Organisations in the local government sector are being urged to enter the Investors in People (UK) National Awards ...
Organisations in the local government sector are being urged to enter the Investors in People (UK) National Awards 1997 as the deadline for entries (7th November) approaches.

In their second year, the number of awards have been increased considerably, now featuring five distinct awards. Each of the categories will acknowledge excellence by recognised companies, and individuals, working with the Investors in People Standard.

Three new awards this year are the Key Champion's Award, the Innovator's Award and an Award for Outstanding Practice. These will sit alongside the two existing awards for Key Crusaders and Outstanding Partners.

The Award for Outstanding Practice has been designed especially to give extra recognition to the cream of the country's investors in people. The Innovators Award is especially for unusual methods of boosting business performance which have arisen through using the Investors in People framework.

This year's award ceremony will be held on Tuesday 2nd December, starting with a champagne reception at 7.00pm and ending at approximately 10.45pm. The venue is Plaisterers Hall, No.1 London Wall, City of London.

The ceremony will be preceded on the same day by a National Network Event at the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Moorgate. The theme of the event, 'Investment in the Community', will give guests and delegates the opportunity to mix and share best practice with others interested in and involved with Investors in People in all business sectors, including local government.

National Accounts Manager, Lorina Pilgrim at Investors in People (UK) comments: 'With both internal and external customer service increasingly key for the local government sector, what better way to champion your own efforts and progression in this field, than to win an award for excellence and innovation in the management of your people - the vital element to delivering high-level customer satisfaction.

'Recruitment, staff retention, motivation and the supply chain all can and do benefit significantly from successful integration of Investors in People.'

Being short-listed for this year's awards can only help increase your business profile, and entry forms can be obtained from Mike Kopko at Investors in People (UK) on 0171 467 1900.
