Here at Simply Waste Solutions, we want our staff to feel valued and reward the hard work they do that contributes to our success.
We recently held our 2018 Drivers’ Awards to recognise and reward the hard work that the drivers out on the road are doing for us. The award categories for the evening included:
- Drivers’ driver HGV and non-HGV
- Most legally compliant
- Most fuel efficient
- Most improved
- An overall driver of the year
We believe in rewarding our employees for many reasons; it promotes healthy competition within our drivers, it allows them to feel valued in their role and also aids employee retention, which is imperative for the business to succeed.
Statistics show that driving is a career choice in decline and we want to celebrate the drivers who are leading the way in our operations team. The black-tie event was first held last year to encourage our drivers to be the ‘best’ driver they can be and following the great feedback we received, we’ve turned it into an annual event. For us, the business isn’t as simple as just emptying bins, it’s about being as safe as possible while minimising emissions by driving efficiently, all contributing towards our primary job.
Everyone at Simply Waste would like to congratulate all of the winners and nominated employees, in this year’s driver’s awards. If you think you have what it takes to be one of our drivers and be recognised for your excellence, check out our careers page for our latest vacancies.
