Influenced by internal and external feedback our Great People Awards allow colleagues and clients to recognise and reward those who have gone the extra mile in their roles.

L.O.V.E Award

Zee Sheldon

Marketing Executive, Zee Sheldon was crowned winner of the L.O.V.E Award which is awarded to the employee who has achieved most recognition for ‘Living Our Values Everyday’.

Based on Kudos points from peers, Zee received a total of 12 badges in Quarter 4 – with most given for demonstrating our Community and Excellence values.

Notably, she was recognised for her commitment to organising an array of staff and client events including fundraising for various charities, as well as training and business exhibitions.

Special note was also given for going above and beyond to organise staff Christmas parties, including a festive day for families and the grand opening of our new offices.

Despite receiving the award, Zee was also recognised for issuing the most peer recognition across the whole of the business along with the wider Marketing team.

Well done Zee!

Outstanding Customer Service Award

Matt Coppin

Having previously won the award in Quarter 1 and 2, Field Engineer Matt Coppin excelled once more and claimed the Outstanding Customer Service Award for a third time. The result also marks a clean sweep for his team, with Field Engineer Daniel Gates shining through in Quarter 3.

Based on consistently positive feedback from clients, the fact that Matt has won this award 3 times in the last 12 months is a real testament to the fantastic job he is doing.

Feedback from clients included:

‘Couldn’t have asked for a better technician, great service.’

‘Matthew was really helpful and patient with staff who needed to ask questions. They reported back that he didn’t make them feel silly for asking simple queries. He was very professional and polite throughout our computer upgrade.’

Congratulations once again Matt, we’re very proud to have you on the team!

Employee of the Year 2017

Alex Nicol

Our Employee of the Year Award was presented to Alex Nicol who ranked in the top 5 employees for every list used to determine our overall champion.

A former winner of the L.O.V.E award, Alex consistently ranked in the top 5 employees giving and receiving Kudos.

In addition to completing his performance objectives, he was also recognised for attendance and his general willingness to go above and beyond in his role.

Specific examples include studying at home for a diploma in Team Leadership, leading our internal customer service training programme and volunteering as Fire Marshall.

With his appetite to continually learn and take on new challenges, Alex is an excellent example to the rest of the team and is a very deserving Employee of the Year.

Well done Alex. Keep up the great work!
