Lucas holds inaugural quarterly awards
Lucas last night held its first quarterly awards aimed at maintaining the highest levels of safety, quality, innovation and lean working throughout the company.
Senior construction manager Justas Januscevicius won the top “Pushing Boundaries” award. Justas was praised for going above and beyond the call of duty, for always being available to clients, for bringing new ideas to the table and putting feedback into action.
Joinery manager Neil Staton won the innovation and lean award, the safety manager award went to Bart Gac and Atanas Ilchev won the quality manager award.
The operatives’ safety awards were won by George Wright from the fit out division of Lucas and Nikola Veselov was presented with the safety award from the finishing side of Lucas.
The quarterly awards are the highlight of The Lucas Way, a new initiative bringing together the programmes launched by the company in recent years that ensure performance on all measures is top rated right across the business.
A new poster and online campaign gives direction and inspiration to all site operatives and headquarters staff based on a pie chart which has Lucas’s “Lean Culture” at its heart. The five segments of the pie highlight health, safety and wellbeing; innovation and technology; quality and excellence; sustainability and environment; and corporate and social responsibility.
Nominations for the awards are made by members of the Lucas team through the Lucas Team app and a scoring matrix measures individual efforts against Lucas’s corporate values.
The awards were held in central London at the Court House Hotel, the former Great Marlborough Street Magistrate’s Court where the likes of Oscar Wilde, John Lennon and Mick Jagger once put in appearances. It also houses one of London’s largest private cinemas where the awards ceremony took place.
