UK Screen Announce August Shining Star

1 September 2014

Jessica Redman, Front of House at Halo Post has been announced as UK Screen’s August Shining Star.


Jess is a pro-active, consistent, and enthusiastic member of the Halo team. She has proven to be a fantastic addition to the Front of House team at Halo Post and has taken the role of Receptionist at Halo Post and made it her own.  

She accepted a change to the system at Halo wherein we now issue swipe cards for access to both clients and staff. With a huge number of people coming through the door on a daily basis Jess ensures that she is pro-active in getting each and every person to their destination as quickly as possible. She has spent a lot of time looking into the system and came to a decision that the system could work faster (e.g. assigning cards to rooms instead of names etc.) with some improvements and that by people signing for their cards it is an easier way to track them so that they are being returned as quickly as possible. By taking this approach and looking into this Jess has managed to save time for both her and for clients waiting for an issued card and made the system seamless in the way it is now handled. This is just an example of how Jess looks at her role and seeks to continuously improve upon it. 

On hearing on Jessica’s win of the Shining Star award Jonny Bilsby, Head of Client Services at Halo Post said "Having Jess win August’s Shining Star award is a huge achievement and I speak on behalf of the whole of Halo in congratulating her. Jess was over the moon and this is a huge testament to her success as Front of House at Halo. When told of her win she simply looked pleased and let out what I can only describe as a high pitched squeal...

 Shining Stars is an exciting recognition scheme sponsored by Allan Chapman & James Insurance Brokers. it is designed to help motivate and reward employees in non-'creative' positions within UK Screen member companies - often fulfilling invaluable but unsung roles. Companies simply nominate a member of staff whose performance has been over and above the call of duty. Each month a new Shining Star is chosen and at the end of the year all winners will celebrate in style at a celebratory meal with our sponsors. Winners receive a bottle of champagne and a certificate and a have a profile in UK Spotlight. 

So if you know someone who fits the bill, please contact Angela to receive an application form.
