The very best employees and teams from the business community across the Greater Newry Area were celebrated at the Newry Chamber Employee & Team Awards 2022.
The glittering awards ceremony took place at the Canal Court Hotel & Spa on Thursday 8th September 2022 and honoured the achievements of 21 individuals and organisations.
The winners came from organisations of all sizes from start-ups to social enterprises, charities, family businesses right up to the major global players based here. The categories also reflected the key sectors in the region including retail, hospitality, professional services, construction, digital, manufacturing and engineering. The Overall Team of the Year went to Southern Area Hospice Services and Overall Employee of the Year went to Celine Grant from Re-Gen Waste. See full list of winners below.
Julie Gibbons, President of Newry Chamber said:
“There is no question the few years have been amongst the toughest times faced by businesses and society in general. However, from the over 150 award applications received by the Chamber, we can clearly see that the local economy is being driven by many hardworking, ambitious and talented people.”
“The Employee & Team Awards hold a special place for me, as this is the opportunity to really recognise our people. I often say to my team, that leaders are only as good as their team. I would say most business owners would say that if it wasn’t for the commitment, work and loyalty of their teams and “covid heroes”, we would never have made it through the last couple of difficult years.”
“The Greater Newry Area is recognised as a place synonymous with entrepreneurship, innovation, excellent service, product quality and customer care. This year’s awards have recognised the very best that this region’s business community has to offer. Well done to all individuals and teams that entered and congratulations to the winners.”
“The Awards could not happen without the generous support of our category sponsors. So we would like to thank them all.
