The Utility Week awards

The Utility Week Awards are the gold standard of achievement for water and energy companies, rewarding and celebrating outstanding performance and innovation.

The South Staffs Water community hub has been shortlisted as a finalist in two categories; ‘Community Initiative of the Year’ and ‘The Customer Care Award’.

The ‘Community Initiative of the Year’ recognises an initiative, which makes a significant contribution to communities and benefits the recipients far more than the company.

The ‘Customer Care’ category recognises utility companies who demonstrate a true understanding of their customers’ wants and needs, as well as a genuine commitment to delivering against them.

The awards ceremony takes place on December 9th 2019, in London.
