Coloplast, a manufacturer of products and services for people with intimate healthcare needs, was selected by a panel of judges as the winner in the Customer Service and Employer of the Year categories and was also a finalist for the Large Business of the Year award. In addition, Coloplast’s General Manager, Annemarie van Neck was awarded Business Person of the Year.
Attending the ceremony to accept the awards, Coloplast’s HR Director Ruth Hutchinson said “We are extremely proud to have been nominated and to have won these accolades. They acknowledge the hard work and team spirit that we have as an organisation and business.
“Our staff are incredibly committed and this is the result of the can-do attitude each of us has in our service to our customers – whether they are the patients themselves, clinical staff, the NHS or other businesses. We are a lead employer in the Peterborough area and we intend to continue to invest and grow. We are always looking for talent so please keep a close eye out for opportunities with us.”
Annemarie said “I am truly humbled to have won this marvellous award and I couldn’t have done it without the support of Coloplast and all my colleagues who work tirelessly to ensure that the people who use our products and services are beyond satisfied.
