The awards were judged by representatives from each department and included three supplier titles, as well as the employee accolades.

At the event, which was held at the The Marriott Grosvenor Square Hotel, London, managing director Dawood Pervez told the 500-strong audience: “For over 14 years, our Performance Awards have been central to Bestway in recognising the commitment and exceptional talent we are proud to see within our own and our suppliers’ businesses.

“The awards are all about championing our people. While there have to be winners within the awards process, every one of our nominees, chosen by their colleagues, are winners. We are enormously proud of our team and wholly committed to ensuring Bestway remains a great place to work, offering strong careers, alongside development, progression and reward.”
