Rapport recognises its exceptional people at the WOW! Awards


Rapport, Compass Group UK & Ireland’s specialist provider of exceptional guest services, celebrated the achievements and success of all of their WOW! Award winners of the past twelve months, at their annual event on 24th April 2017.

The WOW! Awards is the only independent national award provider that recognises excellent customer service based solely on guests and colleagues’ nominations.  Each month, nominations are read and adjudicated by the independent WOW! Awards team and winners are presented with a framed certificate and a bespoke bottle of Champagne at a bi-monthly event.  Over the past twelve months, individuals and teams at Rapport have been awarded an amazing 140 winning certificates. 

The WOW! Awards winners’ annual event was held at Vertigo 42, London’s highest Champagne Bar in the iconic Tower 42, London, and was attended by over 120 people from across Rapport’s UK business, as well as Derek Williams, CEO, The WOW! Awards; Dennis Hogan, Managing Director, Compass Group UK & Ireland; and Greg Mace, Managing Director, Rapport.

Greg Mace commented: “Rapport’s ethos is based on providing an exceptional personalised service. What’s great about The WOW! Awards are that the nominees are put forward by clients, guests and our teams who have witnessed first-hand the high quality services our people deliver. Our Ambassadors bring to life our core values and are testament to the success of Rapport, so it’s always great when we acknowledge the lengths they go to.”

Derek Williams, CEO of The WOW! Awards, commented: “The WOW! Awards give people an independent assessment against the best customer service organisations in the UK, enabling us to shine a spotlight on those who go the extra mile. Rapport’s annual event demonstrates the consistently high level of work that its Ambassadors provide. Outstanding guest services is key to the success of Rapport and these awards acknowledge their achievements based on actual feedback from the people around them.”

Rapport is renowned as a great place to work and was this month again named in the Top 30 Best Places to Work in Hospitality for the fourth consecutive year. The business also claimed a Two Star rating with Best Companies, the organisation behind the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for. Rapport’s HR and Training Team won the prestigious Catey Award for the way they engage and develop everyone in the company. The WOW! Awards are just another way that the business celebrates its people and the outstanding work that they do.
