We are hugely proud of the contribution our staff make to our Trust day in, day out and our winner of February’s Employee of the Month award embodies our values perfectly.
Congratulations to Zsanett Kowal, who is part of our Child Development Service at St Luke’s Hospital, and whose dedication has helped others secure employment.
Zsanett was nominated by our Project SEARCH Coordinator, Bryony Dolby who chose her because of her caring and nurturing nature and the skills she displays as a welcoming mentor.
Bryony said: “Zsanett is currently mentoring Mohammed Waisal in the Paediatric Secretaries team; he is the sixth intern Zsanett has mentored through Project SEARCH Bradford since 2015.”
“Throughout the interns’ placements, Zsanett has adapted her approach to the needs of each individual. She is very patient, and strives for accuracy and high-quality work, which helps interns to acquire and enhance skills, and progress towards their goal of securing paid employment.
“She values the contribution interns make, and has provided a caring and nurturing environment for them to learn and develop. Interns who have worked in this team have said how welcomed they felt, and that they were really included in the team.
“I have nominated her because of the continuous outstanding support she has provided, and the significant impact this has had upon the future employment prospects of the interns she has mentored. An impressive 80 per cent of the graduates Zsanett has mentored have consequently found paid employment, and her mentorship played a key role in that.”
Mohammed added: ’Zsanett is really nice, has helped me a lot and has been really supportive. She is always there and available to help me if I need it. It feels like home in the department.”
