Resource Management (RM), partner of The HR World, will be 2017 headline sponsors for the CIPD People Management Awards for the third time this year.
The PMAs, as they are known in the industry, have been running since 1996 and are the cornerstone of celebrating outstanding achievement in HR, people management and development. Taking place at the Grosvenor Hotel on London’s Park Lane on September 26th, the awards are jointly run by the CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development, and People Management magazine.
Mike Beesley, CEO of RSG, said:
“We are delighted to be headline sponsor of the People Management Awards for the third year running. After 40 years in the business, RM has been lucky enough to act as recruitment partner to many successful businesses and to have witnessed first-hand some truly amazing, inspirational work that has taken place across all aspects of people management.
“Right now it feels that the industry is in particularly good shape and engaging in ways that are both exciting and inspirational while at the same time changing the way we operate in the future. Therefore, and are very much looking forward to celebrating with all the finalists on what we are sure will be a very enjoyable evening.”
Peter Cheese - CEO at CIPD, said:
“We’ve seen a significant amount of change since last year’s awards, particularly in the political landscape. The need to engage with our people, to ensure we are recognising and valuing diversity, to encourage their well-being, and to understand the outcomes of what we do in driving innovation, adaptation, and productivity have never been more important. The changing contexts of work don’t look like they’re going to slow down any time soon. In the first few months of this year alone we’ll see the National Living Wage increase, Gender Pay Gap reporting come into force, as well as the arrival of the highly-anticipated Apprenticeship Levy.
“Much of this change has and will have a direct impact on the HR and L&D professions. We need to continue to evolve, to innovate, to drive value and to understand risks, whilst delivering clear and effective people management and development initiatives. This year’s People Management awards will recognise the teams and individuals that are achieving excellence through initiatives that not only fit changing contexts, but continue to champion better work and working lives. I wish all entrants the best of luck and look forward to celebrating the outstanding results that have been achieved over the last 12 months.”
The deadline date for entries for The CIPD People Management Awards is 20th April 2017, more information about the event can be found here: www.cipdpmas.co.uk.
