Kansas City to Sheffield and Xuzhou:
around the world to thank our Stars!
Internally nicknamed the
“Logie, Baftas, or Golden
Globe (depending on your
country)” the Bradken Award
is the highest and most
esteemed award. The winner
is always an outstanding
example of what is it to be a
Bradken employee and Proud
to Belong.
What makes the Bradken
Recognition Awards different
to most companies is that
we are recognising the
contributions of staff who
uphold and live by Bradken’s
core values. They are not
awarded for sales turnover,
tonnes dressed or new
projects won. We are proud to
be focused on the behaviours
and values that set us apart
from our peers.
“Overwhelmingly positive
on a number of levels” sums
up the inaugural Bradken
Recognition Awards event held
in Kansas City. It was the US’s
first opportunity as Bradken
to promote and recognise
the outstanding efforts
of their staff.
At Cutlers Hall in Sheffield
England, the Recognition
Awards bore similar fruit in
developing closer relationships
between the various Bradken
sites. The event successfully
brought them together,
deepening the understanding
and respect for each site and
their employees.
For most attending the event,
it was the first opportunity to
visit a Bradken site outside
their own, and so it provided
a great opportunity to develop
valuable working relationships
and foster knowledge sharing
between sites.
Across the globe to Xuzhou in
China, the feedback from the
winners and nominees of the
various award categories was
just as positive. This is the 3rd
year the Recognition Awards
have been held in Xuzhou and
the calibre of nominees was
exceptionally high.
Nominees, including the
eventual category winners,
were delighted to be
recognised as standout
employees by their colleagues
and thanked publicly for
their efforts. They also
appreciated the commitment
to the Recognition Awards
program by Bradken CEO
Brian Hodges and Human
Resources General Manager
Wayne Herbertson, who
attended the presentations
and conveyed their personal
congratulations to the
recipients.
The pride exhibited by winners,
nominees, their mates, their
sites and their families was
inspiring and motivating.
The Bradken Recognition Awards recently acknowledged the contributions
of a number of outstanding employees in the US, the UK and China.
