Employee of the Month, January 2017 – Stuart Lindsay
Congratulations to January’s Employee of the Month, Stuart Lindsay!
Stuart is a trainer on a fast-paced TV/signal-based campaign. There’s always lots to learn, and lots to update the team on, and Stuart has excelled in his first few months as campaign trainer; suggesting processes to improve the overall training performance of his campaign, Stuart has displayed a high level of dedication and passion.
TCC Training Lead, Kaley Foran: “Since becoming a campaign trainer, [Stuart] has been so passionate and enthusiastic about the training and development of all employees (especially Advisors). He is like a breath of fresh air to speak to and is always in regular communication with myself about the projects he is working on. Stuart aims to improve the quality of specific processes we have in place for new Advisors- he has come to me with various ideas, which are fantastic!”
Stuart has been commended for his ability to look at the bigger picture; understanding how a robust process for one campaign can be cascaded to have a positive effect on the business as a whole…
Learning & Development Trainer, Dave Hargreaves: “He has quickly proven himself as an example, with a personable focus and a genuine care for the training he delivers. Stuart exudes positivity and is 100% motivated for driving success. Stuart’s positive approach and attitude towards his work is clear to anyone who receives training from him; he is an excellent example of the ‘entrepreneurial spirit’ we promote as a business.”
Stuart has also been sure to cater to the team’s needs when designing and delivering his training, and has made suggestions that he feels will benefit the development of his colleagues.
Account Manager, Andrew Callander: “Stuart has engaged with the Advisors to harvest their views on how things could be better and tailored his training to their needs (both as a team and as individuals). This level of detail has had a big impact on the team’s engagement.”
