Awards and recognition
We don’t do it for the awards, but it’s always nice to be recognised for the work we do. Here are some of our most recent awards.
The awards are celebration of the very best in people management, wellbeing, apprenticeships and individual success.
The judges are looking for businesses that have made a significant contribution to the development and retention of their female workforce whilst inspiring the next female generation.
The prestigious annual awards recognise the region’s best dealmakers over the period, and the judges have recognised our efforts by shortlisting us 14 times across seven categories.
Awarded to a business that has performed exceptionally, either in commercial terms, innovation, impact or customer service.
This award recognises a business with a focus on developing talent through training, apprenticeships, work experience, diversity and inclusion, career progression and opening up opportunities to all.
The ‘Community Business of the Year’ award which recognises organisations that facilitate, participate and enable community engagement, was given for our community work, including our grant giving through The Muckle Fund at The Community Foundation.
The awards aim to raise the profile of the HR&D profession across the region and celebrate the value that HR&D can deliver in improving work and working lives.
We were recognised for our successful development programmes, with the judges praising us for our strategic approach, use of local experts and delivery of top-class, measurable results.
We were commended for working on some of the North East’s largest real estate transactions over the last 12 months.
The judges were highly impressed with our real estate finance team which offers bespoke separate lending solutions to banks operating within the rural property sector.
