Deadline for Utility Week Awards approaches

The deadline to enter the 2020 Utility Week Awards is imminent but there is still time to shape your submission.  

Entries will remain open until Friday 2 October but if you register your intention to enter you get an automatic extension to 16 October.

The prestigious celebration of excellence across the utilities sector this year features 13 categories, including several new awards.

These include a focus on net zero, on how utilities helped to keep us connected during the Covid-19 pandemic and best practice in helping vulnerable customers.

We are also seeking entries for employer of the year for the first time. This will celebrate outstanding leadership and commitment from utilities to investing in their employees, protecting their wellbeing, and championing diversity and inclusion.

As lead judge, Sue Ferns, deputy general secretary of Prospect, says: “Our employer of the year will provide their workforce with the opportunities to make good use of their skills and develop their careers. They will be inclusive, drawing on all of the available talent pool, genuinely listen to their employees and strive to build a culture based on trust and fairness.”

Utility Week content director Jane Gray says: “The Utility Week Awards are the unrivalled forum for recognition and celebration of the sector’s highest achievements. Year after year, we shine the spotlight on the best examples of operational excellence, strategic vision and demonstrations of responsible business the industry has to offer. And increasingly, as the sector responds to extreme forces for change – exerted by climate change, digitisation, growing populations and, this year, the unexpected impacts of a global pandemic, we also highlight the hard work companies are undertaking to innovate in the interests of their customers, wider stakeholders and society at large.”
