We’ve been shortlisted for a national people and culture award
We’re thrilled to share the exciting news that we have reached the final in the Retail Company of the Year category of the British HR Awards that celebrate the organisations and individuals that are driven by delivering a world-class people experience.
“This is the first time that we have entered a national people and culture award and we’re very proud to have reached the final in the face of such strong competition,” said our Head of People and Culture, Neil Barwise-Carr.
Nate Harwood, founder of New Possible and British HR Awards judge said: ” With over 220 entries received from organisations all across the UK, from start-up innovators to public sector heroes, tech superstars, global titans and everything in between, competition proved to be especially tough.
“This year saw 125% more entries than last year making judging a real challenge but also a great privilege. Congratulations to all the finalists who are flying the flag for the HR profession and having a positive impact on the working lives of so many people.”
The lineup of nine judges includes representatives from Shelter, Monzo, Apple and Iceland Foods.
In an all-Yorkshire final, Tong Garden Centre faces competition from Hull-based Heron Foods. The winners will be announced at a celebration event in Central London on Wednesday 22nd March.
Wish us luck!
