Employee of the Month, October 2017
Congratulations to The Contact Company‘s Employee of the Month for the month of October, Sean Clarke.
Sean is a Team Leader on a busy mobile/broadband campaign, and is always full of life and happy to help! Sean recently moved from a large logistics campaign and wasted no time getting to know his new team: “Sean took it upon himself to really learn the nature of our campaign, to enable him to understand what we do as a team- this in itself is a huge help and clearly shows how much he cares.”
The Contact Company CEO, Asif Hamid MBE, praised Sean for all of his hard work over the years: “the fact that many of these nominations came from Customer Service Representatives is all the more impressive; in the build-up to our busiest time of year, you are having a phenomenally positive influence on the people who matter the most. I suspect your new campaign has only seen the beginning of your commitment and enthusiasm.”
Sean received 13 nominations from colleagues- the highest amount of nominations we’ve seen for an individual since the Employee of the Month programme began. Here’s just a few of the fantastic things Sean’s colleagues had to say about him…
“He’s changed the perspective of every Advisor on the campaign- there’s a much more positive ‘buzz’ and overall productivity has risen. We’ve all loved having Sean here and appreciate the effort he has made, and the changes he has brought about. Thanks, Sean, for your hard work and for making the campaign great again!”
“Sean has done so much in the last three weeks to boost moral on the team; he has taken the time to learn our job role as well as running his own team alongside us whilst our Manager is away. He is always approachable regardless of his heavy workload. The client visited on Thursday and was very impressed with the processes Sean had put in place.”
“Sean’s a fantastic leader with a great understanding of how people need to work together to create positive results.”
“He does nothing but help everyone else.”
“He’ll do anything for any of us and always makes sure that any problems are sorted. Thank you, Sean!!”
“He’s helped clear-up a lot of problems and fears the team were having; we’re all extremely grateful for his help.”
We had a chat with Sean to find out what he most enjoys about his job and what he gets up to in his spare time…
1.What do you most enjoy about being a Team Leader?
I love coaching and being able to have a positive effect on peoples’ development. I enjoy the daily challenges a Team Leader faces, too!
2. What do you think you’d be doing if you weren’t here?
If my life had taken a different direction, I would’ve been a computer game programmer living in Norway.
3. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Building computers for my friends and family, cycling and anything else my wife asks me to do.
4. What’s the one thing you’d change about your job, if you could?
I think the one thing I would change about my job, is to spend more time with the client and learn a different aspect of the job.
5. What’s the most exciting thing you’ve ever done?
A sky dive for Children in Need in my last job.
6. Got any good jokes?
Did you hear about the Farmer of the Year award?… for “a man outstanding in his field”.
7. If you were a chocolate bar, what would you be and why?
Fruit and Nut, because they’re delicious and one of my favourite treats at the weekend with a glass of Bear.
8. Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
I’d like to progress to Operations Manager within my current campaign.
Thanks for all of your hard work, Sean!
