The annual CIPD HR&D Awards recognises and celebrates outstanding HR&D achievements and success. This year, Connect, along with 3 other companies, have been short-listed for the SME HR&D Award, which acknowledges outstanding HR&D teams who have made a positive impact on their organisation. Our HR team submitted a strong response outlining Connect’s HR strategy and initiatives, the newly restructured HRD team and the positive impact that changes have had on the company. Our HR Director, Lisa Davidson said this of the award:
“I am delighted that the HR team are now seen as an integral part of the business, and are represented on the Board. Our HR strategy is aligned with the company business plan and our colleagues are more effectively supported with a specialist HR team. It’s been a real team effort and we are delighted to be shortlisted for the award.”
As well as being shortlisted for an award, Connect are also proud sponsors of the Health and Wellness Innovation Award, which recognises an organisation’s HR&D initiatives that improve health and wellness. The awards dinner will take place at the Marriott Hotel on 16th June, and we look forward to announcing the winner.
