Cayman Islands Government Employee of the Month for September 2016 is Aubrey Bodden for being ‘Most Professional’.
Ms. Bodden, a Policy Analyst of the Cabinet Office Policy Coordination Unit (PCU), started her career as a Civil Servant in 2008 as a Research Officer. She is being recognised for her work in the recent coordination of Development Month which facilitated the empowerment and continued training of public servants.
Cabinet Secretary, Mr. Samuel Rose acknowledged Ms. Bodden for her care and attention to detail. “You demonstrate a passion for the public service and for supporting the professional development of your colleagues. Aubrey has shown our civil servants that we are an organization that cares about their well-being and that we are committed to their success.”
Deputy Governor, Franz Manderson praised Ms. Bodden for her “Off the Charts” Initiative and for exemplifying the Cabinet Office’s vision as a Champion Influencer of Good Governance. “I thank you for demonstrating such a remarkable level of performance and commitment to the Cayman Islands Government.”
Mr. Manderson continued, “Although there is so much more that could be said about you and the qualities that you possess, we have chosen the following:
• you are exceptionally efficient, unquestionably committed and an outstanding team player…
• …you have initiative that is ‘off the charts’, a remarkable achievement drive, concern for the highest quality results, brilliant analytical thinking and passion for effective service”
Mr. Manderson also thanked Mr. Rose and the staff of the Cabinet Office, for demonstrating excellent team work. “Mr. Rose, your team lives by your office’s mantra: “Everyone together achieves more”. Some question if my job is hard. In many ways it is easy as a result of the excellent support and teamwork I enjoy from Chief Officers and their staff. It is obvious that Ms. Bodden is a role model for other Civil Servants when it comes to teamwork and raising the level of performance of the civil service”.
