August 2008 pride winner is a another joint award
The voting for the latest PROjEN PRIDE Award was a very close run affair as usual and there were, again, two deserving winners. The latest PRIDE Award for August 2008 has been awarded to Martin Briggs and Gillian McCandless, both outstanding members of the PROjEN team.
Intended to encourage team working and company involvement, the PROjEN PRIDE Award is open to all members of the PROjEN team and is presented quarterly at the core brief sessions with each ‘winner’ receiving £250 in M&S vouchers. The award has already proved instrumental in encouraging pride in the workplace and rewards good attitude and commitment to both client and company. All employees are aware of the positive impact a PRIDE attitude brings to PROjEN. Martin and Gill join the increasing list of hard working PROjEN personnel who have won the award and which includes both site and office based personnel. Nominations were received for a number of personnel; however both Gill and Martin received the highest number of votes for their outstanding performance.
Both winners received a number of positive comments from those voting, and more specifically comments made by those voting for Martin referred to him as “always being very helpful, polite and willing to listen despite having a heavy workload”. Similarly, Gill received a number of welcomed comments including recognition of her “enthusiastic support to the GSK Team and willingness to go that little bit further” received particular attention. The appreciation shown by their work colleagues makes them both very worthy winners.
John Taylor, PROjEN’s MD said “By epitomizing all that the PROjEN PRIDE Award stands for – PROjEN Recognition for Industry Diligence and Enthusiasm – Martin and Gill’s attitude to work is an example to all, helping to ensure that PROjEN moves forward and continues to build on past successes.”
