June Employee of the Month
June 16, 2014

Jeanette Parmenter, Human Resource Officer, Office of Human Resources, is the recipient of the June Employee Recognition Award. Jeanette was nominated by Andrew Lenhardt, Associate Director, Office of Human Resources.

I have had the privilege of working with Ms. Parmenter for the past eight years, and I continue to be impressed by the exceptional quality of service and professionalism she continues to provide to the campus community. Specifically, coordinating the flawless employment of nearly 300 temporary extra help employees over the last year. Ms. Parmenter’s “behind the scenes work” can also contribute to the success of Housing and Facilities Management Maintenance Programs, Summer Showbiz, Springboard, Campus Recreation, the Call Center, and a numerous number of summer camps for pre-college students (Art, English, Music, Science, and Intercollegiate Athletics). This demonstrates a keen attention to detail and strong work ethic. Ms. Parmenter has become well known throughout the university community for her courteous behavior. She is respected by her peers and appreciated by applicants because of her positive and friendly approach.

~Andrew Lenhardt, Associate Director, Office of Human Resources

Each summer, University Housing depends on temporary craft employees in various areas. This summer it was very critical that all of the staff be on campus on the requested day so that housing facilities could be transitioned from spring semester housing to summer/conference housing. Jeanette Parmenter developed a transparent system that kept the housing facilities management staff informed throughout the whole process. Jeanette remained vigilant to make sure that labor request were filled on time and ensuring all paperwork and protocol was completed prior to the employee’s first day. Through Jeanette’s supportive efforts, we are able to actively engage these employees into our team in an effort to provide quality service for the residents of university housing.

~Michael Schultz, Director, University Housing

In the fall of 2012, Jeanette transitioned from a position in Civil Service Testing to one responsible for the management and oversight of the Civil Service Extra Help hiring process. Already equipped with great customer service and communication skills, Jeanette did not shy away from acquiring new technical abilities and has since become an expert in various human resources information systems. After operation within this position for over a year, Jeanette has fully mastered the role; consistently exceeding expectations. She is always thinking ahead, and consistently forecasting the temporary work force needs of various departments. A once compliance-oriented process, Jeanette has transformed Extra Help employment in a more user friendly experience.  The University is fortunate to have such a stellar employee, and I am truly grateful for her efforts.

~Greg Crook, Senior HR Specialist, Office of Human Resources

I am thrilled to receive this honor! SIUE is a great place to work. I love my new position recruiting Extra Help employees. Customer Service is my passion and I love working with my clients. I want to thank all department heads and support staff for their cooperation in helping me to be successful. I also want to thank Andrew Lenhardt and Greg Crook for nominating me for this award and to all of those who endorsed it. It really is a great day to be Cougar!

May Employee of the Month
May 13, 2014

Anne Moore, Business/Administrative Associate, School of Education, is the recipient of the May Employee Recognition Award. Anne was nominated by Dean Bette Bergeron, School of Education.

Anne is an exceptional employee who is meticulous in her assignments, willing to take on new responsibilities in support of the School’s initiatives, and well respected across campus. Of particular note is her ability to expertly handle the School’s complex budget, which is of critical importance during this time of fiscal “challenge”, and her more recent duties related to the SIUE East St. Louis Charter High School (CHS).

When reviewing the criteria for this employee recognition award, it is clear that Anne meets and exceeds all qualifications. Her overall work performance is exceptional, as Anne has a keen eye for details and completes very complex tasks related to budgeting and personnel with accuracy and without need for direct supervision. Her work requires her to communicate on a regular basis with professionals from across the campus, including the Provost’s Office, Human Resources, and Legal Counsel. She has developed strong linkages with these critical units, and is held in high regard by those with whom she collaborates. Anne is always willing to support others in the School of Education, including new clerical staff as well as new faculty and SOE administrators, and guides then through policies and procedures with patience and in collaboration with other staff within the Dean’s Office. In addition, Anne takes the initiative to develop new processes to increase efficiency and reduce risks within the School.

Anne Moore is an exceptional employee who is making important and positive impacts within the School of Education, across the University, and for the faculty and students at the Charter High School. I am proud to have her as a member of my staff.

~Dean Bette Bergeron, School of Education

What a surprise and honor to be nominated for employee of the month!  I’d like to thank Dr. Bergeron for nominating me.  It’s a wonderful feeling to have my hard work and dedication to the School of Education and SIUE to be recognized by my supervisor.  I have been lucky to work with such an intelligent and talented group of people in the School of Education’s Dean’s Office for the last twelve years.  More recently, I’ve had the opportunity to work with an outstanding group of people on restructuring the SIUE Charter High School.  Working with these individuals has been refreshing and such a pleasure.  I am impressed on a daily basis by their knowledge, skills, and expertise.  Again, thank you for this very special honor and recognition.
