With everyone working hard to make sure our customers have the right property and services support, it’s easy to get sucked into the day-to-day and to lose sight of the bigger picture. We do a great job at Workplace and everyone’s role and contribution makes a difference.

So, I’m delighted with news this morning that Workplace has been recognised by the property industry’s leading annual awards and that we have been shortlisted in the ‘Occupier of the Year’ category in Property Week’s ‘Property Awards’.  This is recognition from our peers and from our industry that, from what they see, they think our team is one of the best in the business – and that’s no insignificant accolade or achievement.

The shortlisting means that we will now go forward to the national finals where we are up against other major commercial property occupiers across a mix of sectors including KPMG, Whitbread (Premier Inn), Primark and Travelodge.

A decision will be announced at the Awards Dinner on 5 April 2011. We’ll keep you posted.

Everyone across the ONE Workplace team has played their own part in helping us to secure this recognition and credit must go to all.
