University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT) has scooped the top award at this year’s Personnel Today Awards for a major culture change programme that boosted morale.
UHMBT won the ‘Overall Winner Award’, having also picked up the ‘Employee Engagement Award’, in a room of almost 900 HR professionals at Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
After putting what judges described as “their heart and soul” into a comprehensive change programme, the Trust’s Workforce Team received praise for driving “palpable” improvements.
David Wilkinson, Director of People and Organisational Development said; “It is a huge privilege to have been nominated for three national awards, but to win the Employee Engagement Award and Overall Winner Award is a phenomenal achievement that recognises how we are building a ‘Great Place to Work, a Great Place to Be Cared For’.
“I would like to say a huge congratulations and thank you to the Workforce Team and all UHMBT staff. Over the last five years, an enormous amount of work has focused on creating a positive culture here at Morecambe Bay. The awards recognise the hard work and dedication of all our staff.
“Once again, thank you and well done to all staff and volunteers.”
