It’s International Women’s Day 2018 and we could not think of a more appropriate day to highlight some of the key achievements of the women who work here at Analox.
International Women's Day is annually held on March 8 to celebrate women's achievements throughout history and across the world. It is also known as the United Nations (UN) Day for Women's Rights and International Peace.
We have compiled a list of the key achievements of Analox women below.
Emma Harbottle - One of Teesside’s ‘most outstanding business people’
The readers of Tees Business were asked to vote for their favourite business leaders, and Emma, along with 24 other businesspeople from the area, was named as one of the ‘most outstanding business people in Teesside’.
Emma initially came to the operations department of Analox to fund a gap year after A Levels, however, she enjoyed the work so much she decided to stay, becoming Operations Director in 2011.
Lauren Bennett - Graduate Champion of the Year (Hambleton Business Awards)
The Hambleton Business Awards is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the great business achievements of businesses in Hambleton.
There were nine categories in the 2016 Business Awards, including ‘Community Contribution’, ‘Engaging Young Minds’, ‘Hambleton Champion’, and ‘Apprentice Champion’.
Lauren was nominated by Michelle Wilson, Marketing Manager, for ‘Graduate Champion’, as it is given to a graduate that has shown the greatest development in their role since joining the business and has contributed most to the business.
3. Polly Fearnehough - Apprentice of the Year at 3aaa Middlesbrough Academy
Polly from our IT department won Apprentice of the Year at 3aaa Middlesbrough Academy. The academy delivers Level 3 and 4 apprenticeships for IT and digital marketing and Level 3 in web and social media.
She was identified as the top candidate in the academy for Apprentice of the Year, as her work has been consistently of a high standard. Polly has even had her academy work showcased to other apprentices as a model of good practice.
Chris Martin, IT Controller, said: “It was great to find out that Polly had won Apprentice of the Year. Since she started at Analox she has been a pleasure to work with and provided a huge amount of assistance in the IT department. On behalf of everyone at Analox I would like to say congratulations and well done Polly.”
4. Theresa Bryden Revving up donations for kids at Christmas
Just last year, US-based Sales Support Clerk Theresa Bryden took part in a charity bike run to raise funds for children’s gifts at Christmas Time. All funds and toys donated at the event were given to local families, children and the Roque Centre, which provides rehabilitative services to those struggling with addiction.
With all these successful colleagues we very much support women in business and encourage more females to enter into a manufacturing environment. Analox have previously hosted, and welcomes, anyone, especially women who wishes to find out more about working in a manufacturing company and to experience all the different job roles available from HR and accounts to engineering and production to get in contact.
