Home Office Happenings

Each quarter, WoodmenLife presents the Make It Count Award, which recognizes outstanding associates who make a positive impact with internal and external customers. They bring the organization’s mission to life by consistently demonstrating WoodmenLife’s core values from passion for members, service to others, inclusion, collaborative spirit, and open-mindedness.


We are honored to celebrate our 2023 First Quarter Make It Count Award winners, Kim Bach, Help Desk Supervisor and Adam Noonan, Sr. Telecom Engineer.


About the 2023 First Quarter Make It Count Award 

Kim and Adam demonstrated that “every customer counts” by coming up with a solution to help the WoodmenLife Human Resources Department. They implemented a solution that can quickly handle inbound employment verification inquires.


On a regular basis, current and past associates call the main WoodmenLife HR phone line for assistance with their employment verification. When HR was presented with the challenge of handling these requests more quickly, Kim thought of a solution. She reached out to Adam to see if an extra menu or additional prompts could improve the phone process.


Following this, Adam developed and added prompts to the HR phone line. Now, when associates call the HR phone line, they can press a selection and quickly find their employee verification. Adding these prompts impacts the speed of retrieving the information. It also allows the individual to own the process and get their information quickly. Additionally, it reduces the time Human Resources spends returning or re-routing the call.

Throughout this process, Kim and Adam modeled our core values of “Open-Mindedness” and “Collaborative Spirit.” They were open to trying new ideas and driving real results for WoodmenLife’s Human Resources Department through collaboration and teamwork. They both shared in WoodmenLife’s commitment to our goals, our associates and our customers.
