Thursday 16th May the Allstate NI HR team and a group of our visiting US partners attended the prestigious CIPD NI Awards at the Ulster Museum. We are delighted to advise that out of a total of 6 awards the Allstate NI teams were recognized in 5 categories.
The Energy for Life team headed up by Training Manager Paula Graham picked up the Health and Wellness Initiative award. This award recognizes the sterling work of the local team and the US trainers who have customized and are delivering our very own internal programme, designed to introduce employees to healthy behaviours and lifestyle.
Our HR team picked up the award for Team of the Year and were also highly commended for their work in Employee Engagement and Building HR Capability for the Future.
We are also very proud to announce that our Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer Rose Kelly has been named 2013's CIPD HR Professional of the Year. A thoroughly well-deserved piece of external recognition.
It was Rose's proven ability to drive change and improve organizational effectiveness through visionary leadership and innovative people strategies that made her a worthy recipient. Rose always conducts herself with the highest degree of professionalism, integrity, and a sincere commitment to help others and I am sure you will join me in congratulating Rose on this very well prestigious accolade. Well done to Rose and the Team!!
