I’m originally from Leixlip, Co. Kildare currently living in Milltown, Co. Kildare. I started with Bord na Móna just over 3 yrs ago, recently appointed as customer service manager for Bord na Móna’s Fuel and Horticulture businesses. I’m currently in the process of transitioning from my previous role in Bord na Móna’s Financial Shared Services Centre to my new role.
“FSSC have a suggestion box, where members of the team can submit suggestions and concerns. I saw this as an opportunity to get the team and the wider Bord na Móna team involved in the Jersey Day activity. So I submitted by suggestion with the hope of it being approved, once the activity was approved by Ailish O’Donnell, myself (Emer Fee), and Nickie Dignam set about organising the activity. I contacted the charity to discuss next steps and later received the starter pack.”
“Nickie and myself printed off the stickers and posters in preparation for the promotion. We had a few close calls with creating an opening in the collection boxes as we had to manually cut them with a scissors – luckily our digits are still intact!! We set about contacting the wider Bord na Móna group to see if they wished to get involved with the help of Daithi de Roiste. We were delighted with the response from all of Bord na Móna for such a worthy cause!”
On the day an impressive number of Bord na Móna staff took part. Each of my colleagues arrived to work with their relevant team’s jersey on. Nickie and myself saw this as an ideal opportunity to take some staff pictures as you can see in the image above. There was great fun as we went about visiting each of the departments in the Newbridge facility taking photos and putting them on the Bord na Móna Intranet. We also reached out to the wider Bord na Móna group to take photos and email them to us – we got many sent back to us.
Overall, the day itself was a huge success – and Bord na Móna raised. Thanks to all staff who took part!
