EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT: IVON RAMIREZ
Any custodial worker knows they are more than "just" a janitor-- and we agree!
At Accurate Building Maintenance, our team members are the backbone of our team and the heartbeat of our #purpose: creating clean, healthy, safe communities. They take care of our customers, so we take care of them like family—the best kind! We are so grateful for all they do each day and love to see them grow and succeed.
We’re kicking off a monthly Employee Spotlight series featuring an amazing team member, showcasing what it’s like to work in the cleaning industry at Accurate, where we #keepitfun.
This month we are happy to introduce you to Ivon Ramirez! She's one of our facility supervisors and has been with Accurate for a little over a year since starting as a detailer/standby janitor. Ivon was nominated for knocking it out of the park turning an account around since her recent promotion to supervisor. Our crew, client, and company leadership and management teams are grateful and impressed.
WHAT OTHERS HAD TO SAY ABOUT IVON
Ivon's supervisor Bonnie Miller said, “In the short time that Ivon has been supervising this facility, she has completely turned the account around. The client has noticed—one of my favorite comments is that the building looks and smells really clean now! Our day porters have complimented how well Ivon works and that she goes above and beyond to help them. She has helped bond everyone together as a team and made a huge difference!”
“I am so proud of Ivon! It has been a joy to watch her grow since she first came to this country. She is always so eager to help anywhere she’s needed, learn everything she can, and keeps pushing for more growth. Ivon is a great communicator and always comes up with #solutions for any hurdle she comes across.” -Bonnie Miller, Director of Workplace and Employee Experience
Accurate’s Vice President of Operations Rico Rodriguez agrees. “What stands out with Ivon is not just better service delivery to the client. Her leadership has created a collaborative relationship between the day crew and night crew, which makes it easier for each shift to perform their tasks."
“I had the pleasure of working with Ivon many times. The job Ivon has done as night supervisor for that school has been incredible! She was able to bring that crew together in a way that has been very impressive. She's extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of our field of work, and she truly is a joy to work with. Her future is definitely bright in our company!” -Michael Milner, Accurate Team Member
