Gregory Ivey, Housekeeping
GSC & Dacier Employee of the Month
October 2017

    He is known as "Greg" to most of his fellow employees. He is also known for seeing his role here as one that goes beyond keeping the building clean and safe. His manner of personal interaction with other staff and residents caught the attention of one who wrote on his nomination card, "He started here working in the kitchen. He always had a positive attitude even during transition times when there were challenges to everyone. He transferred to the Housekeeping Department in March and takes great pride in his work. He pays great attention to detail, greets the residents and the staff as he sees them, and is a dedicated worker. Sometimes it is the little things that you observe when he interacts with the residents that make him stand out. I think he is a positive role model for new employees also. I hope his dedication will not be overlooked, but applauded.”close
