Operations Employee of the Month Program

TBI’s Operations Department has launched an exciting new program to honor an employee of the month. Recognizing individuals who go above and beyond expectations in their role, the Recognition Committee (one of the department’s four committees), works to improve internal processes and morale. Every month, managers of each team nominate an employee that has performed exceptionally in their role while demonstrating the 10 Standards that the department overall holds themselves accountable to. The Employee of the Month is announced in monthly department meetings and is presented with an award.

Congratulations to those whom have been recognized as Operations Employee of the Month so far this year:

Derrick Glahn, Project Manager

Throughout his first year at TBI, Derrick has continuously gone above and beyond to ensure our partners receive accurate information and timely support through effective communication with colleagues and TBI providers.

Derrick was nominated as January’s Operations Employee of the Month by Hope Onweller, Program Manager. Hope shared that Derrick is proactive in managing partner orders and always looking for ways to improve. He is a true team player, and has even assisted in training members outside of his department on provider tools and processes.
