The Entier Shine Awards 2019 Ceremony

Shine Crew1

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’. We celebrate our shining stars by nominating individuals and teams from across the business who truly harness 'the Entier way' and have played their part in ensuring success.

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.

The Winners say...

"I was very surprised to be shortlisted for employee of the year 2020 but to actually win it just blew me away. This award doesn't just belong to me though but the whole team from the chefs & stewards on the Seaway Aimery through to the amazing support we get from the whole office in Aberdeen. Obviously with the lockdown there was no awards ceremony but Peter Bruce, Scott Jackson and Mark Pollock got together to ensure I had an unforgettable day. The prize of holiday vouchers had already been decided on, putting towards a ski holiday in France next winter, something we have been promising our children for a few years now. A weeks extra annual leave, a very nice bottle of champagne and huge bouquet of flowers as well just left me stunned."


"I was privileged to win Employee of The Year for 2019 at the amazing Annual Shine awards ceremony held at the prestigious Gleneagles Hotel. I am proud to have achieved this award it was a tremendous honor, Having only been with the company just over a year. I initially won one of the quarterly shine awards which I never expected it to lead to winning Employee of the Year. I have never worked for a company who rewards staff for their efforts as much as Entier. I received £1500.00 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 your hard work."


"I was surprised and delighted to receive the award of Employee of the Year 2018. What an exceptional honoured to receive such an important award. I am sincerely grateful for the recognition I have received for my work because I am very sure that every other nominee for this award was as capable if not more, of winning this award.

Winning Employee of the Year award would not have been possible without the inspiration from my management at all levels, customers and my colleagues, for whom I have the deepest respect, and from whom I have derived the strength to challenge myself and perform better at each stage.I have been working for Entier for 8 years and have never once doubted the leadership team or the direction of this company.I am proud of working for Entier because the company is people-focused, we are treated as family, not the employees. Leaders treat us as equals and stay true to their word. I feel so fortunate to work at a company where employees are treated so well.

Holiday vouchers and an additional week annual leave, which were part of the award, allowed me to spend an amazing and unforgettable time in Italy.

I will be forever grateful!"


"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."

"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 you!"
