Prison HR Manager Awarded Chief Officer's Choice

Human Resource Manager Raquel Solomon received the award on Friday.

Human Resource Manager Raquel Solomon, with Her Majesty’s Cayman Islands Prison Service, has been named the newest Chief Officer’s Choice of the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Chief Officer Wesley Howell presented the award to Ms. Solomon on Friday 21 October 2016.

“It brings me great pride to recognise the outstanding efforts and high standards of civil servants like Ms. Solomon,” he said. “The passion and dedication she brings to her job in the Prison Service is exceptional, and her unflagging commitment to promoting the vision, mission and values of the Ministry of Home Affairs is inspiring.”

Chief Human Resource Manager Briana Ebanks nominated Ms. Solomon due to her outstanding efforts to plan and host the Public Safety Recruitment Fair in late August, an event that included Prison Service, Fire Service and the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.

“I am delighted that Raquel was chosen as the Chief Officer’s Choice for the month of August 2016,” she said. “Her generous nature and can-do attitude made her an excellent choice, especially on the heels of her involvement and success with recruitment fair which attracted well over 300 people seeking employment with the uniformed services.”

Prison Director Neil Lavis also expressed support for Ms. Solomon, saying her work ethic and attitude are superb, and the award is well-deserved.

“I am extremely pleased that the efforts of Ms. Solomon have been recognised,” he said. “This is an area in which her drive and passion are at its best, and to pull together all the agencies and organise such an event is no mean feat.”

Ms. Solomon in return expressed her gratitude, “I am humbled by the nomination and selection for this award. Even though you don't do what you do for public recognition and reward, it is always nice to feel that the work you do is appreciated. I am thankful to those who saw fit to nominate me and for the Chief Officer's consideration.”
