A local Cashino employee who postponed his holiday to help the company in its time of need has been awarded for his commitment by his employer Praesepe, a national leisure services group that employs 1700 people throughout the UK.  

Will MacIver, a Duty Manager for Cashino Leeds, has worked at the company for nearly five years and a nomination from Simon Gudgeon, regional operations manager, led to Will being awarded ‘Employee of the Month – April 2017’.

Will was joined by colleagues in a surprise ceremony last Wednesday, 24th May and Praesepe’s CEO Nick Harding presented a certificate to mark his selfless actions, a special Employee of the Month award and £250 of high street vouchers.

Simon Gudgeon, regional operations manager, said: “Will is always so cheerful and has an unfailing patience – he is the epitome of a brilliant employee. This judgement was only further supported when he postponed his holiday to help the company in their time of need.”

Employee of the month winner Will said: “I was really surprised to receive the award; I didn’t even know I was nominated for it. My manager sent the emails off then deleted them straight away so I had absolutely no idea. I’m so thrilled. I’m hoping to reschedule my holiday for the end of the year.”
