Now in their fourth year, the SF Employee of the Year Awards are a great way for staff to recognise the contributions of fellow work colleagues. Colleagues who have made significant contributions in areas related to the improvement of quality, performance, growth of the business and customer satisfaction. Each year we call on our teams to nominate a fellow coworker who consistently exceeds job expectations and in their own way, upholds SF Core values of being: Professional, Competitive and Flexible.
This year the winner at our SF UK site was Jonny Browne, Proposal Engineer, followed closely behind by Steve Fossey. Jonny, who has been with the company for 2 years received the following praise from his colleagues:
Jonny has a very polite telephone manner, he is always willing to help others with extra work and nothing is too much trouble. Jonny’s standard of work is consistently high, this is reflected in the quality of proposals/drawings sent to customers. He takes great pride in his work and is exceptionally approachable and always willing to help/train other team members. Jonny is a great communicator with a positive attitude who always goes the extra mile.
Also, collecting their 10 Year Service Awards from CEO Seamus Farrell was Jim Meade, Design Engineer and Steve Fossey, Senior Designer. Retention of staff and employee satisfaction is important at SF and it’s great to celebrate an individual’s dedicated service within the business.
It was an outstanding triple win for the SF UK site at the Hunts Post Business Awards last night.
We are so proud of Martyn Rose, whose hard work, dedication and mentoring skills earnt him the Employee of the Year Award.
It was our commitment to the ongoing progression of our team that earnt us the Training & Development Award.
And to top the evening off we were credited with the Overall Business of the Year Award which we are truly honoured to receive. Well done team and congratulations to all the other winners and finalists, what a great night.
We are very proud to have been awarded The Customer Excellence Award by the Sligo Chamber of Commerce. Congratulations to all the team in SF Grange, this award is a true testament to all your hard work and a reflection of our brand’s commitment to consistently deliver excellent customer service. We would also like to thank Sligo Chamber of commerce and our competitors in our category Sligo office supplies and Radisson Sligo.
We are so proud of our staff from both sites, coming together to help friend and colleague, Padraig Regan, raise vital funds for life-changing medical treatment which wasn’t available in Ireland.
A team of almost 30 staff from SF Ireland, battled through strong winds and almost zero visibility to reach the summit of 5 famous peaks in 3 days.
Whilst in the UK a team of seven staff took on the Nuts Challenge, a 7-km race through and over a selection of grueling obstacles, mostly muddy ones!
Many of you will know Padraig as one of the longest standing employees of SF, Ireland. What you may not know is that 4 years ago, Padraig was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS) which is causing his immune system to attack his body.
In August, Padraig traveled to Mexico for Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) a treatment is not available in Ireland. HSCT is a procedure where his immune system is re-booted, which hopefully will stop his MS. The treatment involves harvesting Padraig’s stem cells, having chemotherapy to wipe his existing immune system and re-transplantation of the new cells.
An incredible total of €27,892 was raised for this life-changing treatment which will hopefully prevent Padraig from being confined to a wheelchair and from this disease progressing further.
Congratulations to everyone who took part in these events and all those who so generously donated to these fundraising efforts.
