Sinead Corrigan from Newbridge was recently voted Receptionist of the Year at the 2017 Service Excellence Awards in London. Sinead was the only ROI employee to win an award at this year’s event which received over 400 nominations in 34 categories submitted on behalf of Sodexo staff based in Ireland and the UK.
Sinead joined Sodexo in 2010 and is based at Procter & Gamble in Newbridge, where we managed the staff restaurant and several on-site support services that include reception and helpdesk.
Sinead was nominated by her line manager, Paul Carey, who said: “Sinead is literally the heartbeat of our reception. She is passionate about providing 5-star service excellence and combines outstanding front of office and customer service delivery skills with a wonderful personal touch. The reception area for this very safety conscious site is an extremely busy space with a steady stream of contractors and visitors seeking access every day. Sinead manages their safety briefings, along with a busy switchboard, meeting room schedules and travel bookings and yet always has time to help a colleague in need.”
Sinead said: “To be honest, I was very flattered to be nominated in the first place and then to hear I was picked as a finalist, I couldn’t believe it as I knew there was a lot of competition!”
Colleagues organised a presentation at which she also received flowers and chocolates from both Sodexo and P&G. “The feedback from my colleagues and P&G was just amazing,” said Sinead. “I love this job and the fact that no day is ever the same. I work with a great group of people and I love the daily interaction with everyone who passes through the reception.”
