The Ampersand Awards

 

 

The Ampersand Awards are a great way for us to celebrate our Group values of leadership, imagination and integrity as well as our purpose. More importantly they offer the perfect the opportunity to recognise our fellow employees who consistently demonstrate our values and live out our purpose in their day to day work. There are four awards for nomination, based on attributes that embody our values.

Leadership

We believe that everyone can be a leader regardless of their job title or position. Leaders demonstrate the ability to focus as well as being adaptable and can challenge in a positive and productive way. They push the boundaries, raise standards and go the extra mile. They provide enabling support, demonstrate compassion and offer helpful direction and advice for colleagues.

Integrity

Integrity is about demonstrating accountability, respect and adopting an ethical approach. These colleagues take ownership of their work; whether it’s being honest with customer issues and addressing them, implementing feedback systems that improve processes and outcomes, or being steadfast in the quality of their delivery. They really respect other people and work to get the best outcome for everyone involved. They stand out like a beacon.

Imagination

Colleagues who display imagination demonstrate creativity and the ability to think independently. They have a vision that they articulate with others. They are curious and embrace innovation. They seek out other views and welcome diversity in the way they work.
