Ohio Industrial Commission Inventory Control Specialist 2 Named January 2024 Employee of the Month

COLUMBUS, OH – The Ohio Industrial Commission congratulates Josh Whittington on being named as the Employee of the Month for January 2024.

“Josh's main responsibility is to oversee the Commission's central supply orders, but he's more than that to Fiscal and the Commission,” his Employee of the Month nominator said. He is always looking for ways he can help out the team or others within the Commission.”

Josh’s nominator continued: “He's quick to respond to any inquiry sent his way, which is greatly appreciated. What's even more appreciated are his actions when he doesn't know the answer. It's reassuring to know he will try his best to figure it out. His positive attitude and willingness to learn new things have proven to be assets to the team.”

Josh’s supervisor, Sarah Perez, Director of Fiscal Management, stated: “Josh is a deserving candidate who works hard, and has a positive attitude. It's not uncommon to hear Josh say, ‘I've never done that before, but I'll give it a try.’”

Whittington was nominated by one of his coworkers and chosen for the award by the agency’s Employee of the Month Committee. Josh was previously named Employee of the Month in August 2007.

Josh is an Inventory Control Specialist 2 in Fiscal Management. He started his career at the Ohio Industrial Commission in 1996.

Josh resides in Baltimore, Ohio.
