Liz Lozada-Rivera – October 2021

Please join UCF Human Resources in congratulating the USPS Employee of the Month (EOM) for October 2021: Liz Lozada-Rivera.

Liz Lozada-Rivera is an Office Support Assistant in the Human Resources Department. Her nominators, Patty Farris and Millicent Downer, had this to say about her:

“Liz is an incredible team player with a great attitude. She goes above and beyond each day she comes to work. Liz is the person that greets anyone coming into our office with a warm simile. In addition, she has an exceptional demeanor toward our internal and external customers. Liz has to juggle many hats throughout the day and manage to juggle all the balls without letting things drop. An example of this is how she orients new team members by ensuring they have a seamless transition to the team and have everything they need in their office to succeed.  Liz fosters an inclusive workplace by treating every one of our teammates with the utmost respect. She is a kind and hard worker. Liz represents the university well by being such a champion for excellence in everything she does.

Liz has been an immense support system for the HR Department and has consistently gone above and beyond in her role as an Office Support Assistant. Not only does she oversee the front-end responsibilities of central HR, she puts in maintenance requests for our facility, notifies me of security and safety hazards, (typically taking the initiative and submitting requests to resolve them), and assists our staff-remote and onsite-with both technical and office equipment needs.

HR has relied on federal work study students to provide Liz with much needed support to carry out the day-to-day operational needs of the HR department. Due to challenges in recruiting students, Liz has been left with limited backup support. However, despite this, Liz willingly offers to provide support to the other HR areas when needed. Liz is very conscientious in making sure our customers feel welcomed and goes out of her way when needed to make sure their needs are met. Liz is a highly valued member of the UCF-HR team.”

As USPS Employee of the Month, Liz receives a one-time $200 cash award, $25 from UCF Business Services, $25 from UCF Bookstore, and a goody bag. She is now eligible for the USPS Employee of the Year $2,500 award, announced at the UCF Knight Star Awards.
