The Communication Group plc assisted in media preparations for the BQF 2016 UK Excellence Awards, sponsored by bathstore, the UK’s leading specialist bathroom retailer. The awards took place on the 13th October and recognise exceptional and sustained performance in customer service, innovation, employee engagement, leadership and sustainability.
The 2016 UK Excellence Award, one of the highest accolades any organisation in the UK can achieve, was presented jointly to the University of Winchester and CrossCountry Trains. Assessors identified clear evidence of a shared leadership approach and the existence of a developed leadership culture within the University of Winchester. Likewise, the leadership culture within CrossCountry is a strongly positive one and there is a willingness to be innovative and creative and try new things. The 2016 awards were also the first to be gamified, with Play Consulting demonstrating the power and versatility of Totem, its revolutionary new app-based software that boosts operational performance through greater employee engagement.
Throughout the evening, The Communication Group plc also conducted various interviews with the award winners, sponsors and Karren Brady CBE.
