All 36 shortlisted nominees, and those who nominated them, attended the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony hosted by Paul Martin, a member of the world-famous Magic Circle and award winning AIMC with Silver Star. Paul, a master magician and mind reader, ensured that everyone at the 5th annual awards ceremony celebrated their achievements in style.
The 14 category awards, all sponsored by HCL’s valued suppliers, were presented to those who had provided outstanding service and showed initiative, innovation and creativity in their role. The awards were presented to HCL catering teams, contract managers and mobile workers by the award sponsors.
Ian Hamilton, Chief Executive of HCL and a member of this year’s judging panel, said: “I’d like to thank everyone and congratulate the winners for their commitment and dedication and for making HCL such an inspiring company to be involved with. We have so many talented staff at HCL, I am proud of every single one of them.”
The dazzling HCL awards celebrate the professionalism and the skills within HCL’s workforce. An unprecedented 130 nominations came in from Head Teachers, Business Managers, and HCL Management in recognition of the outstanding performance and contribution to the organisation individual colleagues and teams of HCL staff have made.
