Our Employee of the Month scheme has been running for 12 months now and over the past year, each month’s winner has received £210 to donate to a charity of their choice. The scheme has been a great success with our Employee’s of the Month donating £2730.00 to 13 different charities.

Employee of the Month in 2011
We blogged in December that Alltruck employee Sue has been selected as an Area Manager for the London Olympics . So, we’ll be using our blog to follow Sue’s progress in this role throughout her Olympics adventure; getting behind the scenes information and opinions. In this blog Sue gives us the lowdown on her first day of training to be an Olympics Area Manager, which took place on Friday 19th January… “Day 1 of training was a full day session held at London City Halls. The day started with a video message from none other than Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, welcoming us to the Olympics process. It was great to hear from Boris and it got everyone energised for the day ahead – hopefully we’ll get to meet him in person further down the line! At this session, we found out what specific area we would be reponsible for during the Games – and my designated zone is Hyde Park, where I’ll be managing a team of about 20 volunteers. I was delighted to find out I’ll be based here because there is going to be lots going on in Hyde Park during the Games including a large screen and loads of entertainment, so it should be a fantastic atmospshere. We then began to get into some of the more practical details of what will be required of us as Area Managers over the course of the Games such as managing our teams, co-ordinating with the emergency services and so-on. A lot of what we need to do will be presented to us in a info-pack which we will receive in the next couple of weeks – so I’ll be reading that a fair few times between now and the Olympics!! A big part of our role will be motivating and leading the team of volunteers we will be managing, so a large portion of the day focussed on that. We were lucky enough to hear from Paralympic Gold Medallist Tim Prendergast - who gave us a really motivational talk on the importnace of perserverance and not giving up under adversity. Building on this, we ended the day by taking part in a number of group activities where we shared ideas on how we could best motivate and get the most from our teams in a number of challenging and unusal scenarios. Overall the day was fantastic and has made me even more excited than I already was for my role at the Olympics – roll on July!!” Sue’s next training session is in March – so check back to the blog then to hear more about her Olympic journey. And of course we’ll be following Sue’s progress throughout the summer once the Games begin.
