STAR Awards 2019

STAR (Special Thanks and Recognition) Awards formally recognise the outstanding contributions of our colleagues.

Do you know a colleague or a team who stand out from the crowd?  Someone who goes that extra mile or makes a difference at work and deserves to be recognised for it - then why not nominate them for a STAR Award?

The scheme will follow a similar format as previous years, the guidance provided in terms of headings that nominations may be made under are suggestions only and nominators may submit an entry under a different heading as long as they are able to illustrate an outstanding contribution in some way.

Entries must be supported by sufficient evidence therefore nominators should think hard about the information being provided to ensure it demonstrates the impact of the colleagues/teams contribution.

We will be accepting nominations from Monday 26 August until Friday 13 September 2019.

Nomination forms and guidance are available here –
