Our seventh annual Staff Recognition and Excellence Awards were held on Thursday, March 19 at Glasgow’s prestigious Royal Concert Hall. The ceremony was hosted by Jane McCarry, better known as Still Game’s Isa, and was attended by more than 300 staff, nominees and guests.
This year 1,457 nominations were received from colleagues, clients, and the public, each highlighting the hard work and dedication of Cordia employees across Glasgow.
Winners were picked from 15 categories across the four main service areas of the organisation; Care Services, Facilities Management, Encore Hospitality Services, and Management and Support. There were also two additional awards for this year’s Commonwealth Games.
Speaking after the awards, our managing director David Melvin said: “The Staff Recognition and Excellence Awards evening is a particular favourite of mine as it gives both our Board and the senior management team the opportunity to say thanks and to pay tribute to the hard-working people of Cordia, who deliver the organisation’s many services across Glasgow and beyond.
“Our staff members play vital roles in the lives of thousands of Glaswegians each and every day and often go above and beyond in their duties.
“They are ambassadors of both Cordia and Glasgow. This was never more evident than during last year’s unforgettable summer when the Commonwealth Games brought the city alive during 11 days of competition.
“Many of our people embraced the spirit of the Games; they worked hard, joined in and helped to underline all that is good about our city and its people.
“That is why we have included two special Commonwealth Games awards at this year’s ceremony – and in honour of the games they reward both individual and team achievement.
