It’s truly remarkable to witness such glowing accolades for a WST LAES candidate who was successfully positioned at UPMC through the diligent efforts of our Caseworker, Bronwyn, within our Waterford WST LAES division.
I hope this message finds you well. As per our earlier conversation this month, I wanted to provide you with an update on the progress of a WST LAES candidate placed within UPMC.
The candidate joined our team as a subcontracted officer from S-security Ltd. Right from the start, it was evident that the candidate possessed tremendous potential and dedication. They quickly adapted to their role and found particular satisfaction in interacting with patients and visitors. I’m pleased to share that the candidate’s exceptional approach garnered numerous compliments from both our Quality team and patients visiting the hospital.
Initially, the candidate’s responsibilities took them to various UPMC sites as they were subcontracted. However, it was apparent that they had developed a strong connection with our UPMC facility and desired to work here exclusively. Towards the end of the year, the candidate and I discussed the possibility of them joining UPMC’s staff if a suitable position opened up. After consulting with the management and HR teams over the holiday season, we were thrilled to offer the candidate a permanent position in February.
Since then, the candidate has been an integral part of our team as the Front of House officer. Their responsibilities encompass a range of crucial tasks, including welcoming visitors and patients, managing visitor policies, overseeing contractor procedures, and ensuring the proper functioning of our access control systems, barrier systems, and CCTV.
The candidate’s enthusiasm for growth within UPMC has been evident, and they recently had the opportunity to gain valuable experience by accompanying me to a security standard review for our CHKS accreditation.
The hospital’s management team recognizes the candidate’s dedication and potential, and as a result, they have proposed sending them for further training. The goal is to expand our fire training team, with the ultimate aim of appointing the candidate as a fire officer/manager for the hospital. Their dedication and contribution have truly been exceptional, making them not only an asset to our team but also a testament to the positive impact one can have within UPMC.
We look forward to seeing the candidate continue to thrive and contribute to UPMC’s success.
