The 28th January soon came out of nowhere and we found ourselves celebrating our annual VOICE awards for the third time in a row, this year being held at the Bliss Hotel in sunny Southport!
Our VOICE awards enable us to recognise the hard work and achievements made by our dedicated people; throughout 2019 we asked you to nominate your colleagues if you believed they had gone that extra mile and really deserved to be rewarded for their efforts.
After being inundated with nominations for 2019, we felt it just wasn’t right for only 5 people to be recognised as so many had worked so hard! With that being said, we decided that we needed to recognise more colleagues for going the extra mile, presenting four colleagues with a brand new prize, the Recognising Excellence Award.
All winners received a prize of £500 worth of Electrical Goods or a Spa day for two. We then asked all attendants of the evening to vote for their overall winner of the VOICE Awards. The runner up received an additional night’s stay at the Bliss Hotel, and the overall winner winning a mini break for two where GBA have a depot (Austria, Poland, Portugal, Germany… even Sunny Scunny!)
After the votes on the night (and they were really close!), our runner up was Kellyann Hall, and the overall winner…Tariq Akram!
We would like to say firstly a huge thank you to our winners, as a company it is essential we have colleagues like ours helping GBA to achieve success, it really wouldn’t be possible without them. And of course a huge congratulations to our winners, the awards received were thoroughly deserved.
