An Anchor Hanover supply buyer has been honoured for going above and beyond to acquire PPE during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rashid Bahadur, 37, (pictured) received an Anchor Hanover colleague award for ensuring staff were kept safe by managing PPE stocks during the height of the pandemic.
Alan Forbes-Wake, Senior Category Manager at Anchor Hanover, said: “Rashid showed incredible commitment to ensuring we had PPE in the right places at the right time. When faced with a serious challenge, he rolled his sleeves up, got on with what needed doing and took ownership of dealing with the problem successfully.
“In tackling PPE, Rashid has demonstrated the core values of Anchor Hanover, he has been accountable, respectful, courageous and honest.”
Rashid worked closely with PPE suppliers to ensure that Anchor Hanover had, and continues to have, a full stock of PPE. He also assisted with the Anchor Hanover’s internal distribution system and liaised closely with all parties to ensure that PPE supplies were directed to where they were needed.
Rashid said: “It was a lovely surprise and really nice to be recognised but even better is knowing that our colleagues on the frontline don’t have to worry about having what they need to keep them safe.
“It’s been challenging at times, I’ve felt that we as a team have done really well making sure everyone has what they need, that to me is the most important thing.”
