Congratulations To Our Mole Valey Farmers Employee Of The Year Winners.

Employee of the year winners - Nigel, Grant and Josie

Our Employee of the Year Awards recognise dedication and hard work of our staff.

Congratulations to Nigel Cockwill who won our recent Employee of the Year Awards


Feedback from staff across the Mole Valley Farmers family of companies has helped Nigel Cockwill, the group’s Timber and Silage Specialist, to be voted Employee of the Year 2015.  This is no mean feat, as the company has 2100 employees across 10 Mole Valley Farmers branches in the South West, 38 Mole Country Stores in the East and North, and a number of manufacturing sites across England and Scotland.

Each month staff are invited to nominate colleagues for Employee of The Month, via the company’s intranet.  At the end of the year these winners are entered into the Employee of the Year competition.  Nigel was selected from the 30 monthly finalists, while Grant Little, Show and Events Coordinator, based at Mole Valley Farmers’ Head Office, South Molton and Josie Rainbird, Farm Sales Coordinator from Mole Country Stores, Isle of Wight were worthy runner ups.

The winners were selected from a judging panel made up of Keith Ockenden, Commercial Director, Andrew Chapple, Finance & Operations Director and Jim Gillham, Head of Retail Sales & Operations.  The Awards were presented at a ceremony held at The Hartnoll Hotel, Tiverton.

Rose Cockerill, Head of Human Resources said:

“It was tough to select just one Employee of The Year from the many enthusiastic nominations, but the panel felt that Nigel had worked tirelessly and endlessly in order to deliver the best levels of service to our customers, so well done! “

This Award is just one of the mechanisms used by the Mole Valley Farmers group to recognise and reward great staff performance.  This in turn, has recently helped the company to achieve its Investors in People Award once again, 15 years after it was first secured. 

The company attributes its overall success to teams of people working hard to deliver its objectives, and putting excellent customer care at the heart of the business.  This provides the foundations for great staff satisfaction, which in turn enhances a company’s reputation and helps it to stand out amongst its competitors.
