- The One4all Spotlight Awards recognise employee excellence in SMEs throughout Ireland
One4all, in association with Chambers Ireland, has launched its search for ‘Ireland’s best employee’ with the 2018 Spotlights – awards that shine a light and reward employees that have made an outstanding contribution to their company over the past year.
One4all created the Spotlights to give SMEs a platform to recognise employees that go the extra mile, and to offer employers and colleagues the facility to reward these unsung heroes. Chambers Ireland, Ireland’s largest business organisation, has teamed up with One4all to champion the awards around Ireland and to encourage businesses and staff all over the country to nominate employees who have excelled over the last 12 months. So whether they’re a great team player, an innovative thinker or a natural leader, this is your chance to put them in the spotlight.
The awards are open to all employers and employees of Irish SMEs. Applications will be judged by an independent panel of business leaders and journalists, including members of Chambers Ireland.
To enter the Spotlights, simply visit https://www.one4allrewards.ie/spotlights and fill in the short form to nominate your chosen employee or work colleague, explaining why they should receive recognition in no more than 300 words. Entries close on Friday 14th December. Judging will take place over Christmas and winners will be announced early 2019. As well as receiving an award, the Spotlight winners will receive a €500 One4all Gift Card, with runner up prizes of €250 and €100 gift cards also available.
