Stephanie’s work at store hon­oured with trip to USA

Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views -

A SU­PER­MAR­KET worker from Brid­gend has been hand­picked for a once-in­life­time trip to the USA – in recog­ni­tion of her su­perb at­ti­tude and the in­fec­tious per­son­al­ity that she brings to work ev­ery day.

Stephanie Adams who is ser­vice host at Asda Brid­gend is one of only a hand­ful of peo­ple in the UK selected to at­tend the Share­hold­ers Con­fer­ence at Wal­mart, the world’s largest re­tailer, at the end of May in Arkansas.

Asda says Stephanie is bril­liant ex­am­ple of an Asda col­league and has been recog­nised for un­con­sciously go­ing above and be­yond for cus­tomers, sup­port­ing man­age­ment and de­liv­er­ing re­sults.

At­tended by over 15,000 Wal­mart staff from across the USA as well as from China, In­dia, Ja­pan, Mex­ico and Brazil, the con­fer­ence is to cel­e­brate the ac­com­plish­ments of the busi­ness and its peo­ple, as well as to share new ideas.

The con­fer­ence al­ways fea­tures sur­prise celebrity guests who are not revealed un­til the day. Pre­vi­ous guests have in­cluded Katy Perry, James Cor­den, Mariah Carey, Phar­rell Wil­liams and Tom Cruise.

Stephanie said: “I’m ex­cited and very proud to be go­ing to the USA to rep­re­sent Brid­gend and Asda, it re­ally is a once-ina-life­time op­por­tu­nity.

“I can’t wait to meet some of my in­ter­na­tional col­leagues and learn more about the dif­fer­ent ways in which they pro­vide bril­liant ser­vice where they work – and I’ll be telling them all about how we keep our cus­tomers happy here, too.”

Richard Jenk­ins, store man­ager at Asda Brid­gend, said: “This is a fan­tas­tic way for our col­leagues to learn more about how Wal­mart works in other coun­tries by meet­ing col­leagues from around the world and shar­ing ex­pe­ri­ences.

“We also en­cour­age those that at­tend to share what they learn with their col­leagues back home on their re­turn. I’m sure all those that are go­ing will have lots of fun but also find it a re­ally re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.”
