International courier price comparison site ParcelHero is calling for people to reveal those who inspire them in business.
The firm is inviting nominations for its Everyday Business Heroes Awards 2015, in which one lucky winner will land a dream holiday to the destination of their choice.
It says it wants to discover heroes and heroines from all kinds of businesses, both large and small, from multinationals to start-ups.
Head of public relations David Jinks said: “Heroes and heroines walk amongst us unnoticed every day – selfless, giving and 100% genuine.
“Whether they’re helping friends, family, or are a star in your workplace, often they will ask for no recognition and seek no reward.
“Here at ParcelHero, we want to help people give something back to their Everyday Heroes and reward the good deeds they perform.
“Everybody knows a hero. Just because he or she doesn’t wear a cape, don a mask or have a chest full of medals doesn’t make them any less special.
“Those business colleagues who always go that little bit further for you, act as an inspiration to others or mentor the next generation often go unrewarded.
“From the boss that leads from the front to the quiet PA who actually keeps the company going, ParcelHero wants to help recognise the heroes and heroines in your business and give them something back.
“All they need is your nomination for a chance to win. Get your vote in soon, as submissions close on November 22, 2015, after which our panel of judges will pick a winner from each category who deserves our heroic experience day.
“Anyone over 18 can be nominated for the Business Heroes category, and everyone also has the chance to pick an overall winner of the People’s Hero award, where the entry with the most votes from our Business, Local Community, Volunteer or Sporting Heroes categories will be named the winner. All entries will have the option to be included in the People’s Heroes nominations, along with their main category.
“It couldn’t be easier to nominate someone you admire. Simply fill out the form on ParcelHero’s Everyday Hero site, and your own particular hero or heroine could be a winner!”
Winners will receive a pair of flights to the holiday destination of their choice or a selection of pampering experience days.
