Recognising our staff at this special time…

Company awards are more than just an accolade at FBM Holidays

Here at FBM Holidays, we traditionally like to recognise the contribution of our staff over the course of the year, by arranging a small award ceremony. This year, staff in the firm were asked to vote and participate to find out who the winners of two award categories would be. The award titles were:

Outstanding Achievement & Unsung Hero
Whilst we are a small and tight-knit team, we find that our staff punches well above their weight, so competition for both awards is always fiercely contested and it’s only right and fair that all of our staff have their say.

Unsung Hero

Mary O’Connor

Mary is a fantastic all-round member of the team, and a true trooper in every way. The title of unsung hero couldn’t be more apt for Mary, without whom we feel the building here may collapse without her, such is the binding quality she brings to every department in the company. Originally a company PA, Mary is so much more to the firm as a whole; she understands all the processes and parts to the business, she is very often a key liaison for FBM Holidays and definitely the go to person for many another team member here. Mary, amongst other key duties, as part of the marketing team, and vital assistant to the New Business department, also plays a majority role in producing our property brochure every year and we feel this award is justly and roundly deserved this year. Well done Mary, and thank you.

Outstanding Achievement

Karen Smith & Hazel Garrod

Essentially, our New Business team, all counted votes received for this award ended in a draw between the two managers that head up this department. After a thrilling and record-breaking year, where our property portfolio grew by over 20%, with a 60% YOY increase in instructions, it’s poetic justice that both Karen and Hazel receive this award. A key connection to how well the FBM Holidays did in 2017 overall, we could not do what we have done without them. Thank you both and well done. Your efforts as always are amazing.

Company partner, Tim Brace said “This year on the whole has been a good one; we’ve had to combat change and new processes and everyone has had to pull together. We’ve seen staff come and go, and we’ve all had to adapt, but we have pulled through, and pulled it out of the bag. Both awards, really do go to those members of staff that have typified the hard work we have put in this year, but take nothing away from everyone else, the effort from everyone has been outstanding.”
