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 December, the award winners are:

  • David Caldwell – nominated by Callum Simms – Day in and day out he’s a very VERY busy man but will always find the time to sit down with me and explain or demonstrate something I’m struggling to understand. He doesn’t get paid to do that (well not that I know of) but insists on helping me when honestly he shouldn’t have the time to. David has gone above and beyond for me over the last few weeks and I can honestly say I wouldn’t have the knowledge I have without his help..
  • Tom Taylor – nominated by Matt G – Tom is doing a great job, the schedule is much better since he took it over and his phone skills have improved.
  • Matt Jones – nominated by Glyn Hilson – Has stepped up his game and put more hours in to help the cause.
  • Steve Jones – nominated by Wayne Clarke – Has made a strong start to his time using the saw having previously been on the joist press. His progress has freed up Robbie to fill the gap created by Wayne moving into the Supervisor role

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.
