Pelagia and Daisy were praised for their passion and approach to wellbeing by Jan Felton from Training Unlimited and Laura Turgoose, customer success manager at Access, who judged the award.

They were nominated by their manager Hester Pownall. She said: “They work in unity to support all people across our services and head office. Everyone who comes into contact with them comments on how friendly, kind and caring they are.”

People and wellbeing adviser Pelagia said: “This award represents the validation and recognition for all the work that goes into our everyday operations, the positive impact that our support and advice has had on our colleagues and our dedication to the organisation’s values and goals. We are absolutely thrilled and humbled to read all the amazing feedback from our colleagues and we are looking forward to delivering the same high standard people services for yet another year!”

Daisy added: “I was honoured to even be considered for this award, winning is the icing on the cake. I am so grateful to everyone who recognises the hard work both myself and my colleague Pelagia do on a daily basis. I am proud to work for an organisation that celebrates its employee’s achievements on such a high level.”

The awards recognise and pay tribute to individuals and teams who inspire others, go above and beyond expectations and make a real difference to the lives of the people we support.

Pelagia and Daisy were among over 150 people who were nominated for the awards, which were sponsored by telecommunications provider Focus Group. The Behind the Scenes award was sponsored by McCormick Electricals.
