The first win was the Award for Excellence in Employee Engagement for our ‘Be the Change’ programme - given to an organisation that has significantly enhanced patient care through improved staff engagement.
The second award went to the Assistant Director of HR, Lucy Purdy in the Guardian Jobs ‘Rising Star category, which aims to recognise up-and-coming HR practitioners that are set for a bright future.
Lucy was nominated for this category by our Director of Workforce Transformation and Human Resources, Louise McKenzie, who commented, “Huge congratulations to Lucy on winning this award. It is easy to underestimate what a powerhouse Lucy is. Although softly spoken and unassuming, her personal impact and the contribution to our Trust in nine months is incredible.”
Louise continued to say, “I am overjoyed with our success at this year’s awards ceremony. I am so proud of our ‘Be the Change’ programme, how far it has spread and imbedded itself into the Trust, the huge improvements we continue to make every day which make a difference to our patients, and ultimately improve our staffs’ experience of working at ASPH.”
