Visions and Values Winners
This Quarters Winners for the PBS Vison and Values Nominations are:
Our surveying team already recognise the importance of calling in any dangerous ‘I-Hazards’ found on site to the network owner, then waiting on site until the hazard has been dealt with. But Mike’s reliable approach to this important behaviour was tested when he had already worked late on a Friday to help a colleague finish a work pack then upon hammer testing his final pole for the week, Mike discovered an I-Hazard. Despite knowing that this would eat indefinitely into his weekend, Mike called in the I-Hazard and waited patiently for our client to arrive with no complaints, further highlighting how we value Reliability.
Simon recently took part in a review of his work to ensure that all required information and documents were being submitted, so that his overall quality of work matched his consistently excellent productivity. Simon responded to this in a very Professional way and his work since has been of the highest standard. The high quality work that is being produced enables the staff in the PBS office to process it at a substantially faster rate, the outcome of which is that the quantity and quality of our final product is increased significantly, leading to improved team morale throughout the company.
Chris identified a gap in our scaffold sub-contractor resource around the Aberystwyth area, and had tried to engage with many of the well-known companies here but they had all been incompatible with our IT requirements and strict pricing structure. Chris then came up with an Innovative way to find smaller scaffolders by contacting rental companies in the area to see who had been hiring scaffolding materials lately. This resulted in Chris finding a suitable company which can provide the services we require, and he is currently in the process of evaluating their sub-contractor application forms to get them on board.
Matt has recently joined PBS and has settled well into the team. During his first few months he has worked collaboratively with numerous members of PBS staff, ensuring that he has full understanding of different work specifications for different clients. His collaborative approach means that he is now confident in all aspects of the role. He was thrown into the deep end and met urgent deadlines without compromise to the quality of his work. Within a short space of time he has become a vital part of the PBS team and this led to multiple well-deserved nominations for Matt for this quarter’s Collaborative award.
Concerns were raised internally following customer feedback on a Construction Support job, so Stuart went directly to the job with the framework contractor despite it not being his usual remit, and addressed all the customer’s issues comprehensively, and to the satisfaction of our client. He then proactively created and issued a simple toolbox talk to ensure that the situation wouldn’t reoccur. Stuart once again proved his reputation for being Supportive and vastly knowledgeable in this industry.
