Staff Awards 2021

We launched our first staff awards in October 2021, to celebrate the hard work, dedication and supportive care given by our staff and teams. Staff were invited to nominate colleagues they feel go above and beyond the call of duty. The first seven awards focused on effectively demonstrating each of the CCG’s core values:

Further categories celebrated:

  • People’s Choice Award
  • Outstanding Leadership
  • Best Team
  • Unsung Hero
  • Going the Extra Mile

We received an incredible 89 nominations, for staff across all directorates and levels. The quality and richness of the nominations was inspiring, making the job of the judging panel very challenging.

Winners were announced at the CCG’s Christmas event. Congratulations to all our nominees and we are pleased to list the winners below, for those who weren’t able to join the Christmas event.
