THE DEADLINE for entry to the One4all Rewards Spotlight Awards has been extended until Wednesday 8th June, giving SMEs an extra week to submit nominations to recognise and reward staff for outstanding contributions in the workplace. The awards will recognise the UK’s best employees in 20 categories, including 14 industry-focussed Employee of the Year awards recognising talent in different sectors – including e-commerce retail, catering and professional services, amongst others. Declan Byrne, managing director at One4all Rewards said: “We have received a large amount of entries from SMEs across the UK already, and the extended deadline will allow even more SMEs to recognise, praise, and reward their workers for their outstanding achievements and efforts. “It’s essential for companies to give something back to their employees who have gone above and beyond to drive their team and company. By hosting the Spotlight Awards we are aiming to enable a greater number of businesses to provide tangible rewards for exceptional staff, free of charge. Our esteemed judging panel is eager to review the high quality award entries submitted for this year’s awards.” Other categories include the Office Sage – which recognises an individual renowned for solving problems, the Unsung Hero – which celebrates staff who are normally overlooked; and Rising Star of the Year – to recognise employees under the age of 25. 

There is also a grand prix-style Employee of the Year Award, which will identify the UK’s best employee by selecting an overall winner from the 20 category winners. Each category winner will be awarded with a £200 One4all Gift Card, while the grand prix-style Employee of the Year Award will receive a £500 One4all Gift Card, which can be spent in more than 22,000 stores nationwide.
