Roger Barto is Goodwill Fort Worth’s 2015 Team Member of the Year and was honored as such earlier this year at Goodwill Fort Worth’s Annual Operation Team Work Celebration! It’s an honor well deserved. Roger joined the Goodwill family more than 23 years ago in 1992. Known for getting the job down and doing it right the first time, Roger is a welcome and familiar face on the Goodwill Campus loading dock.
Roger has earned a reputation of a hard worker by never letting the dust settle under his feet. Whether he’s been assigned a task or not, he stays busy. As a Material Handler Roger’s responsible for loading and unloading trucks but he does so much more!
Roger can be found sweeping, mopping, and dusting in between loads. He’s got a keen eye for safety and will not hesitate to write a note to supervisors or even the CEO to suggest new ideas or safety measures. One of his favorite tasks is keeping track of the product that’s transported to Goodwill’s local stores daily. In his handy notebook, Roger keeps all the figures, weights and counts of the more than 50 trucks that are serviced on the dock daily.
“The best part of my job is to just work and stay focused,” says Roger.
Roger is an inspiration to all that come into contact with him and a huge help to his team. Congratulations again Roger on being Goodwill Fort Worth’s Team Member of the Year!
