Watford BID – Service Excellence Awards 2019
Watford BID Service Excellence Awards 2021 – now open
The annual Watford BID Service Excellence Awards are back for a fifth year.

It has been an incredibly tough year for BID businesses and their staff, packed full of uncertainties. Now, more than ever, we want to recognise those that deserve particular praise and say a collective thanks to everyone in Watford town centre for doing their bit.

In recognition of the fact that many businesses are either closed or operating with significantly reduced staff numbers, we have decided to change the format.

This year we want BID businesses to simply nominate any member(s) of staff who deserves recognition for their hard work in these very extraordinary and challenging times.

Special thanks to Murrill Construction who have provided a generous contribution towards prizes for our winners.

Entering the Awards

This past year has been crippling for so many businesses. Our Excellent Employee award gives you an opportunity to publicly recognise any members of your staff that have gone above and beyond to keep your business afloat.

Have you staff members that have made you particularly proud? Who have you relied on to keep your business going? Who has demonstrated resilience and dedication despite being on and off furlough?

If you are a BID business, then you can enter a member(s) of staff by emailing jill@watfordbid.co.uk.

Deadline for entries is 5pm, 1 March 2021.

Business awards

We are also partnering with Watford Observer. Their readers will be encouraged to nominate businesses that deserve recognition: those that have continued to provide excellent customer service despite an unstable environment; those that have adapted to the new COVID rules particularly well; those that have stood out, despite being forced to close for much of the past year. Nominations must be sent to enquiries@watfordbid.co.uk, by 5pm 8 February 2021.

Winners will be announced on Wednesday 17 March. Unfortunately, there will not be an awards ceremony this year.
