Last Wednesday saw the very first presentation of Christies Care’s ‘Extra Mile’ award.

This will be awarded every 3 months and is our way of formally recognising those employees who go the ‘extra mile’ in their working day.

It is open to all our office staff, advisors and housekeeping staff. Staff members were asked to nominate who they felt most deserved this award, stating how their colleague had gone above and beyond in their role.

Decided by the Directors, the inaugural Extra Mile Award was presented to Assistant Co-ordinator, Rici Short.

Rici received a certificate, £25 in high street vouchers and, more importantly, the acclaim of his colleagues.
