Tammy Zentz, Director of Operations, and Julie Tiberia, Residential Program Manager

At the luncheon honoring the Spring 2019 Employee of the Season, Rainbow presented the Finance Pillar Award and the People Pillar Award.

The Finance Pillar Award recognizes an employee who has contributed significantly to areas including: increasing sales volume, improving operating income and increasing utilization of facilities. The People Pillar Award recognizes an employee who has contributed significantly to areas including: improving employee satisfaction, reducing employee turnover and enhancing staff training and competency.

Rainbow presented the Finance Pillar Award to Tammy Zentz, Director of Operations. Tammy received this award for her work leading the NeuroRehab Campus® (NRC) and the Southfield Center to their highest level of census ever! Tammy has done a remarkable job of creating an environment at the NRC that makes current and prospective clients feel safe and comfortable.

Tammy encourages her team to find creative ways to increase efficiency, and it pays off. Under her leadership, the division is operating more efficiently and is more cost-effective, while maintaining and improving clinical outcomes for our clients!

The People Pillar Award was presented to Julie Tiberia, Residential Program Manager, for her ability to lead and engage her team and to foster excellence as care providers to our clients. In her 12 years as a Residential Program Manager at Rainbow, Julie strives to create the best work environment for her staff and the best care for our clients.

In 2017, Rainbow performed an Employee Engagement Survey company-wide, and Julie’s staff ranked one of the highest in the company for engagement across all categories. When the survey was repeated in 2019, her staff again ranked highest in engagement. Furthermore, Julie was one of only three managers at Rainbow who improved in every category in the two years.

Julie is a demonstrated leader in retaining and inspiring her Rehabilitation Assistants. She encourages professional development and continuing education for her staff and serves as a trainer and mentor for the Managers in Training Program at Rainbow.

Please join us in congratulating Tammy and Julie on this remarkable achievement!
