It was all glitz, bubbly and black ties on Friday 2nd February as we paid homage to some of our employees from Solihull who have gone above and beyond over the past year when we hosted the annual Solihull Excellence Awards.
With over 800 nominations coming in from across the site, it was a hard process to find a shortlist of finalists. However, after much deliberation, 22 employees and teams were selected, receiving an invitation to Hogaths Hotel in Solihull, for a glitzy ceremony and three course dinner, complete with the awards presentation.
Nominations for those who have gone that extra mile were submitted across eight categories - Safety, Quality, Delivery, Cost, People, Environment, Launch and the coveted Operations Directors Award. Nigel Blenkinsop, Solihull Operations Director commented; “The finalists represent the very best of Jaguar Land Rover’s flagship manufacturing plant. Thanks to their spirit and determination, they make Solihull a better place.”
Final Fit and Trim Group Leader won the Operations Directors Award on the evening. He commented, “Events like this are extremely important, you feel really appreciated for doing a good job.” A huge well done to all of our nominees, runners up and winners.
