Here are great stories from other nominees all of them demonstrating colleagues going above and beyond.
- Mike Hewitt, Sales Rep Readymix Northern, Cluster 7 Yorkshire. Mike had to think quickly when driving back from a customer appointment. As he approached a roundabout the car in front of him crashed due to excess speed. Mike quickly assessed the situation and after seeing smoke appear from the engine he retrieved his fire extinguisher from the boot of his car, helped null the smoke and helped the driver escape.
- Paul Gasson, Plant Supervisor North London Mortar Plant. Paul has been coming to work at 3 to 3.30am every single morning for the past few weeks to facilitate early morning bagged screed deliveries to our customer, Arvin & Sons Ltd, for a new Sainsbury’s store in Nine Elms, London. Without Paul’s commitment and willingness to go the extra mile we would not have been able to secure and supply this contract.
- Chris Balby, IHC Readymix Northern. A customer came for 48m3 on Saturday morning with a same day order. We didn’t have enough trucks to cover this work so Chris was rung at home and he was at the Plant within 20 minutes. If Chris hadn’t responded we would not have been able to supply this order. The customer was happy and because we responded at such short notice the customer is more likely to use us again.
