Last week we held our 2022 staff awards as part of our Christmas celebrations. These annual awards honour the hard work and commitment from the Travel Places team to deliver for our customers, to help assist and develop their colleagues, and to support our work in the community.
We are always incredibly proud of the Travel Places team, but we are particularly impressed with how they have all risen to the challenges of the last two years. With 2022 being a hugely busy year for us, commitment, expertise and team spirit has never been more important. This year’s awards show our team have displayed all of these in abundance.
We are delighted to announce our 2022 winners. Well done to all!
