December 2007 pride winner is a another joint award
The voting for the latest PROjEN PRIDE Award was a very close run affair as always, and there were two deserving winners again this quarter. The latest PRIDE Award has been awarded to Katie Abrahams and Donna Donaldson, 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.
This is the ninth quarterly pride award and Katie and Donna join a growing list of extremely popular and hard working employees who have won the award and which includes both site and office based personnel.
Chris Richardson said on behalf of the management team at GSK of Katie “Katie has worked exceptionally hard this year in support of Process Projects and her efforts have been invaluable in helping GSK Capital Projects to (again) meet our targets. More importantly, Katie has taken on a wider role supporting both PROjEN and GSK in more complex issues around SOPs, training, Rollcall etc. Her success in this wider role is mainly due to her ability and willingness to identify and take on problems as they arise, rather than when asked to do so. This means that issues are dealt with early and, if there are situations which require escalation, these in turn are captured early before becoming unmanageable. All this whilst performing her day job and building up an effective administrative team as well.
Well done from all the GSK Managers in Process Projects!”
Whilst Russ Harvey said “Katie has proven to be a great asset to the Capital Projects team and on many occasions has been the glue that has kept it together.
She allows the rest of the project team to focus on the project details, confident in the knowledge that all other support issues have been addressed or will be brought to their attention in time.
She is both friendly and approachable but will ‘put her foot down’ when the situation demands – despite the run-around she can get from some! I fully endorse her nomination for this award”
Peter Strang, on behalf of Greenergy Biofuels Ltd said of Donna’s outstanding work ethic and attention to detail “Greenergy would like to thank Donna for her highly efficient, but understated work on our behalf in Immingham. In particular we would like to recognise her efforts and time she has put in taming the Italians, in getting information from them when most others would have given up! Our thanks and congratulations to you”.
By epitomizing all that the PROjEN PRIDE Award stands for – PROjEN Recognition for Industry Diligence and Enthusiasm – Katie and Donna’s attitude to work is an example to all to ensure PROjEN moves forward and continues to build on the success enjoyed by the company particularly during the last five years of company growth.
