeps Ken calling Sarah when he needs a job filled.”

In making the presentation Steve Wood presented Sarah a certificate which read:

Work Opportunities Unlimited, Inc. honors Sarah Heffner for persistently committing to the core value “We build successful, reciprocal relationships” and helping individuals connect successfully with employers. Of special note is the relationship Sarah has built with Crossmark and her success with Kevin. With a positive attitude and over 100 placements during her short career Sarah is a great teammate and a Success at Work!

The “Success-at-Work” award, which began in 2000, periodically honors and recognizes team members who have delivered outstanding service to our clients that is consistent with the Company’s core values.

Congratulations, Sarah!
