At Ashfield we have some truly outstanding colleagues working hard every day across the Division. Every year, we are proud to celebrate the very best of our people through our Employee of the Year awards.
A note from Chris Corbin, CEO of Ashfield
“2016 has been a fantastic year for Ashfield – we’ve continued to grow as a business including 2 new acquisitions and employees across the business have excelled in living our values and continuing to deliver high quality services to our clients.
I’m delighted to have recognised 2 Divisional employees as our Employee of the Year winners for all of their hard works and contributions to Ashfield.
In second place, Lizzie Craig has had a phenomenal year and has developed so much as an individual in the last year – she has delivered some fantastic marketing materials including all of our Ashfield Way campaign. Lizzie always has a smile on her face and truly is a fantastic colleague to work with.
In first place, I was absolutely thrilled to be able to award, Lisa Wiggins, my long-standing PA. Lisa joined the company 15 years ago and it was quite simply one of the best decisions myself and Sam ever made to hire Lisa. She is just brilliant all round – nothing is ever too much trouble and not only does she works with me but she supports with every aspect of the organisation. Lisa’s energy and approach to work makes her a joy to work with.
Congratulations to both Lisa and Lizzie and here’s to another outstanding year at Ashfield in 2017. ”
Lisa Wiggins, Assistant to the CEO
“I am extremely honoured to have been awarded Employee of the Year, and so grateful to be recognised. I work with such an energetic, fun, hard-working team and have been surrounded by brilliant and clever people since starting at Ashfield in 2001 – without any of these colleagues the opportunities that I’ve been given would not have been possible.
Thank you to everyone at Ashfield, but especially Chris & Sam who have given me more than just a job”.
Lizzie Craig, Divisional Marketing & Communications Executive
“I am completely overwhelmed but thrilled to be recognised as second place divisional employee of the year. I’m extremely proud of what I have achieved this year but I wouldn’t have been able to achieve half of it without the support, encouragement and love from my fab Marketing team.
I joined the company when I was only 19 years old and have seen it grow and flourish so much in the nearly seven years I have worked here – it’s a very exciting place to be right now. Here’s to Ashfield and even more successful 2017”.
Commercial UK Winners
A note from Colin Watson, Managing Director of Ashfield Commercial and Clinical UK
“In 2016, there have been some outstanding contributions by individuals and teams within the UK Business and it was fantastic to be able to recognise these achievements with our three Employee of the Year winners.
In third place we have James Harrison of our recruitment department, over the last twelve months he has shown impressive levels of partnership by assisting with client demands at short notice and supporting the UK business. Josh Morris, who won second place, has demonstrated energy by understanding the needs of the business and ingenuity by often pre-empting what is needed for both our clients and other departments.
In a very well-deserved first place we have Mark Tunnicliff, who is a key member of our business development team. Nothing is ever too much for Mark, and he is actively sought out by various departments throughout the business for his high quality of work and undoubtable financial and analytical expertise.
Congratulations to you all, and here’s to a wonderful and successful 2017.”
Mark Tunnicliff, Business Development Executive
“I think everyone on the night could see how surprised I was to hear my name being called and it has made me immensely proud to receive votes from so many colleagues.
It’s been a crazy year with so much happening in Business Development and the wider business but it has meant that I get to work with a wide array of colleagues across multiple departments.
Having worked with Ashfield since my university placement back in 2005 I have seen plenty of changes across the years but one thing that always remains constant is the enthusiasm and drive of the people here. It’s great to work for such a forward thinking company and long may it continue”.
Josh Morris, Business Intelligence Assistant
“It was a massive surprise to receive this award and I am exceptionally grateful to be recognised by the business.
It has been an extremely rewarding year, not only for myself but the whole Business Intelligence team, and none of this would be possible without the support and relationships we have with people all over Ashfield. It is a pleasure to work for the company and look forward to many more years to come”.
James Harrison, Recruitment Executive
“It is an honour to be awarded with recognition for all of the hard work that goes into the recruitment for Ashfield.
It is a result of the dedication, passion and endurance of myself and all my colleagues within the recruitment department that contribute to the work ethic we all share, as well as the ongoing support from the project managers and nurse managers that I have the pleasure to recruit for.
This by far is the best job that I have ever had the privilege to hold, and I am excited to see where my own personal and professional development will lead in an amazing company such as Ashfield Healthcare”.
Congratulations to all of our winners!
