An awards ceremony which recognises and celebrates the talent of employees across the region has been launched.

The inaugural North East Employee of the Year Awards have been created by event management company, She’s Gott It!

It follows a number of requests from leading local businesses to host something that recognises the efforts of the region’s employees.

These awards will provide an opportunity for staff at all levels and apprentices to be recognised across the region.

Companies are encouraged to be part of the prestigious regional awards programme and celebrate in style to give North East employees the recognition they deserve.

Employees themselves, alongside managers, directors, board members and HR professionals, are encouraged to nominate staff colleagues who deserve this special acknowledgment or put forward those staff who have been recognised by internal company awards.

Recognising many aspects of employee talent will be the highlight of the event and awards for such things as Unsung Hero or Outstanding Service will celebrate the efforts of employees in the region.

The ceremony will take place on Friday, June 17, in the Grand Marquee at Wynyard Hall Hotel, Tees Valley.

She’s Gott It! managing director, Nickie Gott, said: “A company’s success relies on its performance – the staff are the face of the business. Now is the time to celebrate their talent and recognise and reward their loyalty.”

Entries to the awards are open and application forms can be downloaded from www.northeastemployeeoftheyear.com. Entry is free and for more information, call Rachel Kelly 0191 385 6619.

Tickets of the awards ceremony are £65 plus VAT and can be purchased via the event’s website.
