Roger Howell July Employee of the Month
Posted on 07/13/2018
The City of Columbia is proud to recognize Roger Howell as our July Employee of the Month. Roger has been a dedicated employee for the Parks & Recreation Department for 17 years. He began as part of the building and grounds maintenance crew and was promoted to Crew Leader. Roger has an incredibly positive impact on the residents of Columbia by making every effort to ensure the proper operation of various pieces of equipment heavily used by residents (and employees), enabling him to provide stellar customer service. As a crew leader, Roger organizes and directs staff to complete weekly tasks without getting behind or delayed. He is a true linchpin of the Parks and Recreation Department, as most often he is the first call, and last call, when problems arise. Roger always has a bright, upbeat, and positive response to issues and when asked to handle problems he jumps in head first.
Roger’s cost savings to the Parks and Recreation Department is considerable to say the least. By using existing resources, on-hand equipment, and working knowledge, Roger has been able to fix problems many other departments may have to contract out. Roger has embraced and succeeded in implementing our new payroll system. Where many have had challenges adapting to this new technology, Roger has learned and adapted.
Congratulations, Roger, on a job well done. Thank you for your commitment and dedication to the Parks & Recreation Department.
