Congratulations to our January 2023 MVP Award winner, Hellen.
Here’s why our staff nominated Hellen as this month’s winner:
"Hellen is very hardworking and is always willing to help others"
"She's always on top of things and manages to juggle her daily tasks so well, she is polite and ready to help at any point. She is the rock in the middle of the crisis, and she does this with a smile."
Sister Bernie, Mildmay's Chaplain, says, "We agree with every positive word written about you to acknowledge how you contribute to life here at Mildmay - always going that extra mile."
Well done to Shalma as well, a close second!
Hellen's role is Team leader nursing and discharge coordinator.
Mildmay's monthly MVP Awards were devised by one of our physiotherapists, Josh Pedro, who recognised that, in addition to the annual staff awards by our Trustees, our resilient, dedicated and hard-working staff deserved a fun way to support each other and recognise excellence in their colleagues.
This award aims to recognise the amazing things that Mildmay staff do daily, which may otherwise fly under the radar. By bringing this to the forefront, we can impart regular goodwill and warm, fuzzy feelings into the workplace and give our staff the appreciation they deserve!
The Mildmay MVP Award is a monthly, ‘people’s vote’ style staff awards system. Candidates are nominated by and voted for by staff. No hierarchy!
Each month, we ask for nominations for who our staff think has been the Mildmay MVP. You can nominate any member of staff (clinical, non-clinical, senior management, catering, finance, facilities etc.) & this can be for anything big (saving someone’s life) or small (being really smiley every day).
Once the nominations are in, we can all vote for the winner in an online poll. Everyone sees the nominations, so even if they don’t ‘win’, hopefully, feels nice to be recognised publicly.

On social media and chat forums, MVP means "Most Valuable Player." In this context, the MVP is the player in a sports team whose individual performance is considered the most significant. MVPs can be chosen for their performance throughout a season or in a particular competition or game.
