GQNC staff recognized through IRRI Manager’s Discretionary Awards

Cindy Llorente
Cindy Llorente, a Researcher at Grain Quality and Nutrition Center (GQNC), is IRRI’s Manager’s Discretionary Award (MDA) winner in October 2013.

Cindy was recognized for her extraordinary work in improving the occupational health and safety practices of the GQNC staff. According to her supervisors, “through her consistent efforts, the safety culture in the GQNC has improved immensely, from its already high emphasis on safety. Laboratory rules and safety habits are now being followed more closely by staff and students. Her ability and dedication to improve laboratory culture has been an exemplary example of performance that is above and beyond what is expected…”

Cindy was chosen after a nomination process which began at Organizational Unit (OU) level and which included a review and assessment by the relevant Deputy Director General.

Cindy is the ninth MDA recipient since the program was first launched in June 2013.

IRRI continues to receive MDA nominations and enables managers (NRS Job Levels 7 to 8, PDF and IRS) to recognize single instances of extraordinary work performed by IRRI Nationally Recruited Staff (NRS) in headquarters and country offices.
