Extra Mile September

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 September, the award winners are:


Winners Nominated by Reason for nomination
David Caldwell Susan Martin & Tomasz Prazmo Apart from always being very pleasant and polite he has the patience of a saint. David is always willing to help whenever needed. David is a true superstar – nominated by the whole of RML South East

David consistently demonstrates commitment to the company through his desire to help everyone at all times.

He promotes a team ethic of support through his example to others, which also contributes towards a nice working environment for others.

Oskar Bertulams Tomasz Prazmo Oskar always goes above and beyond to ensure that jobs are complete and finish in good time.  He is always willing to work additional hours when we are at our busiest and encourage others by explaining the need for it.  His attention to detail sets a great example to the newer team members to follow at our high standards.
Anne-Marie Phillips Greg Farrar Anne-Marie has been handling the additional pressure of the Wales & West factory during a stressful time.  Anne-Marie has been proactive in contacting customers to ensure that the site agents expectations match with our deliveries, truly setting the standard in customer service.

Leading by example and becoming the driving force behind a project that aims to provide the best quality goods on time, in full.

Emma Rowley Mark Rolf She continues to excel at her work, and is looking to help in other areas too (for example production bonuses). Solid member of the team who I think should be recognised for her continuous efforts.
Kevin Rennie Robin Ardis For his hard work in assisting and covering for the Maintenance Supervisor Jim Nellies whilst still completing his own work and also for his commitment and positive approach towards any task allocated to him. All round team player.

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
