Congratulations to our HR and People Team who were last night proclaimed HR Team of the Year in the public sector/third sector at the annual CIPD People Awards.
This award recognises HR teams that have demonstrated excellence across their organisation to achieve business success. Applicants were judged on their innovation, exceptional teamwork; a strategic approach to all aspects of their work; and a quantifiable contribution to the organisation's success.
The award was presented at a ceremony in London which many of the team attended to celebrate their success. Our team beat a large number of applicants from across the country to win the award.
Mandy Coalter, our Director of People who received the award on behalf of the team said:
"I am so pleased that our team's work has been recognised by this award. It is important and significant that the CIPD realises the crucial role that successful people management, training and development plays in delivering organisational success.
"All of our team work incredibly hard and are held in respect by all our schools. We are all driven by the desire to support each of our schools in delivering excellent education to our students by ensuring that every aspect of our staff's professional lives are well catered for and handled efficiently"
"To receive this award is excellent external validation of what we are seeking to achieve in our work. It goes hand in hand with our award we received earlier this year for Employee Engagement and reflects the responsibility and priority that United Learning places on looking after and developing our people."
