The Judges’ Comments

The submission was a great example of a team coming together to effectively manage a massive logistical challenge at the most guarded and protected nuclear site in the UK.

The undertaking of a project of this nature in itself presents multiple logistical challenges from health & safety, access/registration for 5000 guests, security, contractors as well as keeping the site protected and working at all times. The team produced an entry that was perfectly presented and engaged the judges by telling the story of how the logistical challenge was managed and the process of how each challenge was overcome. The aim of the event was to enable 5,000 family members and friends of the employees to see what their work involves on a day to day basis and based upon the feedback presented, the event ran seamlessly.

The judges scored this entry highly based upon the fact that they not only overcame significant logistical challenges, but that the event itself also provided some reward for its delegates. The event offered an element of CSR as an outcome, providing a family friendly experiential experience and giving something back to the wider company community, resulting in employees feeling proud to work for an organisation that takes time to invest in its employees.
