Staff Awards

Recognising the talents and tremendous contribution made by colleagues to the success of Ixion is something we like to shout about. November saw our annual Staff awards with nominees attending an awards event at Anglia Ruskin University to celebrate their success.

The day was a real celebration and showcased the diverse talents of the Ixion team. John Govett (Group Chief Executive) said: “I would like to thank all of you who took the time to vote for your colleagues. Congratulations to everyone that was nominated, short-listed and to the overall winners. Special thanks to everyone else in Ixion who continues to work hard to make Ixion such a great place to work.”
