A year has rolled by and it’s TrEAT time again. TrEAT—an acronym of Trustworthy, Excel, Advocate and Team—is our much-coveted internal award, created to recognize one RoseRyan consultant whose work and approach throughout the year has exemplified our values. TrEAT nominations are accepted from RoseRyan gurus throughout the year. 

Even in a group of colleagues as close-knit as ours, this year’s honoree Michelle Perez stands out for her commitment to the team. Take the time, for example, when a fellow consultant had to leave a client assignment early to go on maternity leave (those darned kids; they never stick to the schedule). Everyone else was busy on other engagements and Michelle herself was about to go on vacation. But when she heard about the client’s predicament, she canceled her vacation and swooped in to save the day.

A founding member of our Values Team, Michelle walks her talk. She is generous with her time and ideas, and boldly tackles projects that are out of her wheelhouse—like giving the inaugural “Tips from the Trenches” presentation to the whole team at a company meeting. Well done, Michelle, and congratulations! Thank you for living RoseRyan values every day.
