On Friday 2nd December, Ferrovial Agroman presented the first edition of the Ferrovial Agroman Values Awards at the annual event to celebrate the year’s achievements and the beginning of the festive season.
For a number of years, the Graduate of the Year Award has been a key element of the annual dinner, but 2016 marked the beginning of increasing the number of awards to 7 in total, offering us the opportunity to extend the recognition and reward of our incredibly talented members of the wider team.
The awards categories are our company values of Innovation, Respect, Collaboration, Integrity, Excellence. A nominee for each value was put forward from each project or business area and the overall winner was then selected by the independent panel of judges.
An additional category was the Spirit Award which gave the whole company the opportunity to nominate the person who they believe best represents the combined company values. The panel of judges then compiled a shortlist of ten people who were then put to an online vote, involving the whole company again.
Mario Mostoles, Managing Director, Ferrovial Agroman UK & Ireland:
“The Ferrovial Agroman Christmas event is an excellent opportunity to celebrate the achievements and awards on our projects here in the UK. This year, and looking ahead, it will also give us the opportunity to recognise the achievements and successes of individuals. It gives me immense pride to see the quality of nominations, to hear the support among the teams on the night and to be able to have a forum to really celebrate the incredible people we have in our organisation who uphold our values day after day, even in the most challenging situations. I would like to congratulate every one of the nominees, and each of the winners this year”
There was an incredible response to the call for participation in the Values Awards. A total of 96 people were nominated by colleagues for the Spirit Award and over 200 people voted online.
We would like to thank everyone for participating and to our wonderful panel of judges and express our congratulations to everyone who was nominated.
