Elicia Monti, a member service representative at the State Universities Retirement System in Champaign, has been named Employee of the Year for 2017. Monti began her career at SURS in 2000 as a member of the PREP team. During the past year, Monti supported the organization by providing superior process training for staff, answering questions on benefit rules and calculations, performing cash receipts and check review functions, and taking on additional calculation duties during peak loads.
She proactively updated SURS training materials and taught several classes for new employees. She also put her keen knowledge of SURS statutes to work by reviewing and providing input on more than 30 pieces of draft legislation. Monti was nominated and selected for the award by her co-workers.
