Denise Pritchard, senior strategic business analyst in the Decision Support and Business Development Department, has been honored with Beebe Healthcare’s You Make a Difference Award for July.
Pritchard has been recognized by her peers and team members for her dedication, teamwork, and Beebe spirit. She has been the go-to person for many departments during a transition to a new operating model. Pritchard eagerly makes herself accessible to team members who are in need of assistance to improve department budgets.
"Pritchard is sensitive to fellow team members’ performance goals and makes it her mission to provide them with the encouragement and support they need to achieve their own objectives," said Jeffrey M. Fried, president and CEO of Beebe Healthcare.
"She is willing to work with all team members, even if it means going above and beyond her normal working hours. She has invaluable knowledge and expertise and is an outstanding role model and leader for all of us to follow," said Fried.
Beebe Healthcare’s You Make a Difference 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; and letter to team member’s director and department recognition.
