THURSDAY 30 JUNE @ 14.00 – 16.00

Following on from a hugely successful campaign in 2021, ECR Ireland will once again salute the standout heroes across the Irish grocery sector who deserve to be celebrated for their contribution to the industry.
The goal of the ECR Heroes Awards is to hero the workers across all departments and functions who have delivered time and time again and honour them at a hybrid awards ceremony on Thursday June 30th 2022.
These people & departments always go the extra mile and deserve to be acknowledged for their efforts to ensure that their hard work and dedication is rewarded.
Categories include Heroes in the Community, for shoppers, for service or in the workplace – these heroes may have made a difference in their own community through a workplace initiative or may consistently go above and beyond when it comes to looking after customers or event their own colleagues. NEW for 2022 is the Heroes for the Planet award which will recognise any person, department or team who have strived to make a difference in terms of protecting the planet.
15 nominations have been shortlisted as finalists for the ECR Heroes Awards 2022.
All finalists will receive an ECR Heroes Commendation Certificate.
Overall & Category winners will also receive a trophy + voucher.
All finalists for ECR Heroes will attend the Awards at the Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge.
A short video outlining each nomination will be played during the Awards.
An ECR Judging Panel will select Category & Overall Award Winners.
The event will be streamed LIVE so please feel free to register and watch the event.
(Please note – a stationary cam will record proceedings)
