1 month ago
Lights glittered, delicious food was eaten, and decorations sparked, as we recognised the outstanding work of employees at our Night with the Stars event.
Throughout the evening, we congratulated our long serving employees, retirees and 2019 Stars of the Month in a wonderful evening of celebration.
The event was attended by guest of honour, The Right Honourable Mayor of Reading as well as Chairman of the our new Charity of the Year, Sport in Mind.
At the end of a lovely evening, we announced our Driving Star, Support Star and Engineering Star – from which the title of overall Star of the Year for 2020 was chosen.
We awarded Support Star to our amazing Network Supervisor Adam Conner; Engineering Star of the Year was awarded to Jordan Hicks, our Master Technician; and Jennie Hughes was awarded our Driving Star of the Year.
After these were awarded, tension mounted as the evening build up to announce our overall Star of the Year who was... *drum roll*...
Jordan won the award for his for outstanding diligence, repairing vehicles for service and demonstrating a huge commitment to excellence in engineering. He shows a great work ethic and ‘can do’ attitude as well as making a huge input overall.
Jordan was overwhelmed to be crowned as he was recognise for the huge strides he had made this year. He had been rightly praised by his managers for his knowledge and leadership, mentoring the apprentices and helping to continue the tradition of the engineering department of high quality work.
Well done to Jordan and all our stars!
