Hygeia Award wins for Rentokil employees

British Pest Control Association member Rentokil Initial is celebrating after two of its employees scooped Hygeia Awards for commitment to public health.

Richard Murphy-Packer and Matthew Herz received awards for commitment to public health.

At a ceremony held by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH), Rentokil Initial employees were crowned winners in both the ‘Pest Management’ and ‘Excellence in Learner Support’ Award categories.

The Hygeia Awards recognise the achievements of learners and centres, and are awarded by the RSPH, the world’s longest-established public health body.

This year the awards were expanded to include centres, tutors and learners taking qualifications that are not assessed by an examination.

In recognition for their dedication, commitment and inspiration to learners, Richard Murphy-Packer won the Excellence in Learner Support Award, and Matthew Herz was presented with the Pest Management Award, which recognises the individual who achieved the highest mark in the RSPH Level 2 Pest Management exam.

David Cross, Head of Technical Training Academy, Rentokil Pest Control said: “We are delighted to see members of the team being recognised at the Hygeia Awards for the second year in a row.

"These award wins are testament to the hard work and commitment our employees deliver in the field to our customers. Rentokil Initial invests heavily in training to ensure all of our colleagues are given opportunities to learn new skills and develop their careers.

"These awards highlight our commitment to learners through our high levels of teaching and support, which have resulted in high pass rates.”
