Carolyn Kollmann

Personnel Generalist
Oldfather Business Cooperative

June 2019

“Carolyn has quickly become an expert in her role in the OBC. She is the go-to person for all things personnel related. If she doesn’t know the answer, she makes it a priority to quickly identify solutions to questions. Carolyn is sweet and welcoming to everyone that enters the OBC suite!”

“Carolyn has gone out of her way on numerous occasions for the Geography Program and has taken us on willingly and well. We would not be running as smoothly without her and she steps in constantly when there are issues that are above and beyond the requirements of her position. She is consistently serving above and beyond her job description and we can always count on her performance to be outstanding. We could not do what we do without Carolyn!!”

“I want to nominate Carolyn for the applause. She is a bright shining star to everyone that walks in the door. So much so that students come back just to chat with her! Carolyn is extremely helpful, organized, and is able to accomplish a great load of detailed work without mistakes. I am incredibly thankful for our number 8 becoming our infinity”

“I am nominating Carolyn for the vast amounts of work she does for our program. If you need books ordered for courses, or codes for suppressed classes, or any of large array of questions answered, then Carolyn is the person to go to. It's not just that she knows how to do all these things, but that she does it promptly and with a wonderful attitude. She is a pleasure to work with.”

“As student worker for OBC, Carolyn has been nothing short of welcoming, patient, courteous, and dependable. She consistently goes above and beyond both in her line of work and in assisting me with my duties. She maintains a positive attitude and strong work ethic at all times. I can go to her for anything.”

“Carolyn is absolutely the most calm and collected person, she constantly remains cool under intense pressure and is a pleasure to work with at all times. She helps all of us remain grounded and professional and is a undeniably the best person for our unit and in her specialization. She strives to make sure each person she interacts with feels important and is understood, and also understands everything going on—they truly get an amazing service in working with her. She wholeheartedly deserves an Applause!!”

“They say you should “make sure you have the right people on the bus” when staffing positions. Carolyn is, without a doubt, the right person for this position. Every day Carolyn exemplifies why this is true. She is professional, efficient, organized and very detail-oriented. More importantly she is warm, caring and welcoming. Carolyn has instituted many procedures to insure personnel actions are processed accurately and entered on time. She has amazing customer service skills and treats every employee in a way that she would want her own children treated. She builds relationships with new employees from the point she first meets them. Carolyn puts the ‘person’ in the Personnel Generalist! It should also be recognized that Carolyn is very team focused. She is supportive of her teammates in the OBC and is always willing to represent the team or college on committees. She recognizes the workstyles of others and adjusts her processes accordingly. She is willing to cover the office when others are unavailable. Carolyn makes sure that ‘life events’ don’t go unnoticed and can be a good listener and counselor if needed. In short, Carolyn is a huge asset to the OBC and to the college. We are fortunate that she is part of our team and I, for one, would like to start the Applause in her honor!”
