Wallis Palmer, Pharmacy Assistant at Well Pharmacy in Bottesford, was awarded a gold STAR for going above and beyond in her role.
Gold STAR’s are internal awards that recognise Well employees when they have displayed actions or behaviours consistent with the company’s values. Employees can nominate colleagues that they think deserve recognition, with winners receiving recognition to celebrate their hard work and effort.
Wallis exhibited many of Well’s core values when she stepped up to support the relief pharmacists, taking on far more work than was required of her.
Wallis showed passion and dedication to both the store and the business on more than one occasion. She led on the recruitment of new colleagues, trained new team members, stepped in when no-one else could and even made home deliveries outside of working hours. These actions showed her devotion to the customers and the local community.
Pritesh Patel, Regional Development Manager said:
“Wallis has been the main constant in the branch, assumed responsibility where possible, foregone taking any of her holidays and covered all of the Saturdays where there was no one else to do the hours. Wallis never complained at any stage and did everything in an enthusiastic and positive manner because she wanted to deliver for the customers in the community and not let them down”.
