Employee Referrals

This month, we are recognizing Odalila Al-Bazoni for referring job seekers to Utah Employment Services.  Not only has Odalila been consistent and reliable but she has referred three hard-working people like her.  Those three new employees have been working at Pro Star since they applied, right alongside her.  Thank you Odalila; keep sending people our way!


Here’s how our referral program works: For every person you refer, who works a minimum of 80 hours, you will receive $20.  There is no limit so you can refer as many people as you like!  The most important thing to keep in mind is to make sure that the people you refer give us your name at the time of application.

Act of Kindness


In lieu of highlighting an employee of the month for June, we'd like to present an Act of Kindness Award to our employee, Tyler Evans.  Tyler provided his own gear to another employee and because of that he was able to start work the next day.  It is not often that people take the time or their own resources to assist others, so when they do, UES feels it is important to show appreciation.  This act of kindness is one of the many things that makes Tyler stand out.  We have received excellent feedback from the supervisors at ABT where Tyler has been working for the last two months.  ABT and Utah Employment Services are happy to have Tyler as part of the team!
