The office hasn’t been the same this year, has it? The pandemic has thrown all sorts of challenges the way of most businesses in the Sheffield City Region, but despite the current situation we all find ourselves in, the office still plays a huge part in our working lives.
It might be at more of a distance this year, but the heartbeat of any office remains the same – it’s people! That’s why we are still holding our annual Office Heroes Awards, as this year more than ever, we should be celebrating the office heroes behind every business.
What is an office hero?
It’s a colleague you couldn’t do without, a person who goes above and beyond day after day to support you, your team and your business. It’s someone that keeps everything running smoothly and adds that extra value to make a real difference in your organisation.
In 2020, this could be the person that has helped your teams tackle remote working, the person behind those Zoom meetings, or quite simply the person who has been at the other end of the phone offering emotional support to business leaders across the region.
We have all had to adapt to different ways of working, so we want to hear about those employees who are not necessarily in the limelight, who have become the lynchpin of the office as we slowly return to a more normal working environment.
So, we want to hear about who has gone the extra mile for your business this year – whether they are hard workers, morale boosters, team players or generally just great to have around! It’s not about job titles or turnover figures, it’s about the human side to the workplace.
What’s in store at this year’s awards?
As we enter the third year of the awards, we have teamed up with unLTD business once again to celebrate the regions unsung heroes, but as you would expect, we need to do things differently this time.
So instead of a physical event, we are running the awards virtually!
There will still be ten finalists, selected from the nominations by our panel of judges, who will also choose the overall winner, highly commended finalists and special mentions. As ever, some fantastic prizes are also up for grabs!
So, if you think it’s about time that someone in your office deserves a little recognition for the work they do, fill in our online form at www.glurecruit.co.uk/office-heroes-2020/ or drop us a note to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for entries is 4pm on Friday 13th November, with the shortlist announced on Friday 20th November.
The virtual awards ceremony will take place on Friday 4th December 2020.
