The award that recognises and celebrates exceptional front of house receptionists working in the corporate sector is open for entries
For many years there have been awards to recognise front of house staff working in hotels.
However, with more and more of these outstanding individuals moving over to the corporate world, attracted by higher salaries, a better work-life balance and the opportunity to build a rewarding career in some of the most fantastic organisations in the world, it as the right time to create an opportunity to recognise and celebrate these talented people.
This has led to the launch of this new award for Corporate Receptionist of the Year.
The competition is open to any receptionist working in a corporate organisation, whether directly for that organisation or through a third-party contractor service provider.
Entries are limited to just one application per corporate organisation and each application must be endorsed by the reception manager, front of house manager or facilities manager.
The competition is open to front-line employees, not supervisors, managers or more senior personnel. More details about the competition can be found on the official website.
As well as the trophy and title of Corporate Receptionist of the Year, the winner will receive the following prizes, to be presented at an awards event on International Receptionists' Day, Wednesday 8th May:
NEW YORK TRIP
