Coming out of the 2014 GEL Employee Engagement Survey of 2014 conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers, the management of McBride Caribbean Ltd. saw it fit to create a Recognition and Rewards Scheme to supplement its existing employee awards programme.

For the first time in its 28-year history, McBride in 2016 named an Employee of the Year.  The title was awarded based on the scores achieved in an internal customer service survey, annual performance appraisals and attendance.  The coveted title was bestowed upon Maintenance Technician, Mr. Wilfred Alleyne, who joined McBride in 1994.  Engineering & Facilities Manager, Mr. Prince Forde describes Alleyne as dedicated and committed, someone who goes well above and beyond the call of duty and who is solutions-oriented.  Worth noting is that at 64 years of age, Wilfred also achieved perfect attendance in 2016 for a second consecutive year. Wilfred has an unmatched 20 years’ experience in aerosol manufacture and is certainly an invaluable asset to the Engineering department and to McBride.

Well beloved among his colleagues, Wilfred is a joy to work with and will no doubt carry the Employee of the Year title well.  Congratulations, Wilfred and keep up the excellent work!
