People and talent management is wide ranging and a hugely impactful focus of work. Positive action on staff engagement, development, training and education, employment law or cultural change, can result in better management which affects the entire organisation. New initiatives around wellbeing and ways of working with and for our staff are making huge strides towards a more satisfied workforce with many of these ideas come from human resources. The diversity and inclusion agenda and ensuring representation across the workforce pipeline for all protected characteristics are vital for a thriving workforce, patient satisfaction and organisational efficiency.
The award will be won by a team executing initiatives or projects which are adding value to patients, staff and the wider organisation. The project might have involved multiple stakeholders; whether they be the board, patients, clinical services or partners. Judges will be looking for excellence in the management of expectations with results that have improved performance and quality.
Entries are welcomed from any NHS organisations and general practice.
