Compass Group UK & Ireland, the UK’s largest food and support services firm, recognised the outstanding talent and services of its employees at its annual Be A Star Awards.
The annual event was held on Thursday November 17, at the Natural History Museum in London and celebrated colleagues who have gone the extra mile to deliver an exceptional service to clients and customers.
As an employer of 60,000 people, being shortlisted for a Be A Star Award is quite an achievement. Throughout the year, colleagues and clients are able to nominate those who they believe have gone above and beyond and shortlisted candidates are then entered into a final judging process before the winners are announced.
Out of 200 shortlisted nominees, nine winners were announced during the evening across seven categories which reflect the key values of the business, including: Responsibility, Teamwork, Passion, Can-do, Integrity, Health & Safety and Compass Group UK & Ireland’s framework to deliver operational excellence across its sites – ROAR.
Fiona Ryland, HR Director at Compass Group UK & Ireland, said: “Be A Star is one of my favourite events of the year. Our winners are truly inspirational and this awards ceremony is such a great opportunity to celebrate our people and thank them for all that they do.
“As a business that operates across a number of different sectors, whether it be security, catering or front of house, it is essential that we always aim to deliver the best service to our clients and customers. This event reflects the dedication that our colleagues put into their work on a daily basis and I would like to congratulate every person who was shortlisted.”
Rosemary Boulter who picked up the Teamwork award on behalf of her colleagues at Lagan College, said: “We’re so happy we have won this award this evening. Our boss put us forward for it and we are so pleased to take this home for all the team.”
