Local Burnham-on-Sea man Dan Balchin’s hard work and commitment earned him the title ‘Employee of the Month – March 2016’ at Praesepe Group, a national leisure services group that employs 1,600 people throughout the UK.
Dan is an engineer at Praesepe Group’s Funshine Family Entertainment Centre in Burnham-on-Sea, where he has worked for the last nine years.
General Manager of the centre, Pauline Williams, said: “Dan thoroughly deserves this award. A great example of his hard work is the help he has given to prepare the Family Entertainment Centre venues for the summer, as well as our new venues, making sure everything is running smoothly.
“He is a great member of staff who makes sure that his work is always up to high standards. He is, without doubt, an example to all his colleagues.”
Dan was joined by colleagues in a surprise ceremony this week, where Praesepe Group’s CEO, Nick Harding and Head of HR, Jeni McLaren presented him with £250 of high street vouchers, a special Employee of the Month badge and certificate to mark his award.
Nick Harding commented: “Dan really goes above and beyond and always ensures the work he does is impeccable. He is a real asset to the company.”
