Quartet of Springboard Awards for Excellence Nominations for Compass Group UK & Ireland


The Springboard Awards for Excellence have been announced and Compass Group UK & Ireland is delighted to have been shortlisted for four categories, including one of the new awards added to recognise businesses who have exceeded expectations throughout the pandemic.

Springboard CEO, Chris Gamm, said of the awards: “We’ve received a record number of entries despite the pandemic, demonstrating that our hospitality industry has gone above and beyond in 2020 to support their communities and employees, adapt their business models and succeed despite the odds.”

Compass Group UK & Ireland is nominated in two individual categories – Best Use of Technology to Improve Customer Experience and Best Corporate Social Responsibility. Rapport Guest Services is shortlisted for its tireless work and innovative initiatives to achieve the Best Employee Health & Wellbeing; and Medirest, Compass’ healthcare business, is one of four companies honoured to be up for Best National Support for Key Workers, one of the special awards added this year to showcase the extraordinary work hospitality businesses have achieved in the last 12 months.  Additionally, Compass Group PLC is a finalist for Best Implementation of Virtual Training.

Robin Mills, MD, Compass Group UK & Ireland, commented: “Springboard does a fantastic job for our great industry and it is especially important now to continue to attract and help people to achieve their potential through training, advice and guidance. It is always a privilege to be recognised and make the finals at an awards ceremony, but this year I feel especially proud of the teams behind the brilliant work which has led to these four nominations, many of whom have been at the forefront of the Covid response. After a year of uncertainty and exceptional circumstances being acknowledged by Springboard at their Awards for Excellence makes all the hard work worthwhile.”

The Springboard Awards for Excellence virtual event is on the 18th March where 17 winners will be unveiled and celebrated. Good luck to all the nominees.
