Becky started out with our client at the Mt Hope Airport in Hamilton in November 2019, after finding that retirement from her Steel Mill career left her with too much time on her hands: she felt she had so much more to give! She started working as general labourer, but quickly showed her leadership, drive and passion. Becky learned the client’s processes inside and out, and has been such amazing support not just for ABL but also for our client’s internal staff as the shift coordinator for ABL onsite. Becky has worked countless hours – people would joke they should just get her a bed in the facility because she was always there!
Becky is one of the most caring people we know. She is always thinking about how she can make someone else’s day better. Even when she was dealt a bad card and diagnosed with cancer, she was determined to get strong again, and come back to work after her recovery period. Her team needed her, and she missed them terribly!
Becky, we can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication. You truly do deserve this award, not only have you created a better life for yourself, but you have created a better life for those that get to work side by side with you daily. We know you’ve already put that $1000 award to good use! We know you will put that $1000 award to very good use!
ABL’s “A Better Life Award” recognizes an individual who has made an active outbound effort
to create a better life for themselves and the people in their lives.
It is not just a “good job” pat on the back but rather an affirmation of positive action and accountability. While ABL is a part of this, these inspiring stories are truly about people who have influenced their own situation to create A Better Life. Learn more about how an ABL employee can become eligible to be nominated for the “A Better Life Award” here. You can watch the video about our very first Award Recipient, Tracy C, here.
Of over 250 nominations this year for actions both big and small, 15 were presented to the entire ABL team who voted to determine the 3 “finalists”. We’d like to thank you for taking the time to read these wonderful stories as told proudly by the local ABL staffing team.
