BASSETERRE, St Kitts - DESPITE the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on St. Kitts and Nevis, private sector entity Kajola Kristada has recognised the hard and dedicated work of two individuals during the month of August.
The two employees, Jeniffer Lamelo Hernandez and Verne Rouse, were recognised for their efforts in ensuring their department attain set goals.
Ms. Rouse was recognised as the Employee of the Month for the daytime shift and the ecstatic employee was short of words while speaking with SKNVibes News.
She has been with the company for some nine years and was high in praise of management for providing an environment, which is not only friendly but one that motivates employees to want to be engaging at their workstations.
“I enjoy my time at this company. I enjoy what I do and I enjoy my job a lot!” she exclaimed.
According to Rouse, it is her family and coworkers who have been her motivation ensuring that she is punctual and present at work.
“I come in here very early, work around the clock and ensure that I get my task completed on time. When I’m finished, I sometimes help my coworkers,” she added.
The mother of two said that she has the support of her family who is intimately involved in preparing her for getting to work on time.
Hernandez, who was acknowledged for the sterling work she did during the night shift, indicated that there was no major change in the way she undertook her work, other than getting her task completed on time.
Her supervisor, Marc Breuil, told SKNVibes that she is one of those people who would go above and beyond to get their work completed.
“Jennifer is a hard worker. She is innovative, manipulative and very creative,” he noted.
In describing the reason for Hernandez gaining the nod over her coworkers on the night shift, Breuil said she was always punctual, has a perfect attendance record and is always willing to lend a helping hand.
Hernandez welcomed the award, telling SKNVibes that she was surprised but happy to have gained the recognition.
The two were all smiles as they were celebrated for their achievements during that period.
Kajola has over the last decade provided the EoM as an incentive for its employees who go beyond the call to ensure that the department's goals are achieved.
