Amber Emly is the winner of the Kraus-Anderson Construction Company Mission/Vision Award for May 2015.
Amber is an administrative assistant for the Circle Pines office. She was nominated by Hannah Jungbauer, Sam Crow, Heather Roeber, Cortney Bailey and Nancy Richardson from the Circle Pines Office. The nomination reads:
“Some of the people making this construction company great are those who aren’t building buildings per se, but working behind the scenes to create a more rewarding and united workplace. One of those amazing, behind-the-scenes, humble, hard-working, whole-hearted KAer’s is Amber Emly. With a contagious energy, Amber goes above and beyond to help everyone without question. The last couple of months there have been a few events and Amber was behind most of them, with calling around and setting everything up and making sure that every detail is in place. It can be anything from Arranging travel to our Zany mini-golf course, literally anything A to Z – she has you covered. Her can-do attitude is exactly what drives the successful Fall Giving and Holiday festivities.
The tasks that Amber completes are behind the scenes and often unnoticed. She is always the one making the travel arrangements, helping with HR-related tasks, assisting the DOO and SVP. Her plate is often changing and evolving and her attitude is remarkable.
Beyond her accommodating manner, she also exhibits mindfulness in all she does. Coming in early to finish a task or staying late so another colleague is able to enjoy our (FABULOUS) early dismissals or days off is not a rare occurrence. All of which is done without an expectation of anything in return, not even an ounce of gratitude. She is great to work with and if you ask anyone in this office they would say the same.
Amber epitomizes the ideals behind building enduring relationships and strong communities and she does it every day with an infectious smile.
