November gave us more to celebrate as we were delighted to be shortlisted for two awards at the prestigious Investors in People Awards 2022 (read about our 2nd achievement of Platinum). In a record-breaking year for entries, with over three hundred organisations involved, we were shortlisted for the Award for Best Use of Technology and Chloe Williams, our Customer Liaison Executive, nominated as a finalist for the Award for Young Person of the Year.
September this year proved to be a wonderful month for us here at Cullen Scholefield. Not only was it our 36th birthday, but we discovered, with great delight, that we had been awarded the much sought after Platinum Accreditation from Investors in People. What’s more, it was our second time round for being recognised in such a manner and, in a nutshell, means we practice what we preach!
When I first entered HR, it seemed the key aspects to becoming a manager or leader were: Firstly, what drove promotion was your records coming to the top of the pile, and secondly, when appointed into management, often there was no change in behaviour. In reality, the existing skills were translated into the new role, working without providing direction and leadership to the team.
