Greene King award winners revealed
Greene King team members recently celebrated their 2020 successes at the Pride of Greene King Awards.
Following the challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic, Greene King team members recently celebrated their 2020 successes at the Pride of Greene King Awards.
The pub company and brewer hosted the awards virtually, with CEO Nick Mackenzie and Virgin Radio presenter Johnny Cochrane running the event, which recognised teams and individuals for their outstanding achievements.
The awards recognised the stars of the company, along with honours for Team of the Year, Outstanding Contribution and the Happiness Award.
Winners included The Kings Arms pub team in Bagshot, which won the We Care award for playing a pivotal role in supporting the lives of their locals, including raising £2,000 to provide free Christmas Day meals to those who were struggling.
The overall Team of the Year award was voted for on the night by Greene King employees, with the prize going to the Chef & Brewer team, who were nominated for their amazing work when pubs were able to reopen last year.
"We wanted to recognise our teams and individuals for their outstanding examples of commitment and brilliance," says Mackenzie. "We’ve seen incredible stories all around the business of our teams doing really great things in their communities during lockdown and felt it was important to celebrate some of the amazing things that happened during an extraordinary year."
