The One4all Spotlight Awards recognises the best employees across 19 different categories, including Employee of the Year awards for 13 industries, including customer service, hair & beauty, e-commerce retail, catering and property & construction being just some of the sectors recognised.
Erin Seabright, an integrated care staff nurse in Medicine & Community at Manchester Royal Infirmary, beat 18 other category winners to be crowned the overall Employee of the Year, following winning the Health & Social Care Employee of the Year Award: “I have been a medical nurse for three years in Manchester now and I feel very proud to have not only been named Health & Social Care Employee of the Year but also for winning the overall Employee of the Year Award.
“Working in healthcare often has its challenges day to day but I am passionate about my job and see myself working in this industry for many years to come.
Winning this award has highlighted many believe in my hard work. I am so grateful for this acknowledgement. Thank you to everyone that voted for me, it really means a lot”
The Judges thought that Erin was an exemplary employee who has supported colleagues and patients through emotionally and physically challenging times.
