We were all deeply saddened by the passing of our colleague John Budden back in April last year.
John was so popular with everybody and such a respected member of the team that we created “ The John Budden Memorial Award” for an outstanding employee. This award will be presented annually to an employee who constantly shows dedication and commitment to their role and goes that extra mile.
The award was presented for the first time today and the winning employee for 2014 is Steve Burrell , Warehouse Manager at Protective Packaging.
He was nominated by several people within the company and the nominations clearly indicate that Steve is involved with every department in lots of ways, he’s happy to help anybody, be it delivering office paper to departments, solving business issues, taking control of situations within the warehouse or cheering everyone up with his cheeky banter, nothing appears to be too much trouble for him. He gives 100% to his role and everything he does, he is very well respected by his direct peers and lots of other people in the business.
Steve was visibly shocked when his name was called out and he is delighted and honoured to be the first person to win this Award. Congratulations Steve.
