Breda McElroy from Athlone, was among 100 workers honoured for their dedication in the 2015 GEM Awards, (Going the Extra Mile ), presented late last week by ISS, a major provider of outsourced business services.
Breda works as a cleaning operative for ISS in various Athlone-based sites including two Paddy Power shops and Russell Brennan Keane. She works alongside her husband Sean, a retired army man and according to management, they make a great team. Breda is described as bubbly, outgoing, and a friend to all she meets. She is reliable, dependable, and a great worker with a fantastic work ethic. She never refuses to cover for anyone and never complains, even if she is called at short notice or she has to travel outside Athlone. Breda is described by management as an asset to any team and someone who always goes the extra mile for ISS.
GEM Awards recognise the valuable contribution of employees involved in business supports such as cleaning, catering, security, monitoring and evaluation, pest control, and property services.
