Local Weston-super-Mare woman Rachel Farrell’s eye for business has earned her the title ‘Employee of the Month – September 2016’ at Praesepe Group – a national leisure services group that employs 1,600 people throughout the UK.
Rachel is the venue manager at Praesepe’s Family Entertainment Centre in Weston-super-Mare, where she has worked for the past six years.
She earned the award after helping to set up a new venue in Largs, Scotland, 417 miles away, training a new team and ordering equipment for the venue.
Praesepe’s Operations Manager, Simon Gudgeon, who nominated Rachel, said: “Rachel is an invaluable employee and her great attitude and hard work deserves to be recognised. She’s always willing to help and really went out of her way to make sure our new venue in Largs opened successfully. And after she returned to her normal job in Weston Super Mare, she’s continued to provide telephone support to the team in Largs to make sure everything runs smoothly.”
A surprise ceremony was held last Friday (21st October) where Praesepe Group’s CEO, Nick Harding, presented Rachel with £250 of high street vouchers, a special Employee of the Month badge and a certificate to mark her award.
Nick Harding added: “Rachel truly cares about our company, doing her very best to ensure the work she does is perfect. She is vital to the organisation and we truly value her dedication and effort.”
