Employee of the Year - a chance to shine amongst your colleagues. Every year is the same, you (and your colleagues) pretend like it's no big deal and you're "not bothered this year", when in fact, in the lead up to voting day, you go home every night plotting how you can grab yourself some extra votes by squeezing in an extra tea round for your team or setting up 'you vote for me, I'll vote for you' false promises.

With jokes aside, it's an extremely important occasion here at Datum RPO, as we use it as a commemoration for ex-employee Steve Fulwell, who tragically lost his life in 2010. Steve was a one-in-a-million employee who always put people first and was genuinely motivated by the satisfaction of finding people work. Hence, since 2010, we chose to rename the award: Steve Fulwell Employee of the Year. 

This year, we have two seperate Employee of the Year awards, one for the Datum RPO team and one for the Back Office team. So, the awards up for grabs were as follows:


Steve Fulwell Employee of the Year: Datum RPO

As experts in procuring and managing temporary and contract agency labour, we provide a complete RPO service that helps our customers become more efficient, whilst delivering savings of up to 12% on existing spend.

The runners-up and winners of the award were as follows: 

Runner-up: Ashley Moore, Recruitment Business Partner 

Ashley is and certainly has been an extremely well-valued and competent employee since his arrival back in 2003. Whilst he originally joined our sister company, Omega Resource Group, he made the move to Datum RPO in 2014 and has dramatically improved its management and hiring processes.

 

Winner: Nathan Freemantle, Account Executive 

Nathan joined us in January 2016 as a Recruitment Support Officer and has since thrived at the company. As an Account Executive, he now helps to manage one of our largest accounts, and succeeds in every sense. He has grown phenomenally since his arrival and continues to surprise us all! A worthy award for a worthy winner, take a bow Nath!

Steve Fulwell Employee of the Year: Datum RPO (Back Office Division)

Our Back Office Division consists of all the staff who work 'behind the scenes' to ensure all operations run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. This includes our HR team, Marketing team, Finance, Payroll & Accounts teams and Administration teams. 

The runners-up and winners of the award in the Back Office Division were as follows:

Runner-up #1: Sharon Atkinson, Finance Director

Sharon has been with us for 7 years and, since her arrival, has significantly improved the financial management of Datum RPO. Always smiling, always helpful and always working! In the words of one of her colleagues, "Sharon has consistent high levels of work and continuing support of the business whilst faced with many changes and challenges within the Finance team."

 

Winner #1: Trudy Chudleigh, Receptionist

Ah, our Trude. Possibly the most thoughtful, friendly, helpful and happy person to ever land on this Earth. Winner by a landslide, her constant support and humour is clearly appreciated amongst her colleagues. We'll end on this pleasant quote from one of her colleagues, "Trudy will always say hello and take time out of her day to talk, will help anyone who needs her assistance and makes everyone smile!" Well done Trude, a deserved winner!
