How many employees may I nominate from my organisation?

If we receive more than three employee Nominations from the same organisation, we will contact the organisation and ask them to withdraw one or more Nominations so three are received. These three Nominations are then brought forward for consideration. You may nominate any number of individuals outside of your organisation.
