News Item: GoHire Wins Twice at the Hire Awards of Excellence 2020

The team at GoHire (Hull) are pleased to announce that Rob Thompson, their Hire Manager was the winner of not just one, but two trophies at the Hire Awards of Excellence last month.

As with all events this year, the Hire Awards took place online, so the team from GoHire went along to a local bar and cafe in Hull to watch the event remotely.

"We were absolutely thrilled when Rob was first of all announced as the Hire Manager of the Year", says Sally Wray, GoHire's managing director. "The judges said the strength of this category really challenged them with the array of talent on show and the shortlist demonstrated good leadership from all of the Hire Managers who were nominated".

The Hire Manager of the Year award recognises the attributes of the individuals who are responsible for running a depot operation with profit responsibility, staff management, ensuring customer satisfaction and dealing with all of the problems.

The judges said Rob is hands-on and has personally taken on-board everything an independent tool hire business needs from a hire manager. As the winner he is versatile, forward-thinking and focuses on what the customer needs - resulting in outstanding customer service!

Sally went on to say: "Rob has worked in the tool hire for 30 years and we are so pleased we nominated him as it confirms how the team feels about Rob, his work ethic and devotion to excellent customer service. Well done Rob, you’ve done us all proud!"

The second trophy for Hire Achiever of the Year is the pinnacle of individual achievement in the hire industry. It is the one award that truly demonstrates the importance of recruiting, nurturing and training the right people. The Hire Awards of Excellence highlight great people and encourage their long-term commitment.

Rob went on to be crowned Hire Achiever of the Year. The judges said all nominees deserved to win but Rob had taken a leap and seized an opportunity with a small hire company and shown an amazing range of competency levels and commitment. Rob is an outstanding achiever!

Rob thanked the GoHire team and his wife in particular who have supported him on this career journey.
