The RailStaff Awards 2024

Nominations for Health & Wellbeing Award

Christine Tooke

Said the following about Marlon Brooks:

“I am nominating Marlon because he always makes sure his collegues are ok. Just recently I was having a really bad day in work and was ready to walk out of the door. Nobody else had picked up on how low I was but Marlon did. He asked me if I was ok and I said that I was not ok and didnt want to talk, I was very teary. He was persistent in a kind way and stood with me and started to chat with with me. We talked it through. Working on the frontline can be very challenging and sometimes our jobs get the better of us. This is not the first time Marlon has gone out of his way to help a collegue in distress. I dont think he has been nominated for an award for this before. He would probably say its just part of his job, but he is always there to without judgment to listen when staff want to let off steam. Thank you Marlon.“
