Gregory Burke from AccessAble, nominated for the happiest employee award

Nominations for this year's National Happiness Awards opened at the beginning of June. After the success of last year awards, there has been a sharp increase in early nominations, particularly from people who are clients and customers of the workplaces they are nominating.

One in particular that caught the beady eye of our very own Laughology awards guru, Steph W, was submitted by Dennis Markey, who has nominated Gregory Burke, a barrister, in the Happiest Employee category of the awards.

Dennis says in his nomination that, 'Gregory is a barrister who set up a not for profit organisation called AccessAble, as a result of his own experiences as a wheelchair user and disabled walker. He was frustrated to find the best-case scenario when he looked for accessibility information was a few unhelpful words that only resulted in more uncertainty. Not having the information he needed meant everything had to be planned and that too often going out became a stressful and anxious experience.'

He goes on to say, 'Gregory has given so many people that don't know him the opportunity to have the chance to laugh and enjoy a day out with their friends and family'.

Like Dennis, you don't have to work for an organisation to nominate them for an award. If you know a business, organisation or school that has happiness in its DNA, then pop over to the awards page and hit the nominate button and tell us all about them. Happy nominating!
