The accolades include the People Development Award, which went to Healthcare Retail Operations Director, Andrew Jones and the Innovation Award that went to Marketing Executive, Sasha Gupta.

The 2014 FSM Awards took place at the Lancaster Hotel, London and saw over 400 of the catering and food service elite gather to celebrate individuals and organisations who are leading the way in the industry.

The People Development Award recognised Healthcare Operations Director, Andrew Jones, for making excellent progress in developing a team and demonstrating top level employee engagement, training programmes and team initiatives. The award acknowledged Andrew’s work in developing the ‘Grow Your Own’ programme, with an emphasis on learning new skills, on the job training, e-learning, coaching, mentoring and nurturing new talent.

The Innovation Award went to Sasha Gupta, Marketing Executive for Compass Group UK & Ireland. The accolade recognises an individual who has introduced a new concept, product or service that has helped contribute to the highest standard of catering. Sasha was credited for delivering Compass’ The Idea Works! initiative - the campaign sees new products and services pitched to a panel of judges, with the opportunity of becoming a supplier to Compass. This award was voted for by guests on the night, as well as judges selecting the shortlisted finalists.

Andrew Jones, Healthcare Operations Director commented: “We’ve invested in developing our team and believe the ‘Grow Your Own’ programme has worked in delivering engagement and training. This award is recognition for the talent we have and is testament to the strong team we have built.”   

Sasha Gupta, Marketing Executive for Compass Group UK & Ireland said: “The Idea Works! is a fantastic initiative that offers SMEs with great ideas the opportunity to get their products or services used by a world-leading food and support services provider. The concept itself is innovative, but it also allows original and new products to enter the industry.”
