We are pleased to name our latest ‘Employee of the Month’ award winners, Gordon Loftus, Mobile Supervisor and Jane Osborne, Team Leader, in our Leeds Control Room.
Gordon Loftus, a Mobile Supervisor, in York, has worked with G&K for over 3 years. He is an essential member of the team, responding to multiple activations. His experience and knowledge of response is invaluable. His commitment to the provision of a high quality service, frequently going above and beyond the call of duty, has made him a key figure in the York division. Six months ago he was asked to help with manning the CCTV control room team where, once again, he’s been key in providing a high quality level of service.
When Jane, who is a Team Leader, in our Leeds 24/7 Control Room, attended a confirmed intruder alarm activation at a G&K client’s she saved the day. On entering the building, which externally appeared to be secure, both fire and intruder alarms were sounding. She checked the basement and noticed smoke coming from under a door leading to the next level of the mill. She also observed smoke coming from the lift shaft. Jane alerted our control room and the fire brigade. She ensured that staff arriving for work were kept at a safe distance from the building until the fire brigade arrived to quell the flames.
We introduced our Employee of the Month initiative last year, 2017, as a way of rewarding members of staff who have gone above and beyond in the name of duty. Recipients receive a certificate and an additional day of annual leave.
