Food service worker Raymond “Ray” Hand has an excellent attitude and is always willing to go the extra mile for his customers.
Ray came to Boone Hospital Center 2 years ago and says he has really enjoyed his position. He values his friendly coworkers and likes getting to know his customers.
Ray also appreciates the good benefits Boone offers its employees, and he hopes to take advantage of the tuition assistance program to further his career.
Ray’s nominator says, “He exemplifies so many of our standards, but specifically in his positive attitude. Ray always has a kind word for everyone who comes through his line. He is an absolute 'Ray of sunshine!' He consistently engages his coworkers and customers by asking them how their day is going when he greets them and wishes them a good day as they leave. I also have seen him, on more than one occasion, assist elderly customers by carrying their tray to the table for them and asking them if he can get them anything else. I am proud to be a teammate of Ray's.”
Ray’s director Julie Winters says, “Ray is such an exceptional person. It is his compassion and attitude that sets the bar for the entire cafeteria and organization. I’ve received multiple complimentary emails and phone calls regarding Ray and his interactions with customers at the cash register. He has a pleasant and caring demeanor. He goes above and beyond for the customers and is family to his co-workers.”
When Ray is not at work, he is busy spending time with his 10 kids. He likes to have BBQs with them and take them to theme parks. He says he loves spending quality time with his family. Congratulations, Ray!
