The end of the season not only marked another achievement in Fulham sealing Barclays Premier League football for a 13th consecutive campaign, it also allowed the Club to recognise and applaud the efforts of many of our frontline staff for the hard work and dedication shown throughout 2012/13.
The Celebrating Excellence awards highlighted the invaluable work carried out off the pitch by many individuals and teams on matchdays. Normally, the only face-to-face contact many people will have with the Club, they help to create a welcoming experience for fans and visitors to our historic home, Craven Cottage.
Fulham FC engages hundreds of staff on matchdays working in catering, stewarding, hospitality, retail, ticketing and medical and more than 250 people attended the Celebrating Excellence awards at the end of May.
Fulham Football Club People Development Director, Robert Ordever, said: "Each season, we expect even more from our matchday teams. We want the matchday experience to be closer and more personal and our people can make that difference. Recognising and rewarding those who live the Club Values and exceed supporter expectations, is an important priority. This event celebrates the best of the best, from a pool of more than 1,000 matchday staff, we give just 15 awards. Staff are nominated by their Managers and peers and a panel from around the Club deliberate to ensure that the shortlist and the winners are Fulham's finest."
There were 15 categories in all, five of which were linked to each of the Club’s five values. Congratulations to the winners who all received an award, a certificate signed by Vice Chairman, Karim Fayed, and some wonderful prizes. Congratulations to all of the people that were nominated for an award too.
Fulham Football Club would like to thank the suppliers and partners that supported this event and we look forward to having even more to celebrate this time next year.
