Winners of Excellence in Employee Engagement Award
Back in July 2015, C&C had been shortlisted as finalist for the Excellence in Employee Engagement Award (less than 1000 employees). The entry submission was based on the rolling out of the C&C Behaviours, the work of Singspiration, our C&C choir, and a number of Learning projects such as the Inspirational Development Grants, Staff Roadshow and Managers Conference.
In November, the Learning Team attended the Personnel Today Awards at the Grosvenor Hotel. We were up against Chelmsford City Council, Kadence International, Origin Housing, and Queen’s Cross Housing Association.
Despite the heavy competition, we are delighted to announce that C&C won! The award was presented by the TV presenter Claudia Winkleman and the Chief Executive from Great Places to Work, who sponsored the award.
The judges’ summary comment on the submission was powerful: “Excellent articulation of the business case for aligning the employee engagement strategy with organisational and brand values. Clear evidence base and measurement of impact mingled with wonderful personal stories.”
With achieving Investors in People Silver Accreditation and winning the Personnel Today Award we are proud that C&C is being recognised externally, and that its strategies for engaging employees are commended by professional bodies and experts in the field.
