A unique celebration joined by employees across the globe.

Version 1’s Excellence Awards is an annual employee celebration and recognition event. This year we have over 200 submissions across 10 categories. These include both individual and team awards, ranging from public sector projects to ESG contributions.

At Version 1 we believe that a spirit of excellence is driven by a commitment to our core values, our dedication to innovation and creativity, and our drive to be effective in everything we deliver. This is underscored by a pledge that we will always be easy to do business with and work collaboratively with our customers by listening and acting.

The Excellence Awards also provide an opportunity for employees to meet each other in person at their local offices or tune-in remotely to join the celebrations. It is a day where we celebrate and recognise the hard work and dedication  of our colleagues and kick-off a new year with excellence and innovation in mind.
