 Department of Human Resources & Equal Opportunity

Workers' Comp

Outstanding Service Award

Linda Olcott

Linda Olcott is an Associate Administrator in Facilities Management. No matter what task she is given she works above and beyond what is expected. While serving as the chair of the Facilities Management Safety Committee, Linda took the lead to significantly change the Department's Safety Program. They now have a positive, proactive approach, focusing on Safety and Health & Wellness and rewarding employees for doing the right things to be safe and healthy. All of this was in addition to her regular ongoing duties which she continued to perform in an exemplary manner.

Yet another important example is this year Linda chaired an incentive committee that was successful in increasing giving across the UMD campus to the United Combined Campaign. Whether Linda is working on a power point presentation for the Regents, communicating with our employees the quality of her work and the product she develops is always excellent. She has a very high work ethic and performs to the best of her abilities.

She has an outstanding work ethic and projects a positive image to everyone. Linda has been involved in many department and campus committees. She is very dedicated to each cause she takes on. Her dedication to UMD is shown through her involvement as past Professional Staff Council President and currently she is the Civil Service Committee representative for UMD. Additionally, she has been a co-chair for the Heart Walk for Facilities Management the past three years. Her dedication to her job is exemplified through her willingness to share her past experience to help the department in developing the customer survey, safety and wellness improvements and various event arrangements.

For all of the above reasons, I am pleased to present Linda with this award.
