It is with great sadness that we share with you the news that our respected and hardworking colleague, Paul Holmes died after losing his battle with cancer last week.
Paul worked in our Electrical and Building department for 15 years and today we celebrated his life at a moving funeral service.
He will be dearly missed by all of us at Chequers and our thoughts are with his family, and his wife Theresa at this difficult time.
Rest in Peace Paul
A big congratulations is in order for Lester Ward, who is November’s Employee of the Month!
The handyman is part of Renovo’s Electrical and Building division praised by scheme managers for his excellent work at Esther Randall Court.
Lester’s relationship with the One Housing Group’s Extra Care Team and the residents has been fantastic. He has adapted his working style to suit the needs of the vulnerable residents he serves.
The Extra Care Manager at the site said, “he’s friendly approachable, helpful and always willing to find a solution to a problem. What’s more important to us at Esther Randall Court is the impact he’s had on the Customer’s lives thus far. Those who are able can tell him what needs to be done and the service is impeccable.”
Well done Lester, you deserve it!
October was a good month for us, with both Chequers and Renovo members of staff being recognised for their great work!
Renovo’s Alex Sanchez and Chequers’ Bogdan Soare were awarded Employee of the Month awards for going above and beyond expectations.
Alex, a cleaning operative at a One Housing scheme in Tottenham, was nominated by the General Manager of the site, Carol Pusey for his professional response to an emergency. A fault in the drainage system meant rainwater was leaking through the ceiling, Alex responded well, placing buckets, mopping up pools that had formed, and even stopped the leaks.
Bogdan Soare is a team leader in our commercial department specialising in deep cleans. He proved an invaluable member of the team as we worked hard to prepare Boxpark Croydon for its grand opening last month. He and his team worked tirelessly in making sure Boxpark was spotless in time for the two-day music festival which launched the exciting venue.
Well done and keep up the good work guys!
Alex Sanchez with Carol Pusey
