People are the engine of every great business, and our people are core to making our business great. So, we thought we’d tell you more about some of those people. Why do they come to work each day? And what do they look forward to doing when the leave the office? In our monthly Employee Spotlight series, you’ll get a glimpse at one featured employee.

Importance of Company Core Values
Every month, we recognize employees who exceed the day-to-day expectations of their role in the previous month. In evaluating each candidate, we look for employees who embody the company’s core values. Our core values are commitment, results driven, integrity, teamwork, continuous improvement, and fun. Employees are motivated both by the opportunity to achieve this recognition as well as grow alongside coworkers who live our core values every day.
Title Specialist, Taunia Davis, was recently chosen as our April “Employee of the Month” because she continually rises to challenges and lives out AmurEF’s core values daily. Her COMMITMENT to the team and success of her department is demonstrated through her endless TENACITY. Taunia is the first person to volunteer to assist others, even when her own plate is full. And through TEAMWORK, Taunia has worked to help find efficiencies in the Repo Title process and always does so with a positive and supportive attitude. Recently the Title Department added two new team members and Taunia’s natural AGILITY immediately kicked in - working with the new team members by providing input and effort to help make this new team productive and successful.
Taunia has a unique ability of seeking the best way to assist and fulfill the expectations of customers. She serves with INTEGRITY while appropriately balancing the best interest of the company and its customers. Taunia is truly an awesome motivator to all and proves that RESULTS are important to her. Even when participating in extracurricular company activities, she shows great enthusiasm and focus.
We are honored to have Taunia as part of the AmurEF team and as the new employee of the month. Congrats Taunia!
