Allen Ficke, Automation Controls Technician within Maintenance and Operations, was recently named UNO’s Employee of the Month for November.
The Prize Patrol surprised Allen with the award and refreshments on Nov. 11, 2019.
Allen was nominated by his peers for knowledge and customer service skills.
They said, “If there is a control problem that is difficult to diagnose and repair, Al is the one to send. He has been on campus for over 30 years and his knowledge is invaluable.”
They continue, “Al has an excellent relationship with the customers on campus. They are pleased when he shows up to fix a problem because they can trust him to know that the problem will be fixed.”
For being nominated as Employee of the Month, Allen will receive a certificate, lapel pin, hot/cold tumbler, portrait, monetary award, two tickets to a UNO sporting event and use of a designated parking space. The Staff Advisory Council congratulated Allen by providing snacks and fare for the Employee of the Month to enjoy with peers and department members in celebration.
