Employee of the Month, July 2017- Sean Turner
Congratulations to The Contact Company’s Employee of the Month for July, Sean Turner.
Sean is a Learning & Development Trainer here at TCC, supporting the training of both new and existing employees. Sean has an incredible work ethic; always positive and willing to offer assistance wherever it is needed. This was observed most recently on a financial services campaign, where his ideas and enthusiasm had a noticeable influence. Sean also takes great pride in helping people to progress within the company- one colleague said that he “gave [them] the confidence” to achieve their current position within the company.
Here are just a few more of the things colleagues had to say about Sean:
“He always has a smile on his face and nothing is ever too much trouble for him. He always puts in the extra effort helping everyone- not just with training, but also with the development of others. Sean is a bubbly person and appreciated by many.”
“Sean is passionate about developing others and is very supportive; his positive energy rubs off on others. People respect him and view him as a good role model. He’s an asset to TCC.”
“I think Sean is absolutely fantastic at what he does and deserves to win Employee of the Month for all of his hard work over the years.”
We had a little chat with Sean to find out what he finds most challenging about his job and what he gets up to in his spare time…
1.What’s the best thing about your job?
I can honestly say the best thing is the team I work with- we have a good laugh and all get on really well (you all owe me a pint).
2. Is there anything people may not know about you?
I once held a tiger in Singapore Zoo.
3. If you could be invisible for the day, what would you do and why?
Pretend to be a ghost and annoy/freak people out! …and maybe fight crime.. depends how I was feeling at the time.
4. What do you find most challenging about your job?
Besides these questions, I would say back-to-back training during ‘ramp’ [ramp-up in numbers for peak times such as Christmas] can be challenging at times.
5. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Going out for food (yes I am a 30+ year old foody now) and obviously drinks!
6. Do you have any nicknames?
Not really, just the usual: “The Man”, “Legend”, “Hero” etc… Although there was a time when some people in work would sometimes call me Ste (may have been a little mix up, though…).
7. What did you want to be when you were younger?
A Billionaire! I also went though a stage of wanting to be one of the X-Men, then a Pro Wrestler, then a Fireman…
Congratulations, Sean, and thank you for all of your hard work.
