Wexford pest control technician Colin honoured for going the extra mile
Colin Keeling, from Wexford Town, was among 150 people working in private and public sector businesses and facilities across Ireland who were honoured recently in the GEM Awards, (Going the Extra Mile), which were presented by ISS Ireland, a major provider of outsourced site services.
Colin, who works as a Pest Control Technician in Amgen has been with ISS for around three years.
His role as Pest technician is to deliver a pest service to large key account customers with the Amgen contract being the largest and most demanding.
Colin works in an extremely professional manner and is always available to respond to all emergencies that require his attention. Nothing is too much trouble for Colin and he can always be relied upon as a safe pair of hands when issues arise.
The Irish GEM Awards were presented by Richie Hogan, the popular Kilkenny Hurling GAA Star, who said he was delighted to participate in the event which recognises the hard work and dedication of frontline staff in the services sector.
The ISS Ireland GEM Awards recognise the valuable contribution of employees, both Irish and non-Irish nationals, who together bring a wealth of experience and energy to the services sector. ISS Ireland employees are involved in out-sourced operational and support services, such as catering, cleaning, security, maintenance, landscaping, post-room, reception, property management and pest control. The people who work in essential support services, like cleaning, catering, security and maintenance can go unnoticed in the workplace, but, without them, our clients' premises including hospitals, universities and businesses simply could not function, ISS managing director Eric Doyle said at the 6th annual awards ceremony at the Castleknock Hotel and Country Club in Dublin.
