The Employee of the Month Award allows us to recognize the individual contributions our team members make. At the end of each month, management make time to discuss which employees have especially stood out – this can be anything from an overall positive attitude to an achievement of something out of the ordinary.
Once we have narrowed the list down to three, we ask the other team members to vote for who they believe deserves the award. This promotes team encouragement, and creates a fair work environment in which all members feel essential to the site and important within the system.
We pride ourselves in working as a team and going the extra mile. In April, for example, we were recognised in the contractor’s monthly newsletter. The car park flooded and the entire SouthGate team pulled together to minimise damage and maximum recovery time. Many hands make light work – with steps like these we hope to continue to encourage positivity and creativity within our team.
