Here at Fickling Construction, we’re proud of our team and the collective talent and dedication that they bring to the table every day. In this Employee Spotlight series, we aim to shine a light on the individuals that contribute significantly to our operations and our culture. Today, we are delighted to feature Camila, our extraordinary Project Coordinator.
Defining the Role
Camila has been a part of Fickling Construction since May 2018. As a Project Coordinator, she works closely with Project Managers, aiding in the organization and implementation of various projects. Her work is instrumental to the successful running of our projects, and her keen eye for detail helps keep everything running smoothly.
What initially attracted Camila to Fickling Construction was the opportunity to utilize her knowledge and grow with the company. Being a small yet impactful entity in Jacksonville, the company presented her with an arena to explore and evolve her professional expertise.
During her time so far at Fickling, Camila has been involved in implementing technology and various programs that have effectively reduced processing times, minimized errors, and made important information accessible to everyone. This involved rolling out systems for things like vacation time requests, employee training, payroll, and even employee evaluations – all geared toward digital efficiency.
Through the implementation of Microsoft Access for different reports, she has streamlined essential processes such as tracking employment authorization expiration and wage averages. This evolution has provided us with a seamless and paperless work environment.
When asked about her experience at Fickling Construction, Camila shared,
“I love working for this Company. This is a place where people feel heard and respected. Fickling is a company with such a good leader, Alan Fickling, who puts his heart into everything he does. The care we show for our employees, our customers, and our community speaks volumes about Fickling’s values…The company supports my professional growth 100%. In my five years here, they have given me the opportunity to be in three different areas – AP, HR, and now Project Coordinator.”
