Our 2024 “A Better Life Award Recipient”: Kim (ABL Employment – Hamilton, Ontario) 

We are very pleased to present Kim with this award! Kim received the most votes from a group of 25 nominees (nominated by our client companies and ABL staffing team members) selected from a pool of 5000+ people who worked with ABL  last year.

Kim has paired up with ABL a number of times over the years, starting as far back as 2005. Since then, we’ve seen Kim’s confidence and skills grow leaps and bounds. At her most recent position with ABL at a world-renowned steel company, she immediately started to make her mark.

Kim’s work ethic, adherence to H&S protocols and supportive nature lead to her being identified as a great candidate for a junior foreman position. Kim took this opportunity and ran with it, and is now a fully trained and competent foreman.  Working in the elements and at all hours of the day, Kim’s generosity and leadership shines through when she comes prepared to help her co-workers and peers with an extra hoody, gloves, or hat, because she doesn’t want anyone to go without in the event of changing weather conditions.  Kim also packs extra food in her lunch bag so she can offer a sandwich to anyone that may have forgotten their lunch.

Loss is a tragic part of life and when Kim and her teammates lost a fellow mentor and peer, Kim became a pillar of support for her teammates while leading by example on how to grieve while remaining strong and focused.  Many staff have expressed their sentiments on how Kim really supported and helped them.

Upon hearing that she had been nominated for this award, Kim said: “ABL has helped me grow, helped me become a better person and has given me the opportunity to love my life. I have come so far in my journey, and it is long from over – I am so proud of myself and what I do – I LOVE my job. I will make myself better every single day to become the BEST me I can BE!”
