Thank you to all our customers who nominated staff for our annual Staff Excellence Awards. Customers nominated staff who they thought “did a great job” over the past year.
At our Staff Conference, which was held virtually on Friday, 26th November, we presented Staff Excellence Awards. These awards take place to celebrate and congratulate the commitment and dedication of Hexagon’s staff who are prepared to “go that extra mile” whilst carrying out their duties. As well as Hexagon staff being able to nominate their colleagues, YOU, the Customers, were invited to nominate a member of staff who you felt deserves to receive an award.
