O’Brien Celebrates the 2019 Winners of our ‘Employee Outstanding Achievement Award’!

O’Brien values the skills, experience and dedication of our site teams.

In recognition of this, we have for many years run the ‘Outstanding Achievement Award’.  The award goes to a member of one of our site teams each quarter to coincide with our quarterly newsletter.

Project Managers nominate the operative that they think has gone above and beyond for the previous quarter and the candidate with the most recommendations wins the award.  In recognition of their outstanding contribution, the winner gets a £500 cheque and a certificate in recognition of their hard work.
