As today is Administrative Professionals Day, we thought it was the perfect time to announce the winner of our recent Office Hero contest. It was wonderful to receive nearly 100 entries from corporations all over Canada and read some amazing sentiments about the incredible office heroes out there! After going through them all in detail, we are delighted to announce the winner as Chelsey Fillion from Allnorth. A colleague of Chelsey's had this to say:
"Chelsey is our corporate Safety Health Coordinator and is always ensuring all of our employees across our 13 offices in Canada, are trained, prepared and ready to work in all conditions for all of our clients. It is a tireless job, as requirements constantly change and there are often last minute emergencies that she is responsible for. She is one of the most calm, patient yet approachable people I know, and is always willing to lend a hand with a smile on her face. She is constantly upgrading her safety credentials, often on her spare time. What little extra time she does have, she spends supporting her large family in town and organized ALS fund-raisers for many years in memory of her grand-father who has passed. Chelsey met her soul-mate at work, and although they work out of the same office he is constantly away working in the field, or attending school in another city so they have actually spent more time apart than together! This hard-working lady deserves to win!"
Chelsey is the recipient of a $1000 travel voucher and is still deciding on where she would like to go.....it's a toss up between Hawaii or somewhere else sunny and warm! On top of awarding a $1000 prize to our office hero, we wanted to say thanks to all of those who nominated someone. We are pleased to announce a secondary prize of $250 randomly awarded to S. Cooper.
From all of us here at Corporate Traveller, we'd like to say thank you to all of the people who nominated someone and also a very heartful appreciation to all administrative professionals out there who work tirelessly day in and day out! We think you're awesome!
