RISING STAR AWARD

The judges are looking to recognise the success of an outstanding individual who has made a positive contribution to the bottom line performance and overall loss prevention landscape within their place of work. The winner does not necessarily work full-time in profit protection. They might be from another discipline, but “really get” risk and as such has made a significant difference – either financially or culturally – within their place of work.
