The strengths of the human resources, recruitment and training sector in the Northeast of Scotland are being highlighted again by the high standard of nominations already received for the cHeRries Awards 2009.
Organised by Aberdeen-based event management company cushydoos, with Aberdeen Business School at The Robert Gordon University as title sponsor and Kudos – Employee Benefits as supporting sponsor, the Awards are open to teams and/or individuals in Aberdeen and the Northeast of Scotland.
With a closing date in early February, Karen Reid, Director, cushydoos, said:
“Entries are ahead of this time last year and the nominations so far are a great testament to the quality work in the field of HR, training and recruitment in the region – and further confirm the attractions of the cHeRries Awards as a high profile platform on which to celebrate and commend the achievements.”
The award categories and sponsors are:
The cHeRries Blossoming Award, Aberdeen Business School at The Robert Gordon University; Outstanding HR Director, Kudos – Employee Benefits; Excellent HR Manager, Thorpe Molloy Recruitment; Fantastic HR Advisor, Wood Group; Extraordinary Team Initiative, Source-People; Tremendous Training and Development, Aberdeen Appointments Agency (AAA); and Finders Keepers Recruitment & Retention, Paull and Williamsons.
Stuart McWilliam, a Director of Aberdeen Appointments Agency, a leading recruitment and training consultancy, said:
“We know the importance of having a real understanding of the people and skills which employers need, and recognise that people are individuals and no two organisations have the same needs. We are delighted, therefore, to support the cHeRries and, in particular, the Tremendous Training and Development Award.”
The closing date for entries is Monday, 2nd February, with the winners announced at a ceremony at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, Aberdeen, on Thursday, 28th May.
