Like Puzzle Pieces, NCC Administrative Staff Complete Picture
Racing against the clock, Toshia LaBerth and Angela Potts scrambled to piece together two scattered puzzles.
LaBerth, an NCC Human Resources Receptionist, and her group formed a picture of a dog. Meanwhile, Potts, an Administrative Assistant at Harmony House, and her teammates pieced together a cat. Both teams saw that their parts joined together—with four missing pieces supplied afterwards—to complete one puzzle.
The puzzle players comprised about 30 NCC staff honored for Administrative Professionals’ Day. Representing 19 departments across the NCC network, the group enjoyed a luncheon at St. Joseph’s Plaza organized by Human Re¬sources staff.
“Without you, everything would grind to a halt,” NCC CEO Richard Rohrman said to the group. “Thank you for your service and thank you for what you do for New Community.”
Using the puzzle as an illustration, Kenyatta Nobles, Director of Human Resources, said that everyone plays a crucial role at NCC. “It takes all of us to create the product. Your place, no matter how big or how small, is important,” he said.
Those were welcome words to Uchechukwu Nwamba, a Unit Clerk of four years at NCC’s Extended Care Center. It’s not always easy being on the front lines of serving residents and their families facing aging and health issues, she said.
“No matter what, you have to put on a smiling face,” she said. “You have to try and use your customer service skills.”
