For the second year in a row, Seetec Ireland has been shortlisted for the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) awards in two categories: “Elevating the Employee Experience” and “Excellence in HR consulting.” Last year, we were finalists in the category “Embedding a Culture of Workplace Wellbeing.” Other highly regarded finalists include Eir, Bus Éireann, and Kainos.
As the most prestigious Human Resources awards in Ireland, the CIPD Ireland HR Awards reflect the powerful impact and reach of the people profession. Our Senior Human Resources Business Partner, Sophie Finglas talks about the significance of these nominations for Seetec Ireland.
Sophie said: “Last year’s nomination in the workplace wellbeing category focused on the measures we took to safeguard our colleagues’ connectedness, and mental and physical health during the pandemic. However, this year’s categories are dedicated to enhancing the overall work-life experiences of our colleagues by fostering empowerment, trust, and transparency.”
“They symbolize the transformative journey we’ve undergone in recent years, including the transition to an employee-owned business and the mobilisation of our Intreo Partner National Employment Service contracts.”
Sophie continued: “Thanks to the partnership between our Senior Team and HR, we boast a highly engaged and committed workforce. Our employees feel secure in having a meaningful role in decisions that directly impact their work.”
“I am genuinely delighted that we are being recognized in these categories. It not only acknowledges the significant contributions of our HR team but also highlights the remarkable adaptability and resilience displayed by our teams throughout challenging periods. I’m looking forward to the 23rd of February to join the CIPD finalists and share our successes from 2023.”
Executive Director, Karl Milne said: “We deliver people-to-people services in challenging circumstances, these nominations are deserved recognition for the fantastic contribution Sophie makes to supporting and empowering our teams. She is valued and appreciated by her colleagues but it’s always good to achieve recognition from your peers in the CIPD.”
