Worker of the Year collects the keys to prize

dickiesUK Worker of the Year 2014 winner, Chris Teale, a heating and plumbing engineer from Barnet, has collected the keys for his winning prize – a new Suzuki S-Cross car.

Chris, who was won UK Worker of the Year 2014 in October at the British Superbike finale at Brands Hatch, attended local Suzuki dealership JEM to pick up his new set of wheels.

Chris said:

“Winning the competition in October ahead of thousands of other worthy applicants is incredible. I’d like to thank Dickies for organising such a fantastic competition, and Suzuki for the prize. I have made many friends during my time in the competition and I look forward to working closer with the organisers this year. The prospect of being a judge in the 2015 as well excites me.”

UK Worker of the Year is a competition run by workwear company, Dickies, to recognise and reward hard work, pride and dedication in the UK workforce. The competition is open to everyone over the age of 17, who work in the UK.

Chris was joined at the car presentation by Maurice Morton, who is Dickies’ sales and marketing director and Suzuki’s head of press and PR, Alun Parry.

Maurice Morton, said:

“We are delighted to have presented Chris with his new car. He was certainly a worthy winner in a tightly contested competition. I am sure Chris will be a fabulous ambassador for UK WOTY throughout 2015 and I hope he continues to champion his industry in the way he has been to date.”

JEM Suzuki (Edgware) dealership principle, Simon Phillipson, said:

“I’m extremely pleased for Chris and delighted he was able to come and collect his S-Cross from JEM. I wish him all the best with his new car.”

Dickies has announced that UK Worker of the Year will be running for a sixth year in 2015, with the competition officially launching in April.
