Compass Associates wins five CRS Core Value Awards 2022


At the end of each financial year, Compass presents our internal Core Value Awards. Nominations for these awards are open to all employees within all CRS brands. This year, five out of the seven Core Values Award categories were won by people within the Compass Associates teams for their contributions to each of their respective divisions over the past year.

2022 has seen us able to present these awards at the CRS End of Year conference after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

What are the Compass Core Value Awards?

The Core Value Awards are based on our brand values and are presented to employees of all Compass brands, based on nominations from employees and recognition for their overall performance. The  Senior Leadership Team then meet to determine the winners of our Core Values Awards.
