Bryte Lights Awards for staff recognition

To recognise the incredible efforts our colleagues make at Bryanston, earlier this year we launched the BRYte Lights initiative.

Finalists with Chief Operating Officer Nick Dodd

BRYte Lights is a new, peer-nominated scheme designed to reward support staff at Bryanston and Bryanston Knighton House for an outstanding contribution: a clear example of going the extra mile for the School.

Support staff were invited to nominate a colleague for their contribution, and under no obligation to nominate someone from their own team. A committee, made up of a diverse cross-section of support staff then decided who should be nominated for an award. All nominations were considered on a merit basis.

Moving forwards, there will be a nominations window opened every term.

Johnathan Fell, Human Resources Business Partner at Bryanston, commented: “We asked support staff to nominate their colleagues because we knew that they were best placed to share with us the stories of those they work with that deserve recognition the most for their amazing contributions.”

At the end of last week, we held the inaugural Bryte Lights Dinner at Bryanston Knighton House for finalists. A sensational dinner was followed by an awards ceremony, with the winner for the Autumn term announced as Karen Wiggs, Domestic Assistant in Housekeeping. The awards were compered by Chief Operating Officer Nick Dodd.

Finalists included: Chris Blacker (Assistant Systems Technician), Jodi Twist (School Business Manager), Kris Browne (Woods Estate Worker), Jess Stocks (Groom), Abi Hatrey (Gatehouse Office Supervisor), Cathy Newby (Payroll Administrator), Callie Woodrow (Clinical Lead), Dan Stokes (Deputy Catering Manager) and Sarah Spencer (Admissions Assistant).
