A hat trick of award wins with an Ideas UK award!

Shared Services Connected Ltd (SSCL*) is celebrating our second award win of the week, giving us a hat trick of award wins this season. 

This latest accolade was an Ideas UK award in the People and Organisation category, and is hot on the heels of the Reward Strategy Best Team Award.

The award recognises ‘The SSCL Way’ - a highly successful employee engagement programme developed by us and rolled out to colleagues in 2017.

As part of this programme events were designed so that colleagues could own their part in building a single culture and change ways of working across our business, engaging directly with the strategy.

The scale and complexity of the transformation undertaken in SSCL since its concept in November 2013 has been unprecedented.

Rachel Summers, Director of Operational Excellence, Strategy and Transformation, said: “This award is a win for every single person in the organisation as it recognises the hard work that has been undertaken to make 'The SSCL Way' a success. It truly demonstrates the importance of actively engaging and interacting with every colleague to create a feeling of inclusivity to enable the ‘one SSCL’ cohesive team we have today.”

Shared Services Connected Ltd Government Managing Director, Jeannette Smith, said: “Another fantastic achievement to end an amazing week!

“This is a wonderful representation of the team spirit and culture that The SSCL Way has defined within our organisation. Our transformation journey has been unparalleled and the commitment that everyone has demonstrated to this defining point in our success makes me incredibly proud. We recently celebrated our fifth birthday and I spoke about collaboration and the importance of having one culture.

“This award recognises just how important this is to SSCL.”

Last month, we were winners of the best HR and Learning & Development Supplier 2018 in the prestigious CIPD People Management Annual Awards. This recognised our outstanding contribution to recruitment, vetting and project teamwork to support the resourcing challenges of the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). The excellent results saw our innovative technology solutions achieve targets to recruit 2,500 new prison officers nine months ahead of schedule!

We are also a finalist in the forthcoming Personnel Today, Engage, and CIPD Wales Awards.
