Nominations for the 2017 Star Awards will open on 6 February and I write to encourage everyone to put forward the name of anyone you think deserves an award for the work they do at the Council.

This year sees the introduction of a number of new award categories: Improving Customer Experience; Improving Staff Experience and Improving Use of Resources.  You might recognise these themes…

Award nominations are also sought for great examples of Collaboration and Innovation.  We’ll also find our Shining Star and our Rising Star and a People’s Champion – an unsung hero who deserves recognition. The People’s Champion category is nominated by members of the public, and it’s always great to hear how colleagues go the extra mile for the people of Aberdeen.

This year we’re also looking for nominations for Team of the Year – this is a chance to nominate your team or a team you work with for their outstanding contribution to the work of the Council.

There’s more information about the categories and how to nominate on the Star Awards page on The Zone.

Nominations close on 8 March.  Make this the year that you take the chance recognise the Stars!
