People Award

We all recognise that people are the mainstay of any successful company and their contribution to their own organisations and the wider industry needs to be recognised.

Do you have individuals (or teams) that have ‘gone that extra mile’ outside of the normal requirements of their work? Perhaps someone who has established a particular process or best practice in the workplace, made an outstanding charitable achievement or body of work
across the sector.

If the answer is ‘yes’ then why not nominate them to receive this year’s People award?

ACO Water Management are the proud Sponsors of the People Award
