Elior UK celebrates employee excellence at 15th annual awards ceremony

Leading contract caterer Elior UK championed its finest employees in the 15th annual Elior Awards for Excellence on Wednesday 20 March. The glittering awards ceremony was part of a conference and a day of celebration and recognition.

Welcoming over 200 guests - including suppliers, clients and finalists – the awards ceremony celebrated talent and commitment across all divisions and regions of the business.
Guests were treated to a spectacular lunch, designed by this year's Elior UK Culinary Competition Grand Finalists, and once again they had the chance to select the winner of the You Made a Difference award in a live vote. The twelve employee accolades also included the Sustainability Contribution and Site Colleague of the Year awards.
Catherine Roe, Elior UK CEO, said: “Congratulations to all of our winners – your hard work and passion to be the best, enjoy what you do and deliver exceptional customer experiences truly represent what Elior is all about. I’m proud to recognise your individual contributions in each award – and you should be too!”
