July 2016 Employee of the Month

Sarah Cardoza

Administrative Services Department

Department Directors for the City of Porterville have chosen Sarah Cardoza as the Employee of the Month for July 2016.  Sarah works as an Administrative Analyst in the Human Resources Division of Administrative Services.  She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Services/Business Management, and holds the designation of Certified Labor Relations Professional by the National Public Employer Labor Relations Association.

As an HR Administrative Analyst, Sarah is responsible for the daily administration of employee health and retirement benefits.  This includes assisting in the evaluation of contracts, renewals, and plan revisions; coordinating dissemination of plan information; overseeing claims administration; and keeping apprised of changes in applicable state and federal law, in particular the Affordable Care Act.  Sarah also assists in the collective bargaining process with four of the six employee associations, and is the go-to person for compiling and analyzing data.    If that wasn’t enough to keep Sarah busy, she also assists with managing employee leave, developing and conducting supervisor training sessions, and conducting administrative investigations.  Sarah is a consummate professional who is passionate about her job.  Time and time again she tackles the most challenging assignments and executes them with proficiency and professionalism.  She is a tremendous asset to her Department, not to mention the City.

Sarah and her husband Darin have two beautiful daughters, nine-year-old Sophia, and five-year-old Makayla.  When she is not serving the City of Porterville, Sarah enjoys spending time with her family, hosting summer BBQs, and vacuuming her house with her coveted Rainbow vacuum to keep it spotless.  Yes, vacuuming!   When asked to describe her favorite aspect of her job, Sarah says that she loves that her job requires her to be a lifelong learner, as she is required to stay on top of ever-changing labor laws.  She is also appreciative of the City, and the relationships she has established with her co-workers.

The City of Porterville is fortunate to have an employee like Sarah.  Please join me in congratulating the July 2016 Employee of the Month, Sarah Cardoza!
