Who has gone above & beyond a-to-b in 2018

We know that we are lucky to have many exceptional, committed and talented people working at Abellio. An important part of the Abellio Way is recognising the brilliant work that is done each day across our business by employees who are living our values and making a difference to our customers, colleagues and clients.

We are excited to open the nominations for the 2019 Abellio Achievement awards. As previous years, we have six categories in which you can be nominated:

  • Long-term commitment to sustainable growth

Abellio Team of the Year award

How to enter

Nominating is easy – simply complete the nomination form here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/AAA2019

As long as your candidate is working within Abellio Group, Abellio OpCos or Abellio Joint Ventures (and isn't a Director), you can nominate anyone; yourself, or any person or team you wish, across any or all of the categories – there are only three simple rules to follow:

  1. The reason for your nomination, for instance, a colleague's innovative way of working, must have occurred in the last year: 2018.
  2. Whilst we recognise the magnificent achievement of lifesavers, people who are nominated for the reason of having saved someone's life will not be successful in winning an award. We encourage your employer to celebrate these great achievements internally.
  3. Entries submitted after the deadline of 17th December 2018 will not be counted.

The chosen finalists will be asked to make a very short video to bring their entry to life and these will be shown at the awards ceremony – don't worry, we're not expecting a Hollywood style production. Be creative with little means.

The experience

This year's finalists, made up of three nominees per category, will be invited to attend our glamorous black-tie awards ceremony on 21st March 2019 at The Principal, Edinburgh.

As well as enjoying a great night of celebration and recognition each of our winners will receive a £350 Gift Voucher to spend on an Experience Day to remember forever.

So whether your own achievements deserve acclaim, or you know someone, or even a whole team of people that go above and beyond a-to-b, get involved and send in your nominations by 17th December 2018.
