BAS Energy – Proud Supporter of Vertas Making the Difference Staff Awards 2017

BAS Energy, having developed a partnership with Vertas Global Limited last year, were delighted to celebrate Verta’s Making the Difference Staff Awards 2017 this month. Our partnership began after securing the contract to manage the entire energy (electricity and gas) portfolio for Suffolk Country Council’s procurement framework for a minimum of 3 years last September. We continue to work closely with Vertas and were thrilled to join them in their celebration to honour the commitment and excellence of Vertas employees.

The award ceremony which was held at the Sir Bobby Robson Suite at Ipswich Town Football Club, was attended by 160 guests. We would like to congratulate all of the 2017 winners, including Jenny Love who won the Customer 1st award which was proudly sponsored by BAS Energy. Commenting on the Award, Andy Blake, BAS Energy’s Commercial Director said, “What makes these awards so special is that they reward the Staff members for their focus on positive customer experiences, which is embedded in the ethos at BAS Energy.”
