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 November, the award winners are:

  • Shelby Bird – nominated by Mark Rolf – She is consistently excelling at everything thrown at her, delivers all work to a very high standard, remains unflappable, and is always looking for ways to improve processes.
  • Linda Goode – nominated by Greg Farrar – Without being asked, she’s been helping guide some of the new starters which has taken some of the pressure off John. Teamwork.
  • Tony Yearsley – nominated by James McLoughlin – He works like a trooper, never complains and always offers to help others out. He is extremely polite to his colleagues and never takes a day off sick. He gives us all something to aspire to.

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.
