On a daily basis East Ayrshire Council employees are working round the clock for the benefit of individuals and communities.
The Council is hosting an Excellence Awards Ceremony this November to celebrate the significant contribution our employees make to the lives of others.
There will be eight awards on the night and the Council is seeking nominations, from the people of East Ayrshire, for the Council Leader’s Award for Excellence in Customer Service.
Councillor Douglas Reid, Leader of the Council said: “The Council is here to serve the public and it is the public who are best placed to assess whether or not the service they receive meets their expectations. We are seeking nominations for employees who have made a real difference to local people.
“The last winner in this category was the Community Health Care team from Cumnock. I was really touched by the nominations I received for this team. They provide life changing services to older and vulnerable people. One submission read: ‘Until you need their services, you don’t realise how essential they are to the wellbeing of your loved ones.’ This really struck a chord with me and I was delighted to present my award to the team.
“I am looking forward to receiving this year’s nominations and I am sure that I will have a really tough task on my hands once again when the time comes to choose a winner!”
