A Journey of Dedication and Purpose: Daniel Williams, TECH’s Employee of the Month

April 4, 2024

At TECH, our mission is not just a statement; it’s a commitment to enriching the lives of individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Behind every successful endeavor lies the dedication and passion of our staff members, and this month, we are proud to shine a spotlight on Daniel Williams, Accounts Payable Specialist, our Employee of the Month.

For twenty-eight years, Daniel had been a steadfast member of the TECH family. When asked about his tenure he recalled how he stumbled upon the opportunity during a time of uncertainty. “I was out of a job,” he’d explain, “and I saw the ad. It sounded interesting, so I thought I would apply. Next thing I knew, I was part of TECH.”

What kept him rooted in TECH for nearly three decades wasn’t just the stability it provided, but the sense of belonging. “We’re like one big family here,” he remarked. “We help each other out when things need to get done.”

But what truly fueled Daniel’s passion was the opportunity to interact with the clients. Throughout the year, he’d engage with them, witnessing their creativity firsthand. For Daniel, creativity wasn’t just a pillar of TECH; it was a guiding light. “Seeing the consumers create things,” he’d say, “and how they feel when it’s completed just the way they had planned it in their mind—it’s truly special.”

Daniel’s role at TECH wasn’t just a job; it was a calling. He found immense fulfillment in knowing that his work contributed to improving the lives of the consumers. “Knowing that I’m helping to provide the consumers with a better way of life—it’s what keeps me going,” he’d affirm.

Among the memories Daniel cherished was the playful prank his colleagues pulled one Monday morning—wrapping his desk, chairs, and everything on it in tin foil. It was a testament to the camaraderie and lightheartedness that filled the TECH workplace.

Outside of work, Daniel found solace in simple pleasures. Watching hockey games, solving jigsaw puzzles, and completing word searches provided moments of relaxation amidst his busy schedule.

As Daniel reflected on his journey with TECH, he couldn’t help but feel grateful for the experiences, the relationships, and the sense of purpose it had given him over the years. In every interaction, in every project, he saw the transformative power of dedication and creativity, reaffirming his commitment to the TECH family and its mission.
