Stafflex presented its annual Employee of the Year award last week. Huge congratulations to joint winners Poppy Stahelin and Yvonne Reilly!
The award is given to the employee who has shown outstanding performance, dedication and positive attitude throughout the past year.
It was decided that this year, there will be two winners of the award since there was simply no way to split the two stand out individuals.
Yvonne joined Stafflex back in 2014 as a receptionist and has risen through the career ladder to her current role as business support manager, responsible for payroll and operations support. She is currently working towards an AAT Accounting Level 2 qualification.
Poppy has been with Stafflex since 2013 having also started out as a receptionist. She then began to help out in other areas of the business, showing promise and eventually taking up a role as a consultant on the education team in which she has flourished for a number of years.
Managing director, Brian Stahelin commented: “Both Poppy and Yvonne are well deserved winners this year – they’ve had first class attendance and their attitude has always been exceptional. They’re both always reliable and have performed fantastically under difficult circumstances”.
“An interesting fact is that Poppy and Yvonne worked on reception together, before following different career paths. There are more of these examples of this throughout Stafflex which reinforces our continued commitment to professional development amongst our staff.
“We are always looking to identify opportunities to grow and develop the teams to ensure we’re making the most of their skillset and knowledge across the business.”
In recognition of their efforts, Poppy and Yvonne have both received high street vouchers and an engraved crystal award.
