Judges offer advice on acing People in Retail awards nominations
Not long now to get your award winning entries for the People in Retail Awards in!
With this in mind, we talk to our judging panel for some thoughts about entering the awards and top tips on acing those 2023 submissions:
First things first, Krisi Smith suggests that you “Play to your strengths and choose the entry type (written submission or video entry) that you feel most confident with.”
We know that awards drive even further improvement in businesses so as Aaron Chatterley points out “Don’t be shy about celebrating your achievements.
Articulate your nomination clearly is the message from Azmat Ali who said “I’m a data person. Be sure to outline the facts within your entry clearly and where possible, include numbers. Having said that, your ability to recruit people in driving your vision is equally as important. It is pertinent to mention that data is influenced by actions which come from people.”
And Glynn Davis agrees: “It’s a good idea to try and highlight what has been achieved over the past 12 months and give as much evidence, metrics, as possible that clearly show what has been delivered. Paint a picture of standout success.”
“Make sure you include answers with evidence for all of the criteria outlined in the award category.” suggests Krisi
“Focus on the benefits that you are bringing to your customers, and just be yourselves!” commented Ken Daly.
What we love about The People in Retail awards are that they focus on the positives and send employees a clear message that what they’re doing really matters.
Vishal Talreja added: “For any individual, simply being nominated by their company to these awards is a huge accolade. This will surely inspire them and others within the company to continue to thrive for excellence.”
“Companies and individuals need to show a passion for their business and a strong desire to create something unique, to show that they have a deep understanding of their customer and provide them with an experience or memory they will treasure. Companies who can rise to a challenge and overcome.” said Melanie Taylor.
Krisi continued: “Showing is important too so don’t forget to include images. Have some fun with it as well and let your passion show through. There is an option to submit a video entry which is brilliant.”
