Ring The Bell – March 2014

Posted on by Jerry

sarai-rtb-march-2014It is my pleasure to announce our March 2014 Ring the Bell winner, Sarai Orth. Sarai has been with Career Path Services for over five years working under our Department of Commerce funding, which operates our Community Jobs programs.  She began working with us as case manager, was promoted to the Spokane Program Manager, and now holds the position of our Eastern Washington Branch Manager for the Community Jobs programs.

Sarai directly supervisors a wonderful group of people in the Spokane WorkFirst Community Service Office (CSO), and oversees our Community Jobs programs operated in Okanogan, Ferry, Stevens, and Pend Oreille counties. She is a model of Career Path Services’ values and guiding principles.

As a branch manager, Sarai is a model for our agency’s commitment to providing employees with a progressive, productive, and friendly work environment.  She works tirelessly with her team to think outside the box to find solutions to challenges, highlights the good work they accomplish regularly, and works with them as an active participant in team job development days.

Most recently, she has been working with her team to discover the passion they each hold for pursuing the work that they do.  Learning what drives a team of people to get out of bed and come to work every day can help leaders better connect to their employees, and thus cultivate a stronger, more productive, and friendlier work environment.  Sarai shared a quote with her team recently that is demonstrative of her attitude and work ethic:

“Life is no ‘brief candle’ for me.  It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations”

She treats her work, no matter the task at hand, as if it is the “splendid torch”, and she wants to ensure she does her best to make it shine as brightly as she can before she passes it along.  Thank you Sarai for your commitment to providing your team with a great working environment!

Thanks to Sarah Featherly, Director of Transitional Jobs,  sharing Sarai’s great work with us this month.
