Tim joined us today, as he often does, for our Saturday morning breakfast. We went to The Range in Bernalillo, a favorite of all three of us.
Knowing that this week was Tim's first week as a "regular" employee, having just completed more than four months of training for his new position at HP, I inquired about how his week had gone. I was happy and proud to hear that it went great. Just recently his immediate supervisor was promoted, leaving Tim with a brand new supervisor, who is just getting to know his staff. One day this week the new supervisor came to Tim and presented him with two tickets to Cirque du Soleil, which is coming to Albuquerque later this month! He told him that when the tickets came to him, he contacted the former supervisor to ask which employee on the team was most deserving of a reward. "Without a doubt, that would be Tim," he was told.
It was nice to get the tickets, of course, but even nicer to be singled out for his good work.
