A dedicated lab technician from the National Milk Laboratories was treated to lunch with her colleagues when she won a competition organised by MNA Recruitment.
Caroline Brown, who works at the testing centre at Calibre Industrial Park won pizzas for 10 colleagues.
She also won a red letter day experience when she was named employee of the week in the draw.
Caroline scooped the prize after being picked from a host of entrants.
The competition was featured on radio station Signal 107 with MNA Recruitment.
Nominated for positive attitude
She was nominated by colleague Nicola Beards for her hard work and positive attitude.
Nicola said: “Caroline is thoroughly deserving of the award and she is a fantastic person to work with.
“She works so hard in every task that is given to her, especially over the Christmas period when she worked extra days to keep the laboratory afloat. As her team leader I’d be lost without her.”
Caroline was presented with her winnings on Friday, along with the food delivery for her colleagues.
She said: “I’m so pleased to have won and I am very shocked. I couldn’t believe when I found out.
“I want to thank Nicola for nominating me. We have worked together for two years.”
The search for the employee of the week was staged as part of a promotional campaign for MNA Recruitment, who wanted to brighten the mood among the local workforce during the traditionally gloomy January period.
Promoting recruitment services
At a time of the year when many recruiters and candidates are looking at their options, MNA Recruitment wanted to honour a popular employee as part of their promotion of their services.
Director of recruitment services Lee Smith said: “MNA Recruitment was delighted to celebrate the achievements of Caroline and her colleagues at the National Milk Laboratories.
“High quality is central to the range of solutions we offer to meet different business needs so having Caroline as a winner because of her hard work was the perfect match.”
Signal 107 DJ Dicky Dodd surprised Caroline, who lives in Brownhills, by calling her at work to let her know she had won.
She said: “Caroline is a worthy winner. It’s great that I get to come out in the community and meet people who go the extra mile.
“Caroline always has a smile on her face and I would like to wish her a very well done.”
