cHeRries Awards 2014

The North-East’s HR Community Celebrated in style last night at the 7th Annual cHeRries Awards, recognising excellence in HR, Training & Recruitment.

The awards, organised by our very own cushydoos team, were held in the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, and attended by 640 of the region’s leading business professionals.

The night kicked off ‘Oscar-style’ with on-stage selfies and thereafter guests were encouraged to take their own snaps and share using #cherries14…you can see all the glam pictures here!

This year, the event was hosted by David Burnside, a leading figure in Employment Law and the recipient of the Top cHeRry Award in 2013. Later in the evening, guests were treated to music from popular Aberdeen band, 5th Avenue and the sparkly dance floor was filled until the event finished at 1am!

For all of you who were there, we hope you had a brilliant time, and a huge congratulations again to all our fantastic winners!:
