Positive People, Positive Impact!

Lintott was very proud to be involved with the nmcn People Awards 2020 held on Thursday 12th December, and especially as one of it’s employees Carl Carpenter won an award for “Positive Impact”.

Carl joined Lintott in May 2006, as a Junior Design Engineer.  His career path has seen him progress to a Project Engineer position, which is highly technical and the hinge pin between the project manager and the engineering solution.  This role involves a high degree of stakeholder engagement and most notably with the client.  In this role, Carl epitomises the essence of customer service, and is consistently going “above and beyond”, which led him to receive Lintott’s “Outstanding Contribution of the Year” in 2018, for being “Best in Class”, and most recently receiving “Outstanding Achievers Award” in November 2020. This latest recognition is testament to his high capability and hardworking ethos and sets the bar for others to follow.  He is a good friend and cares deeply for his colleagues at Lintott.

Congratulations to Carl from all your friends and colleagues at Lintott, and a big well done to the rest of the winners!

Lintott’s Winter Appeal!

Aligning with nmcn’s “Our Communities: Winter Appeal” & the Company’s local campaign with the Trussell Group, Lintott has been actively raising awareness & donating to the Norwich Foodbank (as 2020’s nominated charity). As part of the Winter Appeal scheme, food donation bins were situated throughout the Company’s Norwich HQ. Lintott’s amazing staff generously gave 200+ items!

Earlier in the year, a team of six colleagues attended the Foodbank to pick & prepare food parcels. Seeking to expand support, a large proportion of colleagues elected to donate their birthday gift (rom the Company (exchanged into a monetary value) as a charitable gift. The final figure was then doubled by the Company. A small number of Lintott colleagues attended the Foodbank & presented both the cheque & food donation (pictured below). Two simple gestures – at a very important time of the year!
