Fair Deal
Fair Deal
The Isoscars are held annually to reward and recognise employees effort in bringing the values to life. Everyone has the opportunity to nominate a colleague in each category and also to nominate a ‘team of the year’. Once nominations close, a panel made up of the Chief Exec, Assistant Director (People), Chair of the Staff Forum, a manager and team leader, individually shortlist the nominations, they then meet as a group to agree the winners and runners up in each category. All of the individual winners in the values categories are then pooled together and an overall ‘employee of the year’ is chosen. Everyone who receives a nomination is commended publically and receives a branded Isoscar card that is addressed personally to them. The awards were presented by the Executive Team and Assistant Directors. This year it took place at the Beacon Centre in Newcastle.
