Fortel announced as the sponsors of this year's Personal Impact Medals

Leading Industry recruitment organisation announced as the sponsors of Personal Impact Medals at this year's event.

Fortel, the largest supplier of agency labour to the UK construction industry, have been announced as the sponsors of the Personal Impact Medals at this year's Highways Heroes Awards.

Providing contractors with pre-briefed, compliant teams formed of trusted and skilled workers for construction and key infrastructure projects Fortel have become established as a go-to for leading contractors seeking labour for major projects.

The prestigious awards which are presented to individuals whose selfless actions have made a personal impact to members of society have become one of the most prestigious parts of the ceremony and are the only award which recognises multiple people for their selfless actions.

Previous winners have been given this blue ribbon award for selfless actions such as putting themselves at risk of personal harm to prevent others from attempting to take their own lives and other acts of courage.

The Personal Impact medals are one of the highlights of the annual ceremony and are presented as part of the climax of the gala ceremony.

Recognising the heroic actions of individuals who have coped admirably in the face of adversity, the awards place at the Grand Connaught Rooms, on 30th November, the awards recognise those who have gone above and beyond their duty, to help someone or improve a situation, either in the communities they work in or to unconditionally support fellow workers in their team.

Speaking about the partnership with Arcadis and their sponsorship of the personal impact medals, Kevin Robinson, Co-founder of the awards said,

"The support for the Highways Heroes Awards from Arcadis is a testament to how far this ceremony has come in its relatively short journey.

"From concept to smashing the norm around the usual corporate awards to something which focussed on those we put to work and celebrating our unsung heroes the awards have cemented their place in the hearts of our sector.

"To see organisations such as Fortel truly embodying this is a humbling experience and I give my personal thanks for their commitment ."

Fortel will become one of a selected number of blue ribbon gold sponsors of the event alongside Arcadis, Balfour Beatty, Keltbray, Octavius Infrastructure and Bam and the medals on the evening will be presented by Sat Nijjer, Owner and Chief Executive of the organisation and Amar Sandhawalia, the company's Chief Operating Officer.
