Mike Tomlinson Named Full-Time Employee of the Month for November

When Mike first joined our team, it was just to "help out".  That help has blossomed, and over the past year he became a full-time member of our Maintenance Department.  Mike is now a really important part of that department, and his supervisor, Jay Gilliss recently nominated him to receive this award.  He was elected by the other managers, by acclamation.

Mike is one of those people who just digs in and does whatever needs to be done.  He is willing to help out however the help is needed, and sometimes that help translates into some not-so-glamorous jobs.  He always does his work with a smile, and we can definitely count on him.

Congratulations, Mike!  Thanks so much for all that you do!!



  1. Congratulations to Mike! He looks like a really nice guy and a real asset to your staff at the Hawthorne!

    By the way, may I just say that I love that the Hawthorne has an Employee Recognition Program. We have one where I work at American Ambulance and I think they're great as it's always nice to get a pat on the back once in awhile for a job well done. A lot of our employees grumble about it being a ridiculous program but I bet they'd think differently if they were ever the ones get the kudos.

  2. i agree. it is nice to be recognized and thanked for a job well done.
