A fun-filled evening as we recognise our brilliant staff

We recently held an employee reward and recognition award evening with members of our North Tyneside team at the Summerhill Pavilions & Gardens, Newcastle.

The venue is maintained and developed as a community resource by the Summerhill Trust charity and is funded through donations, subscriptions, grants and site hire.

We chose this location because it is a charity venue and we wanted to hire a building where the money would go to a good cause.

It was an informal, relaxing occasion, where we celebrated our successes

A highlight were the Above & Beyond Platinum award and Employee Champions.

The Above & Beyond Platinum award was selected from all of the awards for 2021 and was identified as the best project of the year, Karl Hook and Michael Ellison winning top slot. Karl and Michael successfully reduced labour costs and improved the timeframe on a project resulting in a £7,000 saving so far.

The Employee Champion recognises an employee’s contribution to the community, charity or wider society. This was awarded to John Morrow and Kevin Brown in recognition of the time and effort they put into both charity fundraising and our sports and social events.

We would also like to take the opportunity to thank all of our team for their hard work and commitment to their roles over the past year.
