» Employee of the Month :: Past Award Recipients :: Nominate Someone Today!


Josh Henslin,
Computer Services Department




Best Team Award

Media Services/ITV Staff

Congratulations Josh Henslin, & Media Services/ITV Staff for being named Best Bees for December!

Here is some of what Josh's nominators had to say:

“Josh has been a part of the help desk for almost a year. In this year he has set up a shared drive with countless fixes to problems that do not occur very often. This helps everyone work more efficiently at the help desk since we have fixes to many problems at our fingertips. If there is a problem on our image, Josh will not hesitate to get to the core of the problem and find a fix. This in turn helps everyone on campus.”

“Very helpful, nice, talented, and always welcoming.” “He helps everyone the same regardless of who they are. He works well in a group and works hard to provide a quality environment for students to learn/work in.”

Josh Henslin will receive an "up front" parking spot at UCR for the month of December.

Thanks Josh for making RCTC GREAT !

The Employee Recognition Committee


Are your colleagues or co-workers demonstrating extra effort, exemplary service, or demonstrated expertise in your department or on a committee? Are they working on a special project for their job/department/college or in the community? If so, please consider nominating them for "Best Bee of the Month."


The Employee Relations Committee (ERC) has implemented a process to recognize and reward employees for outstanding job performances. Recognitions can be awarded:

  1. Work Team Recognition. Recognition would include committee work, community service work, and department achievements and could also highlight something new the group has done or is working on. Work Teams who receive this award will be recognized through publicizing the award in the Crossings, on a "recognition" web site, possibly on our digital wall, their very own "pizza party" and gifts.
  2. Individual Recognition. This is a modified reinstatement of the "Bee Award" started by Bonnie Mercer. Recognition would include committee work, community service work, and individual achievements, extra effort, exemplary service or demonstrated expertise in their field. Individuals who receive this award will be recognized through publicizing the award in the Crossings, on the "recognition" web site, possibly on our digital wall, and gifts.
  3. Write Personal Notes. All employees are encouraged to write notes of recognition and appreciation to their colleagues and co-workers. This is a simple gesture which has a positive effect on the sender and receiver.


  • Anyone can nominate an employee or work team. The nomination remains active indefinitely.
  • The nomination form should include a narrative of why the nominee(s) merit being named Employee/Work Team {Best Bee(s)} of the Month based on criteria the nominator feels is relevant.
  • The nominee(s) may be any employee of Rochester Community and Technical College.
  • Nominations received by the 15th of the month are eligible for consideration of the following month's award.
