Wendy Dack - Our first 'Employee of the Quarter'
Published on 09 August 2019 12:38 PM
Congratulations to one our favourite Age UK North Tyneside and EveryDay Care characters Wendy Dack on being awarded Employee of the Quarter by her colleagues and customers .
Wendy has worked with Age UK North Tyneside and EveryDay Care for eleven years and now holds the post of Team Leader at Linskill Park in North Shields. She spends her day supporting our customers who are all living with dementia and the carers and family members. A very popular character at EveryDay Wendy said “I'm absolutely delighted to be nominated let alone to win this award. It means a huge amount to me”
Wendy was nominated because of her passion and tenacity in the face of stepping up into a new role with very short notice. Wendy had demonstrated a real passion and desire to provide the very best service to her customers and their carers and is a fantastic ambassador for the organisation as a result.
She has worked specifically on marketing and promoting the Linskill Wellbeing Centre offer and with only a small amount of guidance she really embraced the challenge and the technology and did a wonderful job. Wendy enjoyed the idea of being empowered to do more and lead, as opposed to taking direction and saw an opportunity to demonstrate her value in the absence of her line manager and she seized it.
She has energy and drive as well as a genuine love and care she demonstrates (and not just on camera) for her customers. She makes Linskill Park a fun place to work and spend time in. Recently whilst on holiday in Greece with her family Wendy even took time out to visit a local care home supporting customers living with dementia to better understand other types of care provision. She said that with her £100 prize she’ll start saving for her next trip.
We’d like to take the opportunity on behalf of everyone at Age UK North Tyneside and EveryDay to congratulate her on her achievement.
Who is your employee of the quarter? Nominations are open again now.
