The UCSF HR Employee Recognition Program Selection Committee is pleased to announce the Employee of the Month Award recipients for April 2017, Angie Camarillo and Maria Rina-Simon! Congratulations to them both! In addition to recognition, they will each receive a certificate and $50 Visa gift card.

Name: Angie Camarillo
Job Title: Staff HR Generalist
HR Team/Work Unit: Staff Shared Services

Why Nominated:
“Angie saved the day with one of our IT rehires. One of the laid-off employees had to start on a particular day to maintain his retirement tier, and Angie caught that he hadn't yet signed a severance repayment plan. Angie contacted LER and walked the employee through the process. She did a fantastic job staying in contact with us and getting the employee what he needed. This is a great example of Angie's awesome customer service.”

What does Angie enjoy doing outside of work?
“Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family.”

Name: Maria Rina-Simon
Job Title: LER Representative
HR Team/Work Unit: Labor and Employee Relations (LER)

Why Nominated:
“During the last few months Maria Rina-Simon has provided us with superior support, advice, and has successfully facilitated several meetings with union leaders. She is always professional, calm, and respectful in her interactions. These meetings can be challenging, and Maria has walked our supervisors through those challenging moments beautifully. Maria is a superstar, and she is a pleasure to work with and deserves to be Employee of the Month. Thank you Maria.”

What does Maria enjoy doing outside of work?
“I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, travelling when time allows it; just spending quality time with my family and friends. It can be as simple as just having a cup of hot chocolate with a pastry or enjoying Spanish tapas with a lot of humor.”
