Search Is on for Our Best Performers


THE search is on to find the best companies to work for in the North East and highlight those employees that have gone the extra mile for their bosses.

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development have teamed up with The Journal to recognise the region's top employees and companies.

The North East Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development HR awards celebrate those people who have worked above and beyond the call of duty in recruitment and training.

The CIPD Excellence in Developing People Award recognises businesses and organisations that utilise effective training and development strategies that have an impact on overall performance.

It all culminates in a ceremony at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead on April 18, 2013. And this year the awards are in association once again with Nigel Wright Recruitment.

There are eight awards, with each category sponsored by a well-known organisation including Northumbrian Water, Cintra HR & Payroll Services, Ward Hadaway, Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service, Newcastle University Business School and Home Group. Catherine Attwell, chair of CIPD North East of England Branch said: "These are the region's most prestigious HR&D Awards. Delivered in association with The Journal and associate sponsor Nigel Wright, the awards recognise and celebrate outstanding HR&D achievements and impact on business success.

"Our awards aim to inspire future generations of the great North East. This year there will be a double celebration as we approach the CIPD centenary recognising 100 years of leading HR into the future and celebrating the very best that human resources and development has to offer in the region."

Event organisers expect the gala event to be better than ever this time and attract over 370 people to cheer on the winners. They are already taking bookings for tables.

Details of how to enter will be available each Thursday in The Journal until March 13, which is the closing date for entries.

SME Excellence in HR&D Award ASSOCIATE SPONSOR: NIGEL WRIGHT INSTEAD of focusing on high salaries and lucrative bonuses, we're seeing the emergence of a workforce that is driven by the need for personal success, recognition of their achievements and a quality of life that meets their values and social needs.

Time and again candidates tell us they want to work for employers that are interested in their future development. This is particularly the case with younger candidates. They're hitting the employment market and asking potential employers, "What are you going to do for me?" Many businesses have been forced to streamline their workforce to counteract tough economic conditions. What we're seeing now is that the talent remaining in those businesses is usually that which is critical to the organisation's overriding success. It becomes increasingly important therefore, for HR to develop these 'essential' individuals and make certain they are motivated and challenged in their day-to-day work.
