In Bala’s speech he said: ‘The Employee of the Year award goes to an individual who exemplifies the council’s core values, behaviours, characteristics and who has contributed exceptionally to the council.

The winner is someone who approaches varied, challenging and complex tasks with a refreshing can do attitude. She uses high levels of emotional intelligence and a sense of humour to navigate often tricky and sensitive issues and is able to quickly get the heart of the matter and suggest an appropriate solution or action. She is hard working, organised and doesn’t make a fuss but gets on with the job. She shows real commitment to the organisation, often going the extra mile and nothing is too much trouble.

Effective team work is key to success in the council and our winner has taken this to heart and exemplifies good team work.’

Louise Evans, a Project Officer from Basildon Council’s Commercial Services department was crowned the winner and commended for exemplifying the council’s values.

Gary Lester said: “For us, our Partnership with Basildon Borough Council goes beyond our basic commitments to providing integrated maintenance services. It’s about demonstrating our support for the wider council by encouraging and rewarding employees that drive continuous improvement in service delivery and genuinely care about their jobs and the communities they serve. Congratulations to the winners and all staff that were nominated.”
