Award Winners

EElogoWe are delighted that the University has been named as a winner at both the HR Distinction Awards 2016 and the Employee Engagement Awards 2015.

We received the HR Distinction Award in Wellbeing at a ceremony held on 3 February 2016, which recognised the capacity of our award winning Juice Everyday Health and Wellbeing offer to promote wellness and enhance performance amongst employees.

In addition, we have received 2 recognitions at the Employee Engagement Awards 2015; Winner of the Project of the Year Award (Not for Profit/Charity) for our Staff Survey 2014, and Highly Commended for Employee Engagement Company of the Year. The Employee Engagement Awards recognise projects that have driven employee engagement in an organisation; our Staff Survey 2014 received a 72% response rate - the highest we've ever seen, and we have recently been placed in The Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work For list in the not-for profit sector and a two-star accreditation for oustanding employee engagement.
