There are just four weeks left for companies to enter into the Utility Week Stars Awards 2017.

The awards scheme run by Utility Week is now in its fourth year and aims to make a bigger splash than ever at the final awards ceremony in Manchester on 23 June.

The Utility Week Stars Awards are dedicated to recognition of the utilities workforce which delivers the UK’s essential services.

The categories give companies the chance to celebrate teams and individuals who, in the past year have demonstrated outstanding commitment to their work, to customers and to society.

This year, Utility Week also plans to introduce an exciting new element to the awards scheme in order to highlight senior leaders, whose enthusiasm for mentoring and people development has gone above and beyond what might be expected. More news on this to come soon.

In an operating environment which is, for many utilities, challenging, volatile or even hostile, it is more important than ever to boost workforce morale and recognise the efforts or those who work tirelessly to keep gas and water flowing and the lights on.

Whether your team or colleague works on the front line of infrastructure delivery or in the back office providing customer service and data analysis, there is Stars category to put them in the spotlight.

Deadline for entry is 3 March.
