An Oscar winning performance

8th March 2016


Everyone loves a trier and hard work will always pay off in the end. Look at Leonardo DiCaprio… For years he was the runner up, the “also ran”, the silver medallist, but finally this year his starring role in The Revenant has secured him Hollywood’s highest accolade: Best Actor at the Academy Awards.

But what about the other nominees, those people that put in the performance of their lives? Did they simply lose because Leo won?

Well the answer, really, is no, because when they star in their next movie, their name will be preceded by “Oscar Nominated.” They were still recognised as being one of the top in their field and that’s really important.

Let’s turn our attention to a Fuel Card Services sales office in the heart of Lancashire. There’s approximately 60 sales staff there. Some are at the very top in terms of sales and regularly feature at the top of the Fuel Card Services’ leader board. The person at the very top this month has won the Fuel Card Services equivalent of an Oscar, but as important as that one individual is because they topped the charts, there are another 59 people in that office who work doggedly day in, day out to get the best possible outcome for themselves and our business.

They consistently give their absolute best and never give up. Will they get to the top of the chart? Perhaps, perhaps not. The one thing that they will always receive is the recognition they deserve for what they have achieved. They get their version of the Oscar in commission and bonus; in a bottle of champagne; in a meal out paid for by the boss; and also by those two words so often forgotten about: “Thank you!”

Recognition at Fuel Card Services comes in many forms. It’s another reason why we’re proud of what we do and why we believe that everyone here is nominated for that best performance “Oscar.”

More importantly, everyone that works hard wins it!
