‘The Best of Apex’ winners announced!
Last week, the winners of ‘The Best of Apex’ Awards were announced at our staff conference held in Waterside Theatre in Derry~Londonderry. Nine winners were announced in total, with two winners in each of the four individual categories and one team winner.
The Best of Apex Awards recognise and celebrate the amazing people and teams who work to deliver our services. Congratulations to all our winners and thank you to everyone who took part by nominating an individual or team.
Speaking at the event, Linda Watson, commented:
As an Apex Board member and member of the judging panel, I was extremely impressed by the nominations received for these awards. It’s clear that Apex staff are highly regarded by our tenants, residents and their families; and by colleagues and management. We heard numerous examples of staff across the organisation going the extra mile, more recently often in difficult circumstances. There were so many nominees worthy of an award.
