The Civil Service Awards are a fantastic opportunity to recognise the great work that goes on in the Civil Service. To thank people and teams for the fantastic things they do. Now, last year we had 15 awards, and they covered pretty much every aspect of the Civil Service: from our professions through to our individual projects, through to our commercial and digital skills and our other priorities. So wherever you work in the Civil Service, you’ll find one of these awards that links to what you do.
What I’d like you to do, is to talk to your teams, and talk to your line managers and see if you think you’ve got something special that you would want to see recognised. This is a great event; we have a fantastic evening and everybody, both nominees and winners really enjoy coming along. So between now and the 25 July, I would like you to go on the awards website and put in your nominations. You won’t regret it, it’s a fantastic evening and I look forward to seeing you there.
