SafeMove Scoops Awards at The BQF UK Excellence Awards 2020

Just before Chrismas on the 17th December, SafeMove attended the prestigious BQF UK Excellence Awards which were held online this year for reasons we are all aware of.

Opened by the BQF’s patron HRH The Princess Royal, SafeMove were shortlisted in three categories at this year’s event:

  • Emerging Business Improvement and Transformation Leader, Vicky Farrell (Sponsored by the BQF Board)
  • Excellence in Employee Engagement (sponsored by Reliance Worldwide Corporation)
  • UK Excellence Award 2020 in the SME category (sponsored by AstraZeneca)

SafeMove were up against some tough competition who continually set the bar high when it came to business excellence across the UK.

As the evening wore on SafeMove were thrilled to be announced as the winners of the 2020 BQF UK Excellence Award for Employee Engagement award and the UK Excellence Award 2020 in the SME category. The second time SafeMove have taken this coveted prize.

Vicky Farrell, Service Delivery Manager at SafeMove commented;

I am absolutely over the moon to have reached the final in not one, but three categories in the BQF 2020 Awards. Emerging Leader finalist (Vicky Farrell), Excellence in Employee Engagement and UK Excellence finalists.

I am incredibly proud of the team achievements, winning both the Employee Engagement award, followed by the UK Excellence SME for the second time since gaining the same amazing accolade in 2018.

It is testament to the hard work of our team and the efforts in working on our EFQM development plans in our pursuit for excellence. It really shows our commitment to putting people at the heart of everything we do to ensure a first-class service to all our stakeholders.
