Nominate a colleague for an award
The Feel the Difference Awards are all about nominating someone who develops their service, genuinely cares and does their bit to provide a truly heartfelt service.
The awards for the small things that we sometimes take for granted, but that mean so much to the people who use our services, our colleagues as well as the communities we serve across England.
It could be anything from going above and beyond to create extra support for the most vulnerable, or delivering an impressive set of results on our annual colleague survey.
We have a monthly award for each of our values – Strive for better, Heartfelt Service and Team Spirit – that focus on allowing anyone to nominate a colleague for an award. Each month a panel who work in our services across the country select the winner through a vote.
Then, in January each year all of our monthly winners are invited to our very special annual awards night where members of our Executive Team hear about the difference our teams have made and give out the very special annual awards.
It’s our way of celebrating our colleagues wonderful contributions that drive Virgin Care every single day.
