Huge congratulations to Abi Thorley, the latest winner of SG World’s Employee of the Month initiative, for April 2017!
Abi, who is PA to Sales & Marketing Director Richard Nichols, has been a member of the SG World family for 6 years and is well known across the organisation as never being seen without a smile, no matter what her day throws at her. Abi embodies all of SG World’s company values, whether it’s doing the right thing, doing things the right way, being the best you can be or looking for new and fresh ways of working.
Abi’s role sees her deal with a wide variety of tasks, projects and challenges. Many of these are well documented events across the company, including assisting with the planning and organisation of our Annual Company Briefing Days, the Monthly and Annual Sales Meetings and the Annual New Year Quiz. Abi also works quietly in the background, helping the Sales and Marketing Departments run smoothly every day.
Abi wasn’t just nominated for her expertise and professionalism, but also for her calm and helpful demeanour. A true natural at living the SG World values, Abi is well thought of not just by the people who she works directly with but by the whole company. This is despite her quite frankly sickening youth and amazing work wardrobe which is the envy of the office!
A rather embarrassed and modest Abi told us: “I really didn’t expect this at all! It was a lovely surprise and I felt a little bit emotional! I really caught me off guard. Thank you everyone.”
Abi’s line manager Richard Nichols said: “Abi is universally respected and liked by colleagues all around the business. It is not just the quality of Abi’s work that we notice every day but the absolute commitment she shows to SG World and her work family. Abi is always smiling and nothing is ever too much trouble. A deserving winner who is a shining example of SG World’s values.”
Introduced in January 2017, SG World’s Employee of the Month scheme has now recognised 4 very well deserving members of staff who make a difference to their colleagues, customers or the overall business every day and who deserved a big pat on the back. When a “thank you” just doesn’t seem enough, Employee of the Month is there to recognise those staff who have gone beyond the call of duty. It might be the person who makes a tight deadline or deals with moving goalposts, but still delivers. Or maybe it’s the person working quietly away in the background, being a silent SG World hero.
Biggest congratulations to you, Abi – you truly deserve it!
