Named after Joseph Chamberlain, one of Birmingham’s most respected civic leaders, the Chamberlain awards scheme is designed to reward Birmingham City Council (BCC) workers who go the extra mile to ensure that the people of Birmingham receive quality services.
Joseph Chamberlain was a gifted innovator who became Mayor of Birmingham in 1873, he put in place a series of reforms that revolutionised how local government provide and deliver services, including the development of water-works and gas-works. At BCC, we believe that all our citizens deserve the best services and that Birmingham should continue to be one of the best places in which to live, work and relax.
A simple ‘thankyou’ is personally rewarding, makes us feel valued and that our contribution is important. The Chamberlain Awards also fits in with our Human Resources strategies to raise performance, increase motivation and share best practice so that we can have one of the best performing local authorities in the UK."
The 18th century French philosopher Voltaire understood the importance of recognition when he said:
'Appreciation is a wonderful thing; it makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.'
