'Living It' Awards
Are you Living it?
Recognising and thanking your colleagues has never been easier and now is the perfect time to start thinking about nominations as your leader should have completed their training, BEST workshops are happening, teams are coming up with actions to improve the service we deliver to our customers.
Each month there is the opportunity to congratulate and share in the success of Leaders, Managers, Teams and Senior Managers that are truly living the values of Belief, Excellence, Success & Trust in their daily working lives. All winners receive a trophy, certificate and the chance to feature more widely in newsletters, inner voice and web (if they want to).
