From revenues and benefits teams of the year to excellence in innovation, our customers are leading the way.
After a year of virtual working, finally the IRRV Annual Conference and Gala Dinner was back – and what a week it was! IRRV is the professional body for revenues and benefits . Each year they host a conference, exhibition, and awards dinner to celebrate the inspiring achievements of different authorities across the country. NEC Revenues and Benefits customers consistently perform well, and this year was no different.
We’re always proud of our customers and what they achieve. We were elated to see the speed of processing stats that were released earlier this year. And they’ve continued to outperform themselves at the IRRV awards. NEC customers took home 7 of the 10 awards of the night! It’s brilliant to see their hard work being recognised and even more special to be able to raise a glass with them in celebration.
The first set of categories our customers excelled in were the Excellence Awards. For Excellence in Innovation (Service Delivery) we were delighted to see the success of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Immediately following that, Salford City Council were commended for their Excellence in Innovation (Technology) award. For Excellence in Education & Staff Development, Folkestone & Hythe District Council were recognised for the amazing work they have done.
The second category of IRRV awards was Team of the Year. It was absolutely amazing to see our customers take home both Revenues Team of the Year and Benefits & Welfare Reform Team of the Year. An incredible well done to Walsall Council for deservedly taking home the revenues title! And an equally wonderful congratulations to Dumfries & Galloway Council for winning the benefits title. The win was made even better because our own Nigel Blair, Head of Strategy, had the privilege of awarding that title on the night!
There were also a few awards our customers won in partnership with other authorities. In the category of Excellence in Partnership Working we celebrated the victory of our customer Reigate & Banstead for their fantastic work with Oxford City Council. Our services team already work closely alongside both Reigate & Banstead and Oxford in the delivery of empty property reviews so we’re absolutely delighted for them both. The final category we celebrated this year is Excellence in Innovation (Operational). We applauded the success of our customer Walsall Council (for their second award of the night) in partnership with Lewes and Eastbourne Councils. A massive congratulations to all of the very worthy winners!
We look forward to returning next year, as our customers continue to lead the way in innovation and excellence!
