The CIPD (aka The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) is the national association for human resource management professionals and their regional awards celebrate the organisations across the North East going above and beyond in People practice.

We’re proud to have been shortlisted for three awards this year:

  • Excellence in SME People Practice
  • Excellence & Health & Wellness
  • Excellence in Positive Impact

Excellence in SME People Practice Award

The Excellence in SME People Practice was judged based on our commitment to personal development, values and culture, employee onboarding, and training practices. Some of the highlights that we showcased included were:

  • Best-in-class personal development
  • Values and culture-driven hybrid policy
  • Value-based office environment, boosting collaboration and socialisation
  • Onboarding for new employees
  • Training partnerships to develop new roles and provide opportunities for new areas of expertise

We’re over the moon that the judges saw the value in our approach!

Head of People at Evolved Search, Sinead Hall, said: “We are extremely honoured to have won the Excellence in SME People Practice award 2022.

“As a business we understand the importance of our people and that their actions and behaviours are key in delivering results, and that’s why we genuinely put our team at the forefront of everything we do and will continue to do so as we grow.

“Our People team isn’t a single department to us, it’s a critical company-wide effort, and winning this award would not have been possible if it wasn’t for our whole team and the dedication they all show by truly living our values and creating such a fantastic culture for themselves and their peers.

“The North East has some impeccable HR talent and we were blown away to have been shortlisted alongside them for three amazing awards this year, this over anything else has made this award win very meaningful for us.”
