Stephanie Bailey, Employee of the Quarter!

October to December, 2018

We’re pleased to recognize Stephanie Bailey as our Employee of the Quarter.

Stephanie works for ABR through our ABR Appleton location. She was hired in October, 2018 and works as an Intake Specialist at an organization that helps households with critical energy needs. To be successful in this role, you need to have good communication skills and patience. As an Intake Specialist, Stephanie asks clients a series of questions for the purpose of gathering information, and then uses this information to determine next steps for that client.

Personal Commitment to Excellence

“Stephanie was selected as the Appleton Employee of the Quarter because she meets ABR’s Expectations of Excellence, has incredible attendance and has not called in sick since she started her job,” said Staffing Coordinator Jennifer Philipone. The company Expectations of Excellence entail demonstrating behavioral characteristics of being trustworthy, respectful, responsible, reliable and professional.

“We also have received great feedback from our client on her performance,” Jennifer added.

Paycheck Bonus

In addition to receiving a recognition certificate, Stephanie received a cash bonus in her paycheck.

Stephanie’s actions clearly demonstrate that you can’t ride an elevator to success — you can only take steps, one at a time.

Congratulations, Stephanie! We’re proud of your success and happy that you chose ABR Employment Services as your employer.

How To Create A Job Reference Page

January 9th, 2019

What Employers Want In A Job Reference Page

So what’s the big deal about job references? And why does EVERY job you apply to ask for them? Employers aren’t asking to be annoying, promise!

The reason job references are so important is employers want to know about your work habits from past employers. Learning this information from people you’ve worked for in the past helps demonstrate that you’re qualified to do the job and will be a good team member.

 

Making A Job Reference Page

Employers are looking for the following information on a job reference page:

  • your references full name
  • their current job title
  • the company name
  • street address
  • city, state, zip code
  • telephone number
  • email address

It’s also good to include a brief sentence about your relationship to your reference.

Job Reference Page Visual

For example, your job reference page could look like this:

Be sure to let your references know that you are searching for a job! This will allow them time to reflect on your past work and prepare to address reference questions.

Most employers, ABR Employment Services included, need a minimum of two job references in order to consider you for employment. Help employers help you speed the hiring process along by having your references ready to go and up to date!
