Deadline extended to nominate your highways HEROES
The deadline for nominations for the highways HEROES awards has now been extended by a week to September 7th, Safer Highways have announced.
Speaking about the decision , Safer Highways Chief Executive, Kevin Robinson explained the reasoning behind the decision,
He said, "Owing to the fact that many organisations were finding approvals on nominations approvals difficult to finalise during the summer break and the sheer number of entries we have received we felt it only right to offer organisations the opportunity to submit as we return to normal works following the school holidays.
"As we had hoped, our sector have taken the highways HEROES into their hearts and engagement has been phenomenal with a higher than expected number of entries received to date.
"That said we have also been inundated with requests for more time due to approvals being difficult during school holidays.
"Therefore, as we strive to recognise our people we felt it only right to allow them the time to ensure that their submission met with the necessary protocols from within our member companies."
Whether its saving someone from danger or risk of injury, helping a member of the public to safety, or supporting a team member in the face of abuse the highways heroes awards recognise individuals who have coped admirably in the face of adversity, to recognise the heroic actions of them which, until now, has gone unnoticed. There are no specific categories for the awards due to our firm belief that no good deed or selfless act should go unnoticed. There are no limits on the number of people who can be nominated from each organisation by any specific nominator. When nominating think the three B’s-Brave, bold and beyond. Brave: Has anyone in your team of any of the companies you work with in the supply chain displayed an act of bravery to help someone else? It could be a fellow worker or a member of the public. Bold: Has any individual been bold enough to tackle and issue that might have otherwise been ignored? Have they been bold enough to take on a challenge that improves a situation or helps someone out? Beyond: Has the person or team you are thinking of nominating gone above and beyond their daily duties to show coverage and noble, decent qualities or simply went over and above to help or support someone or improve something? We don’t need you to write an essay or even get the grammar right, we just need you to step back from the day job and think about all those things we do that go above and beyond the ‘day job’. Ideally, we want people to nominate their colleagues, peers, team members or managers or maybe the person is an industry colleague from another company. There are no specific categories or minimum criteria as we know the selfless acts of those in our industry know no boundaries. However, to give you some guidance, you can nominate someone for a random act of kindness, for courage, bravery or even saving a life. Maybe it’s someone who took it upon themselves to help a charity and got their company and colleagues on board to ‘just do more’ or perhaps it’s someone in the office who always goes over and above to help the team…the list is endless.
