Bring your best game

The Hire Excellence Awards provide a platform for assessing, recognising and rewarding excellence of Hire companies who operate within the various industry sectors we have.

Areas of focus include presentation of premises & staff, security, product & services, marketing, customer service, adherence to industry standards, H&SE, policies, compliance and overall operational efficiencies. Judging includes desktop, onsite visit and mystery shopper.

This year we are using a new mix of Judges that know our industry well and have served it. “For Industry, by Industry”

If you believe your team has what it takes, give it a go!

2021 awards are now open.
