HR liaison honors
Nursing's Sclavos named Human Resources Liaison of Quarter
8:06 a.m., Feb. 27, 2014--Brenda Sclavos, administrative assistant in the School of Nursing, has been named the University of Delaware’s Human Resources Liaison of the Quarter for the first quarter of 2014.
The award identifies and recognizes an outstanding performer within the HR liaison community for the preceding quarter.
Kathleen Schell, director of the School of Nursing, described Sclavos as often being the first person that visitors, representatives of outside agencies and individuals from other UD departments interact with when they initially contact the school.
“Brenda is the hub of the School of Nursing wheel,” Schell said. “She is a wealth of knowledge about the history, processes, procedures and daily operations in the school and also about resources within the University system.”
Schell noted that Sclavos is attentive to the customer, be it the director, faculty member or student, and tries to see the positive aspects of all situations.
“Brenda is prompt in follow-up and she really cares about the faculty and students and outsiders’ perceptions of the School of Nursing,” Schell said. “She is consistently pleasant, respectful and tactful and handles faculty and student requests with confidence and speed.”
Sclavos was the recipient of a 2013 Sigma Theta Tau Friend in Nursing Award. The award recognizes a demonstration of commitment to the ideals and purposes of the organization, superior achievement in the individual’s field of work and long-term significance of the chapter and the nursing profession.
“I am very appreciative and pleasantly surprised to be named Liaison of the Quarter,” Sclavos said. “It is rewarding when you are recognized.”
Sclavos said she enjoys the constant learning experience that comes with being a member of the HR team.
“I onboard many people and help them with their many inquiries regarding their employment,” Sclavos said. “I have been at the School of Nursing for over 24 years and enjoy working with my colleagues.”
