For the past 13 years the Student Accommodation Awards have been at the centre of recognition and celebration of outstanding achievements in the Student Accommodation sector. Those nominated for the awards are truly the crème de la crème of the industry and have demonstrated significant contributions, not only to their colleagues and peers, but the entire sector.
This year, Student Living by Sodexo’s very own Georgia Hastie received highly commended for the 2020 Unsung Hero Award.
As Northumbria University’s Residency Living Coordinator, Georgia is on hand to help students with an aim to support them from Applicant to Alumni. Her role is pivotal in developing our Residency Living program to give students the support to succeed and the space to shine.
Georgia has proven herself time after time as a dedicated and passionate member of the team and is always eager to develop her personal skills and those of others.
The key work Georgia has delivered includes:
Creating and embedding campaigns to support the development of safety practices to maintain the site's zero Lost Time Incidents (LTI);
implementing a proactive approach to ensure students are fully supported with mental health and wellbeing support
being proactive in educating students on acceptable behaviours and conduct improving the overall student experience and customer satisfaction.
Delivering a culture of change and innovation to continually drive our offer forward
Alongside her day-to-day Georgia is also eager to learn. As an ambitious individual, Georgia is studying for a Masters in Events Management at Falmouth University as well as participating in Sodexo’s On-Site Management Academy supporting her drive to grow her skills in key areas including management behaviours and finances.
Throughout the ongoing global pandemic, Georgia has held her own and continues to develop key stakeholder relationships as well support her colleagues through this turbulent time.
In her award submission Georgia received multiple testimonials supporting her award nomination, including additions from members of Northumbria University’s Student Union and faculty team, teams at South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust, and of course her on-site colleagues.
Tom Martin, Head of Residency Living, commented on Georgia's success: “Since 2018, Georgia really has embodied the meaning of an Unsung Hero. In her career at Sodexo she has become a key member in developing and delivering our Residency Living Program making a big impact in a short space of time.
“Her confidence and drive helps us to work closely with stakeholders and clients to truly improve the quality of life for our student residents and her colleagues alike. Thank you, Georgia, for continually demonstrating all three of Sodexo’s core values, and congratulations on this fantastic recognition.”
This is great news and inspiring to see a Sodexo Hidden Hero receive the recognition they deserve – well done Georgia!
