Standing Ovation Award: Andrew Molyneaux

A Standing Ovation is a special reward program at benefitexpress that honors employees who have gone above and beyond in fulfilling our Community Pillars. Nominations are submitted by fellow peers, and are tallied, read and carefully considered before being awarded at our company-wide 'Town Hall' meetings each quarter. Each award is read aloud by our chief operating officer to highlight just how much the winners have done to deserve the recognition — and when their names are finally announced, we rise to our feet in applause (now done virtually, of course)! In addition to this recognition, Standing Ovation Award winners also receive $2,500.

Our latest Standing Ovation Award goes to system specialist on the implementation team, Andrew Molyneaux. Andrew is greatly appreciated at benefitexpress for his enthusiastic approach to his job and always being a team player.

Please join us in celebrating his win and keep reading to learn more about Andrew.

Meet Andrew

Andrew has been working at benefitexpress as a system specialist since March 2019. His coworkers love that he’s always willing to jump into new projects and collaborate with his team to help them find the best solutions.

A day in the life

His typical day includes working on spreadsheets and data review and attending meetings. He says he spends quite a bit of his time reviewing audits and testing configurations to see what works best for a given scenario.

Along with working his own role, his co-workers say Andrew spent most of last year supporting another role as well, and even volunteered to be a mentor to new hires. Talk about a true team player!

Motivation through creativity

Andrew feels the most motivated at work when he gets to find creative ways to solve unusual problems. He enjoys using his creative skills and thinking “outside of the box” when working to solve complicated issues or requests.

His team is very grateful that he continuously steps up and does what needs to be done to keep benefitexpress successful, all with a positive and enthusiastic attitude.

People make all the difference

Andrew deeply appreciates that benefitexpress has a supportive and collaborative culture, and his coworkers are his favorite part about working here. Every time he’s needed assistance, no matter how big or small, someone is always willing to help. He says the people who make up benefitexpress make all the difference.

Since he works remotely Andrew has only been to the office twice, but he’s had a blast during both visits. He likes being able to interact with people face to face and going out as an organization to celebrate. He’s looking forward to a post-vaccine world when we can all get together again. We all agree with you, Andrew!

Andrew has been a true asset to the benefitexpress team during his time here thanks to his drive to his incredible work ethic and collaborative skills. But don’t just take our word for it!
