The ABSL Diamonds Awards are national awards recognising excellence and innovation in Poland’s business services sector. Tate & Lyle’s GSS team in Łódź, consisting of over 300 employees providing financial transactional activities and other services to Tate & Lyle’s business across the world, has been shortlisted in two categories:

Activities include employees organising cooking workshops, picnics and fundraisers for children at a local orphanage, running craft workshops for local children (pictured), collecting feed and accessories for a local animal shelter, and donating gifts to a local hospital.
