Driver Hire Grimsby & Scunthorpe announce their Driver of the Year 2018

Michael and Janye Anne O’Flynn, Driver Hire Grimsby & Scunthorpe franchisees, were pleased to present Ian Gordon with their first annual ‘Driver of the Year Award’ on Friday 4 May 2018.

Ian has been working for Driver Hire Grimsby & Scunthorpe for a year and has excelled in meeting all aspects of the award’s demanding criteria. The criteria were set by both Michael and Jayne and purposely designed so that their drivers had to deliver high performance in ten different categories, the winner being the driver with the most accumulated points.

Ian received a cheque for £500, an inscribed plaque and a voucher for two for dinner, bed and breakfast in an executive room at the Ashbourne Hotel, North Killingholme.

Jayne Anne said, “it was wonderful to receive such positive feedback from our clients about Ian. We are very proud of him and the service he has given to Driver Hire and our clients.”

Both Jayne and Michael said that one of the first things that they noticed when they bought the Driver Hire Scunthorpe & Grimsby franchise in February 2016, was the quality of their drivers and in the latest candidate survey, 94% said they were proud to work for Driver Hire.

They added, “many drivers come back and continue to work with us for several years, which is a great compliment to Driver Hire Grimsby & Scunthorpe and the quality of staff we provide to our clients. It is also the reason why we introduced this annual award to recognise the excellence in our workforce”.
