Best Bee of the Month - February 2007

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




Congratulation's to Suzanne Dinusson
for being selected as Best Bee for February!

Here is some of what the nominator had to say:

Suzanne has led 25 Study Tour groups from RCTC to Paris, London, Hong Kong, and New York. Her groups include both RCTC students and members of the community; feedback from participants promote Suzanne as an exemplary ambassador of RCTC.

Suzanne and her Retail Merchandising students have spent hundreds of hours this past fall helping the Salvation Army design the layout and arrange merchandise during its relocation to a new location in SE Rochester. This was all volunteer work, Suzanne and her students were recognized with a front page article in the Post Bulletin, thus giving recognition to one of the successful career programs at RCTC.

Suzanne works in the community with various groups, including the Rochester Chorale Arts, and the Rochester Rotary Club, where she promotes their missions, while at the same time giving recognition to RCTC and its mission in the community.

Suzanne will receive an "up front" parking spot at UCR for the month of February.

Thanks Suzanne for making RCTC GREAT!

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.
