LSH Auto celebrates the ‘Best of the Best’

LSH Auto Best of the Best winners from Mercedes-Benz of Stockport

LSH Auto recognised its top performing colleagues with an unusual twist on the company’s annual ‘Best of the Best’ awards celebrations.

A series of virtual cocktail masterclasses were held in place of an annual awards dinner, due to the Omicron situation at the start of the year.

Ian Williams, Head of Human Resources, said: “It’s really important for us to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of our colleagues. They’ve worked so hard to maintain our high standards and have managed to exceed our annual targets, despite the challenges that the motor industry has been facing.

“When the Plan B restrictions were announced in December, we decided to find an alternative to a typical awards evening. We worked with Virtual Connoisseur to hold a series of digital cocktail making masterclasses and delivered cocktail gift boxes (with options for alcoholic or non-alcoholic ingredients) to all our award winners in advance, along with Just Eat vouchers.

“It was a huge success. More than 80 colleagues were recognised for their achievements across five evenings in January and the feedback has been fantastic.”

The celebrations kicked off with 15 winners from Mercedes-Benz of Stockport, nominated by their managers from the front of house, sales, aftersales, technicians, parts, bodyshop and central services teams.

Chelsea Rowe, Corporate Sales Coordinator, said: “Being a part of the Vans/Corporate team here at LSH Auto means I work with colleagues across both the Stockport and Birmingham sites. This cocktail evening was a great way to meet and spend time with some colleagues who I don’t always see on a day-to-day basis. Winning a Best of the Best award was a total surprise and very much appreciated! We all had a great night, and the cocktail hosts were brilliant. It was a fantastic and extremely fun way to celebrate the success of our teams across the business.”

Mercedes-Benz of Birmingham marked the achievements of 20 winners from a diverse range of departments.

LSH Auto’s Finance Team had 13 winners who came together with seven winners from the Customer Experience Centre for their virtual celebration.

Mercedes-Benz of Whitefield and Mercedes-Benz of Macclesfield celebrated the achievements of 14 winners from hosts, sales and aftersales executives to technicians, paint sprayers and service advisors.

The final ‘Best of the Best’ awards celebration brought together 14 winners from Mercedes-Benz of Solihull and Mercedes-Benz of Tamworth, ranging from apprentice technicians and parts supervisors to warranty and aftersales administrators, sales executives and hosts.

Martyn Webb, Managing Director LSH Auto, said: “These individuals have given an outstanding 2021 performance. They embrace our values of trust, integrity, teamwork, relevance and social responsibility, and have gone above and beyond for their departments, colleagues and our customers.

“As a company we know that our success relies on our colleagues. The ‘Best of the Best’ awards are a fantastic way to celebrate their dedication and commitment over the past 12 months and to look forward together to an exciting year ahead.”

LSH Auto employs more than 600 colleagues and is currently recruiting for talented individuals to join its expanding team. Opportunities are available for a diverse range of careers from technicians, aftersales and sales executives, to parts operatives, customer experience team members and central support roles.
