Congratulations to our three QEF catering Team winners of this month’s Employee of the month.
Pictured above are Julie Hepburn with Peter Harding Managing Director, Debbie Swails and Mary Wheeler with Steve Boon CEO of QE Facilities limited.
The winners were nominated though their work with “project choice”
Project choice supports young adults with learning disabilities/difficulties and or Autism. It is a programme that helps young adults gain work experience and improve employability and independence skills. The scheme is run across the NHS, public and private sector organisations.
Julie, Debbie and Mary have worked brilliantly with each student making sure their needs are met with each task they have been given. The students have been given the best opportunity to gain experience within an NHS environment.
All three of our winners have gone above and beyond to support and encourage the students to become a productive member or their department. All the students have been given the chance to know how it feels to work and have been taught the importance of each job in the NHS. The staff encourages students to interact with other colleagues or service users and teach them the skills they need to be able to move onto paid employment in the future.
The students understand that there are barriers to face and with the help and support from these departments they have overcome a lot of these. Because of the mentor’s patience, guidance and enthusiasm to make this work, these students now see their future in a different way.
A massive congratulations to Julie, Debbie and Mary from all your friends and colleagues at QE Facilities Limited.
