At Entier we recognise the importance of motivating and rewarding our people for the consistently high quality service they deliver and we do this through our employee recognition scheme, ‘Shine’.
The Shine Programme is an integral part of recognising members of the Entier family who go above and beyond the call of duty and is key to embedding the Entier values across our business. As an organisation this benefits not only our staff but also our clients, as it fosters a culture of consistency to motivate and encourage excellence in everything we do.
Each quarter, staff, suppliers and clients alike are eligible to nominate individuals and teams within our business as ‘shining examples’.
All those nominated will receive a certificate with individual winners receiving £500 worth of vouchers and the winning team per quarter receiving £500 to donate to a charity of their choice. The annual winner of Employee of the Year, presented at our yearly awards ceremony receives £1000.

I was fortunate to win employee of the year for 2014 this was a tremendous honour and something I am proud to have achieved. Having initially won one of the quarterly shine I never expected it to go any further. On the night of shine 2015 when my name was read out I still couldn’t quite believe I had actually won it! I was absolutely delighted to have won overall and privileged to work for a company who rewards staff for their efforts. I received £1000.00 of holiday vouchers and 1 weeks extra annual leave for the year. What a great prize to win! Entier certainly give a lot back to employees and make you feel you are appreciated for all the effort that goes in. What made the night for me was also knowing my work colleagues had nominated me for this award.Jo Watson, Fresh Support Manager
The Shine Awards provide great recognition to employees throughout our sites who work hard all year, it’s also a great motivational tool. The fact employees nominate each other provides good team spirit. In my experience I won employee of the year in 2016 – and my prize gave me the opportunity of travelling to Thailand which was something I had always wanted to do.Vicky Smith, Logistics & Training Supervisor
A Company that treats and deals with its Suppliers in the same way as it does its Clients and Staff is a Company that I want to work with. Team Entier have always treated me and the team at Eyecandy in this way, and in doing so it has benefited both companies for the better. Keep Shining Team Entier you can all be winners and get the recognition you deserve.Adrian George, Eyecandy Graphics & Signs
Peter Bruce and his team have not just placed value in local suppliers but also in developing local staff. From the selection process for Fresh Olives, winning Best Employer at the Press & Journal Gold Awards through to monumental achievements such as being honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise the success of Entier sets a hugely impressive standard and serves as motivation to business owners like me! To the entire Entier team – thank you. Your dedication to delivering quality, value and friendly service to each and every one of your clients and customers is something to be rightly proud of. From cups of coffee through to bowls of Cullen Skink, take great satisfaction in knowing that you play a part in supporting other local businesses and the local economy. Well done!Findlay Leask, Caber Coffee
I was really surprised to win the overall shine award it was a real shock, I didn't expect it, I was very proud and happy, and even happier to know how much my work was apricated. I really enjoy working for a company that rewards its staff so generously. With the 500-pound voucher I purchased a go pro camera which I use all the time, and with the holiday vouchers I have booked a week in Ibiza that I cannot wait for! So thank youZseraldina Szabo, Kitchen Porter, Westhill
It's fantastic to be awarded employee of the year. My hard work has paid off and with all supports from the Entier family my efforts have not gone unnoticed. I received one-week extra holiday pay and £1,500 toward holiday destination of my choice.
Feeling awesome and would like to encourage any one to work hard and love what they do... This could be you next year.
