History of the Golden Dolly
The golden dolly is a recognition of consistent performance from workers who ‘fly under the radar’ potentially missing out on nominations for worker and supervisor of the month.
The idea was inspired by a former Egans employee “Barry Byrne” an actor at heart, and from light hearted conversations and jokes with Ben Hart the golden dolly became the removal industry equivalent of the golden globes.
It was however, brought to life and given its existing value and meaning by Egans management, and is treated as a highly regarded reward for staff excellence.
This year was very tight with a lot of nominees
- Tim Delves
- Anthony Tomkins
- Ayush Bajaj
- Joseph Hayden
- Joseph Martin
The first round of voting was a dead heat, with a secondary round of voting also producing no clear winner.
In the end it came down to a decision from management with Joseph Martin eventually taking the award for 2015.
