“At the MDHUB, we support MDs at all stages of their professional development. We presented Emma Penn, plastics manufacturer Nordell’s head of HR, with our Rising Star award, for her phenomenal drive and commitment to her job. This award was available to attendees of our Futurehub programme that develops future business leaders.
MDHUB’s Phil Green has watched Emma thrive on the Futurehub course, and described how “Emma’s dedication to her team, her company and her boss shines through everything she does. There have been times on the Futurehub programme when we have all sat back stunned with the latest things Emma is dealing with. She throws herself into the tasks and challenges on the programme, leading some challenges and proving a great team player on others, she soaks up the learning and is very clearly one to watch for the future.”
Nordell’s MD Paul Mason sung Emma’s praises too, with anecdotes that illustrate her dedication and skill: “Not only did Emma successfully guide, recruit and onboard 120 new staff inside of 12 months, our new staff were integrated seamlessly with our existing [staff]. Emma performed further miracles through implementing two completely new shifts over weekend days and nights. Over the coming months, our business continued to evolve to its demands, Emma again delivered on several shift changes for the business which were precisely implemented and positively received by staff.”
It’s fantastic to see such drive, and we’re all excited to see how Emma continues to develop and prove her skills in the future.”
