Pride of Centra 2016

In 2014 we launched our brand new Pride of Centra Awards.  The highly successful event was held in Croke Park and showcased at Centra Conference 2015. These awards honour Centra employees throughout Ireland for their commitment and dedication in working with the Centra brand and are open to all employees regardless of their length of service with the store. Stores can also nominate as many employees as they wish for these awards. The “Pride of Centra” are those employees that consistently live and demonstrate the Centra brand values on a daily basis.

In Centra, we are extremely proud of the success of our brand.  However, we also know that it is the enthusiasm, hard work and dedication of our people in serving our customers each and every day that has made us a success through the years.  With these awards we wish to capture the essence of what our people mean to us and honour our most valuable assets.

If a Retailer wishes to nominate an employee from their store for a “Pride Of Centra” Award, then they must complete the below nomination form enclosing evidence to demonstrate why the nominated employee is worthy of the award.  The nomination process will open from 16th May 2016 and close on 30th September 2016. Nominations will be reviewed and finalists will be contacted by a member of the Musgrave HR Team in October 2016.  All finalists will be interviewed by an adjudicator and the Overall Winner will be announced at the “Pride Of Centra Award” event which will be held in November 2016. (Venue TBC).
