Colleagues celebrated at virtual awards


Colleagues from across Lincolnshire Co-op have been celebrated for their outstanding efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.

The community retailer would normally hold a glitzy awards ceremony to honour teams across the business, but due to restrictions it wasn’t possible this year.

So instead, the Society held a week-long virtual celebration which culminated in all 2,900 colleagues working for Lincolnshire Co-op being given an award and a £50 gift to celebrate their achievements over the past year.

Gold, silver, and bronze Branch of the Year awards – based on factors including positive customer feedback and service delivery – were also given out during the week.

Additional special awards were also given to 23 colleagues across the Society who had gone above and beyond.

The Society’s Chief Executive, Ursula Lidbetter said: “Our award-winning Branches of the Year have all excelled in the providing their valued services, despite the challenges of the pandemic. And our individual winners have demonstrated everything that makes us special as an organisation.

“Every colleague has played a part this year, so it’s fantastic that we are able to celebrate our collective achievements, as well as individual accolades.”
