Excitement is mounting as the ShelfLife National Grocery Management Awards draw ever closer – with this year’s winners set to be announced in a virtual ceremony broadcast live next week.
Led by MC Shay Byrne, with a special foreword by Simon Harris, Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, the awards ceremony will be broadcast live here on www.shelflife.ie on the afternoon of Thursday, 10 December.
Supported by platinum sponsor Bank of Ireland and carried out in association with Excel Recruitment, the National Grocery Management Awards is Ireland’s premier scheme for recognising and honouring management excellence.
This unique scheme is independently judged and seeks out best management practice among those who carry responsibility without ownership in the grocery retail sector.
The gala ceremony will be an opportunity to celebrate the hard-working retail managers who have shown tremendous dedication to their customers and colleagues during the outbreak of Covid-19.
“Now, more than ever,” said ShelfLife editor Gillian Hamill, “customers appreciate the efforts that retail managers and their staff go to in order to ensure they can continue to shop in a safe environment.
“This year’s ceremony will be a true celebration of the Herculean work carried out by retail managers to continue providing excellent customer service and look after the wellbeing of colleagues during the most challenging of times. The heroes of our industry who have gone above and beyond for customers, particularly the most vulnerable in our society, deserve to be recognized and celebrated more than ever and that is exactly what this year’s Grocery Management Awards will do.”
