Upstate Faces, October 2007 - Lucy Temelkovski, Human Resources

October 2007—Lucy Temelkovski

As the front desk receptionist and administrative assistant in the Human Resources Department, Lucy Temelkovski has been a familiar face to Upstate’s internal and external customers since 2001.  In this capacity, Lucy is responsible for assisting applicants, processing employment paperwork, participating in new employee orientation, visa renewals, processing advertisement and coordinating the SU college work study program. When asked what she likes most about her job, Lucy responded, “I enjoy the daily contact with the public and assisting applicants, new hires and our employees.”

Outside of work, Lucy enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons. In addition, she loves to travel to different Caribbean destinations and her home country of Macedonia, reading, and being a dedicated soccer mom.  When asked what she wants people to know about her, she replied, “Although my dream and plan was to become an elementary teacher while attending college in Macedonia, changing paths in the United States has given me even bigger opportunities.  I am very happy in my role and extremely proud to be a part of the HR team.” 

The Human Resources Department recently held an internal HR Customer Service Motto contest in which Lucy developed the winning motto, “Your Satisfaction is Our Success”.  
In addition, Lucy was recently promoted to a Human Resources Associate position, and will begin her new role this month.  In this capacity, she will be responsible for classified (SG) service recruitment activities.

Lucy, you are the epitome of excellent customer service and are appreciated for all that you do for our internal and external customers. Congratulations and best wishes in your new position and on winning the recent HR Customer Service Motto contest!
