Last year, we introduced three Core Values to the business: Passion, Responsibility and Engagement. As part of the Employee Satisfaction Surveys this year, we asked employees to nominate their colleagues under each of the core value categories.
As a result of these nominations, four individuals were recognised at the Raymond Brown Christmas Party earlier this month for exemplifying our core values within the workplace. The four employees who were nominated repeatedly by their teams and colleagues were each presented with a John Lewis voucher and an engraved wooden plaque by Chief Operating Officer, Steve Clasby:
Passion – Tom Weeks, Customer Service Supervisor (Raymond Brown Distribution)
(4 years with the business)
Tom was commended on his passion for the business and his “solid enthusiasm and dedication to achieve” by fellow colleagues and that he is “always willing to assist”.
Responsibility – Vanessa Smith, Shift Manager (Raymond Brown Waste Solutions)
(1 year with the business)
Vanessa (pictured) stood out under responsibility. She was described as “always helpful” and that she “always sorts things which need to be fixed, always worries about H&S and never ignores hazards”.
Engagement – Stephen Hall, Driver (Raymond Brown Waste Solutions)
(16 years with the business)
Steve was nominated for his engagement. Colleagues stated that Steve is “always willing to help” and that he “believes in being honest to management if he can see a better course of action to implement”.
One individual, Karl Reed, stood out across all three areas, with some outstanding nominations for his efforts at the A303 IBA Processing Facility:
All Three Core Values – Karl Reed, Site Supervisor (Fortis IBA)
(21 years with the business)
Karl was one individual who stood out significantly and who was nominated repeatedly for all three values, his colleagues described him as; “committed and he cares a great deal about his team” and that he is “enthusiastic, driving the business forward.” Other comments included that Karl is constantly “feeding back lots of ideas and coming up with brilliant solutions to issues affecting the operational areas of the business” and that he “makes you feel like part of the team and is looking out for your safety”.
