Here are the Highlights from Atari’s nomination:
Demonstrating The Arc NCR’s Mission
Atari started her employment with The Arc NCR in the Community Living department in June of 2020, months after the pandemic had hit. The organization was operating under their new normal, including the way team members came onboard. New Employee Orientation is completed virtually, as well as many of the traditional in-person things a person does when first starting at new job. Onboarding virtually can be a challenge, but Atari took the new system in stride.
About one month into her employment with The Arc NCR, Atari found herself working at a home where people supported had tested positive for COVID-19. Atari did not hesitate to jump into action and when asked if she was comfortable working she simply responded, “Of course. This is what we do.” She continues to provide a high level of support and shows great care and compassion for the women she supports, and we are so grateful to have her at our organization.
