Every month, Robinson Manufacturing rewards a member of staff who has done something exceptional, whether that’s to help colleagues or customers.

Nominations can be made by any of our colleagues, and the winner is chosen by the leadership team.

For August, the award winners are:

  • Lofty (Ben Massey), nominated by Sue Martin because he’s always willing to help, no matter what the circumstances, and always has a smile on his face – 5 stars!
  • James Ball, nominated by Matt Korny and Adrian O’Leary, for a great work ethic, covering for management holidays as well as travelling weekly to our Cheshire factory and still doing his day job!
  • Dan O’Connor, nominated by Mark Smy for a huge increase in efforts and productivity levels to keep up with the sharp increase in production demands in the factory

This month’s awards were as well earned as ever – congratulations!

How do we choose the Extra Mile Award recipients?

The concept of recognising our employees for going above and beyond their day to day job responsibilities with the Extra Mile Awards has recently been reviewed to align it with our Staff Charter.

This gives us a strong and consistent foundation for how we base our nominations, which – by linking our staff and customer value – are now considered against the following criteria:

  • Innovate
  • Deliver
  • Inspire

Each nomination must be supported by an explanation of how the individual has met the above criteria providing a real sense of the objectives, the performance delivered, other people involved, and the successful achievements or resulting positive impact.

We are aware that Extra Mile is well received by staff and there’s always an interest in seeing who’s receiving the award so we have now opened the process up so that any member of staff can nominate a colleague.
