Bestway Wholesale announces winners of Performance Awards

Employees from across Bestway Wholesale’s business – from drivers and pickers to depot managers and head office colleagues – were honoured last night (5 May) for their ‘exemplary behaviour or outstanding achievements’ at the Bestway Performance Awards.

The nominees and winners for all of the awards were selected by colleagues from Bestway. In addition to the employee accolades, there were five supplier titles.

At the event, which was held at the The Marriott Grosvenor Square Hotel, London, managing director Dawood Pervez told the 260-strong audience: “We have over 6,000 colleagues across over 60 sites, who continue to work hard to support our customers.

“Our colleagues are our greatest asset, and I’m incredibly proud of what they have achieved over the past year.”

All winners were presented with a certificate and trophy, and employee winners additionally received a cash bonus in recognition of their commitment and hard work.
