A huge congratulations to Kevin Skeith, a self-employed flooring specialist from Sleaford, who takes the title of UK Worker Of The Year 2016.

Worker Of The Year 2016


From April until mid-September 2016 we were busy taking entries for this year’s UK Worker Of the Year competition in association with ASDA and Honda. Having received thousands of entries both directly online and track-side at the various BSB meeting throughout the year we managed to whittle down the entries to our 6 lucky finalists. The six finalists spent the entire weekend with our judging panel, as well as representatives from Dickies, ASDA & Honda and of course our special guest (BSB legend) Chris ‘The Stalker’ Walker. This weekend was during the final races of this season British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch (14th-16th October), so our finalists were also treated to a full weekend of VIP hospitality at the races!


Our six finalists for this year were:

Kevin Skeith, our winner of course!

Christine Vaghela, an electrician from Elstree

Paul Harris, an electronics engineer from County Durham

Samantha Lea, a firefighter from Nottingham

Guy Hodgson, a builder from the West Midlands

Charlotte Morton, a farmer from South Yorkshire

All six are pictured below, showing off the choice of 1st prize offered by Honda as part of our winning package:



1st prize was:

  • A choice of any of the Honda vehicles shown above. Kevin opted for the Crosstourer 1200cc motorbike!
  • A years worth of FREE SHOPPING, courtesy of ASDA (up to the value of £100 per week)
  • An opportunity to land £250,000 in cash(!) by predicting the correct positions for the top 6 riders in the final race of the season. Unfortunately Kevin didn’t land this, but was undoubtedly delighted with his other fantastic prizes regardless.

2nd place:

  • £2,000 in holiday vouchers
  • 3 months worth of FREE SHOPPING, courtesy of ASDA (up to the value of £100 per week)

3rd place:

  • £1,000 in holiday vouchers
  • 1 months worth of FREE SHOPPING, courtesy of ASDA (up to the value of £100 per week)

Christine Vaghela landed 2nd place & Paul Harris achieved 3rd place & can both be seen below:

  1. Every one who works should enter.
    This is an awesome competition.
    It has made a massive impact on my life, just reaching the final, let alone going on to win it.
    Even if like me, you think it could never be you, enter.
    You’ve got to be in it to win it.

    • You certainly have got to be in it to win it. You’ve done so well. Congratulations from all of us at Dickies.
