Tijerina named Employee of the Quarter

Providing excellent service to both employees and applicants along with her ability to manage multiple tasks at one time are a few of the reasons Mayra Tijerina was named the City of Burleson's employee of the quarter.

Mayra started with the city’s human resources department in February 2013, and she has excelled in providing great customer support in her role. She also volunteered to step in and assist when the department was short a staff member during the busiest two weeks of the year in the recruiting area.

“Mayra stepped in immediately without hesitation,” states her nomination form. “She kept the hiring process moving forward without a hitch.”

Mayra served as the lead in getting all of the summer recreation staff hired and ready to start at the beginning of summer. She also assured each new hire had all the details needed for their first paychecks. She volunteered to assist and train a new hire while keeping her duties, along with her great sense of humor and work ethic.

“I love working in HR because every day and situation is different,” said Mayra. “I enjoy helping others, and if I don’t know the answer, I will make sure to find out.”

Mayra will be honored at the July 17 City Council meeting. The city's employee of the quarter award is based on an employee's efficiency, transparency, honesty, innovation and customer service, all of which make up the city's ethics statement.
