The Homie Awards 2020
This year has been tough. Really tough. But we are tougher.
To recognise and celebrate all the big, small, normal and extraordinary ways that Homies have pulled together and contributed to the efforts of the Home Group this year, we decided to hold the first ever Homie Awards…
The Homie Awards 2020 features 14 awards across four categories: More Than Me, Courage Over Comfort and Creative Spirit are all centered around our values, whilst A Bit of a Chuckle does what it says on the tin!
After one intense week of voting, the counts were tallied and we all got together over Teams to celebrate our finalists. So, without further ado, let’s hear it for our first Homie Awards winners!
More Than Me
Quick hello hero: Suzy Thomas
Awarded to someone who’s consistently made sure to check in on their fellow Homies or brighten days with quick chats.
The glass filler: Paula Marcantonio
Awarded to someone who’s always thinking positively, helping their team to turn a situation around – from a glass half empty mood to a glass half full mood.

Awarded to someone whose everyday management behind the scenes might usually go unnoticed, but has made everyone else’s jobs so much easier, and projects run smoother.
Courage Over Comfort
The Real Talker: Liv Hehir
Awarded to someone who’s not sat back in silence, but has spoken up for what they believe in.

Felt the fear. Did it anyway: Shannon Caulfield
Awarded to someone who pushed themselves out of their comfort zone in a big way.
Covid Chameleon: Sarah Williamson
Awarded to someone who’s adapted to 2020 especially well. They’ve come up with a creative solution to a challenge posed by the pandemic, found a new way to do an element of their role virtually, or just settled into working from home like a boss.
