Employee of the Quarter – Dayton Gibson

OPCD’s Employee of the Quarter
Dayton Gibson

OPCD believes in acknowledging our staff’s successes to help them develop not only professionally, but to also recognize their own true potential. With that goal in mind, OPCD has created the Employee of the Quarter Award to honor employees who go above and beyond to #SHOWUP for the City of New Orleans. Each of our Employee of the Quarter recipients are nominated by their peers for exemplary work and dedication to helping people both on and off the OPCD campus.

We are proud to announce that the recipient of OPCD’s Employee of the Quarter Award for the 2nd Quarter of 2021 is Facilities Manager, Dayton Gibson!


Dayton began working at OPCD back in August of 2008, nearly 13 years ago as a Facilities Technician but with his skillset and determination to always do the job efficiently and effectively, he moved up the ranks to his current position as the Facilities Manager, and now holds the title “Employee of the Quarter.”

“It’s greatly appreciated and it’s nice to be recognized by my peers as someone who works hard to get the job done,” said Dayton. “My goal is to set the bar even higher for myself. I’ll always keep in the back of my mind that I’ve done the work to earn the title ‘Employee of the Quarter’ and that I have to do even better now that I’ve reached this new height.”

Dayton points out that this win not only recognizes his success in embodying #SHOWUP culture at OPCD, but also acknowledges the people who’ve helped guide and assist him along the way.

“Do your absolute best, give it all you’ve got, on and off the job, because hard work will always pay off,” said Dayton. “But most importantly, don’t be afraid to ask for help when necessary. We can’t do everything on our own. We need one another.”

Dayton, thank you for your dedication to outstanding public service and your commitment to OPCD’s Mission of getting the right people to the right place at the right time. You are truly appreciated. #SHOWUP!
