Earlier this month, our annual staff awards ceremony celebrated the hard work and commitment that our teams have given to help us achieve so much in 2018. We are always immensely proud of the Clarity team, but this year has been a particularly successful one for our business and the individuals that work here.
Now in its third year, our staff awards event recognises and congratulates all of our team members for their achievements and successes throughout the year, as well as rewarding their commitment and loyalty to the business, with long service awards. It is not only a fun way to celebrate their efforts, but it also allows us to share successes and best practice across the business.
We are delighted to announce our 2018 winners.
Winners: Hayley Bosworth and Aiden Hill
Having maintained our ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certifications since 2011, this year we worked towards the new version of the standards that ensure our business delivers the highest standards of quality and service. Steering us through the rigorous auditing process was Hayley Bosworth, whose meticulous work to oversee our accreditations and general governance holds our business together and enables us to continuously improve the performance of our operations.
Joint winner of this award was Aiden Hill. Aiden has taken on increased responsibilities for finance this year and he now looks after our expanding operations team. Popular with both our staff and customers, Aiden has adapted to his new role with ease. His exceptional organisational skills and attention to detail have enabled the continued smooth running of our business.
