Temp of the Month Christmas Special – December 2017

Congratulations to our winner, Phil Tomlinson from Ripley!

Phil has worked for us since March, for two of our branches. When we called our client to let them know that Phil had won, the whole office cheered!

Our consultant Shannon popped down to see him and present him with his prize and certificate. She says “Everyone in the factory knows about this. Phil is absolutely over the moon! As I left he said ‘If you ever need me to stay and cover a shift just give me a ring, I won’t let you down!'” she added “Our client has nominated him as he always goes above and beyond and is very dedicated – yesterday he cancelled going out for dinner because he didn’t want to let us or them down.

Our client nominated Phil himself, giving a list of reasons why he should win:
• Nothing is too much trouble when Phil is on shift.
• He has doubled back several times with no complaints.
• On more than 1 occasion come back into work after his shift has finished to help us keep lines running.
• He never complains just gets on with it.
• He takes pride in the tasks that he is doing rather than half hearted.
• Always willing to stop and do extra hours to help us get the job done.

Our Managing Director, Marc says “It’s great to hear that a company has this much commitment to a temporary worker”

Phil tells us that he will be spending his winnings with his wife after the Christmas period.
