The Board is celebrating with our first 'Going the Extra Mile' award winners lunch in Birmingham. A great way of recognising and saying thank you to some of the great people we have in our organisation.
Axis colleagues and customers put forward nominations of employees who consistently achieved amazing things in their jobs, and in return, the Board of Directors will take the well deserved winners out for a lunch.
Below are the nominations for Regional Lunch Winners:
Nominated by: Cliff Wynne Jones
"Mike shows continued professionalism on a day to day basis. His work ethic and reliability, combined with his attitude towards work is second to none. Mike was recently involved in an incident with a member of the public. As he waited to board and clean the train approaching the platform, he noticed that a gentleman was struggling to breathe. Mike used his first aid knowledge and guided him away from the platform. The gentle-man kept going in and out of consciousness and states of seizures. Mike kept the gentleman’s airways open and breathing whilst waiting for an ambulance. A well deserved extra mile!’’
Nominated by: David Asquith, Richard Jemson, Family of Gill (onsite cleaner) ‘‘Brian was the duty security officer on shift the day one of the onsite cleaners fell ill. Brian was concerned that Gill, the cleaner, may collapse at anytime. Brian, along with the cleaning staff, seeked help via our control centre and an ambulance was called. Brian was on hand throughout the entire incident Gill was taken to hospital where her life was saved.
