This year, 6 February 2018 marks 100 years since the Representation of the People Act 1918 first gave some women the right to vote. We are proud to have a diverse team at Clarity Environmental, and have a large proportion of women in senior and decision-making roles.
To celebrate this momentous centenary anniversary, each day this week we will introduce you to some of the women that have been instrumental in developing our business, and helping it to grow and succeed. Here we look back on their achievements and tell you more about what makes them great.
Keeping our business fighting fit
Hayley is the longest-serving member of our team. Working with Clarity for over 10 years, Hayley has seen the business develop and diversify, and is a fundamental part of our team today.
Joining us as an administrator, Hayley later supported our WEEE compliance scheme by assisting in the data submission processes. In 2011 she took on the responsibility for our ISO accreditation, and has meticulously developed a vast range of policies and procedures for each of our divisions, which hold our business together and ensure it is run to the highest standards. We first received approval to ISO 9001 for quality management, and ISO 14001 for environmental management, in December 2011. With her commitment to finding new ways to build and improve on our management systems, we have successfully maintained our certification over the last seven years.
Hayley is also a helpful and kind member of the team, which was evident when she was awarded ‘Team member of the year’ at our first staff awards last year. However, her calm and caring nature belie a hidden talent.
In 2013, in a bid to increase her fitness Hayley started Thai Boxing. Five years on and Hayley remains unbeaten, winning her first professional fight in October last year.
Hayley said of her achievements: “Originally I started doing Thai Boxing to keep fit, but as time went on I challenged myself and my anxieties further. I wanted to test myself and see if I could put the skills I had learned into practice, so I started doing friendly interclub competitions, which then progressed onto fighting at bigger shows.
“It’s a tough sport that allows you to push yourself to your limits both mentally and physically, but I train with great coaches and a team that has become like a family and so the rewards are worth the efforts.”
We are incredibly proud of Hayley’s achievements both in and out of the office.
