The Inspiration in HR Award recognises the work of Human Resources (HR) professionals. Now in its 12th year, the award is open to either individuals or organisations. Judges are looking for Best Practice in HR management where an organisation recognises that HR is a business enabler. 

This year’s finalists are Axis Communications, Axis Security, CIS Security, Gratte Brothers, Helen Corbett (of The Security Institute) and Wilson James.

To reach the shortlist, the above organisations demonstrated that they are wholly focused on quality and have a pride in looking after and developing their workforce.  There’s a partnership in HR and operations management.

Peter French MBE FSyI CPP: CEO at SSR Personnel and Founder of the Inspiration in HR Award

Shortlisted companies consider that their HR function gives them a competitive edge. They clearly demonstrate going above and beyond any current standards. The Inspiration in HR Award is one that recognises a critical differentiator in business application.

David Clark CPP PCI PSP, chairman of ASIS International’s UK Chapter 208, commented: “This award is increasingly hard to judge, and this year has been even more challenging, I’m enormously pleased to see three organisations from outside of the security guarding sector, which usually comprises the majority of entries, making the shortlist. This is surely testimony to the prestige and expansiveness of this particular award.”

*The winning submission will be announced at the UBM-organised Security and Fire Excellence Awards Ceremony to be held at the London Hilton Hotel, Park Lane on Wednesday 21 November

Axis Security picks up record five nominations for 2018 Security and Fire Excellence Awards

Axis Security, a leading provider of bespoke security services, has been shortlisted in five categories at the 2018 Security and Fire Excellence Awards, including the prestigious Security Guarding Company of the Year, an award that the business has been nominated for across seven consecutive years and has won on three occasions.

Five nominations in the Security and Fire Excellence Awards, which are organised and hosted by UBM, marks a record achievement for the company, with the remaining nominations being for Contribution to Standards in the Security Sector, Security Training Initiative of the Year (with ‘Security Masterclass’), the Inspiration in HR Award and the ACS Champion of the Year (an award the company won last year).

Jonathan Levine, Axis Group’s CEO, stated: “The company’s employees are its most important asset, while its key focus is in customer service. By prioritising training and employee welfare initiatives, our officers in turn prioritise excellent service for our customers’ customers. These nominations are testament to this focus.”

Axis Security’s nomination for the Contribution to Standards in the Security Sector Award recognises the company’s proactive use of training and site audits, internal employee awards and its development of a contract management and performance measurement software platform. Specifically this year, the nomination is a result of Axis’ critical role in one of its customers achieving the ISO 22301 business continuity standard for its flagship building. The award was achieved one month ahead of schedule and is the client’s first property to achieve the accreditation.

The Inspiration in HR Award acknowledges those companies demonstrating that HR is a fundamental part of their business and invest in their people. It’s bestowed by SSR Personnel and adjudicated by a prestigious panel of industry experts.

“To have picked up this number of nominations is evidence of the hard work of all employees from HR, training and operational personnel through to our security officers,” explained Levine. “I’m extremely proud and grateful for all the hard work that has been integral to our successes this year.”

Inspiration in HR Award 2013: Call for Entries

SSR Personnel’s managing director Peter French MBE created the Inspiration in HR Award to recognise the excellent work consistently carried out by Human Resources professionals (most notably in the security world).

The awards scheme – which is run in association with and supported by http://www.IFSECGlobal.com/UBM Live’s Security and Fire Portfolio – is open to either individuals or organisations deemed to have made a significant, positive and lasting impact in the areas of Human Resources management and corporate performance.

It’s fair to say that service sectors necessarily rely on teams of people operating across a number of environments, from customer-focused settings through to those that require an in-depth knowledge of technology.

For their part, Human Resources professionals play a key role in the selection, training and monitoring of thousands of individuals across these different spheres.

Now in its seventh year, the Inspiration in HR Award provides these professionals with the recognition they so richly deserve.

As always, the winner will be presented with their prize during the Security Excellence Awards ceremony organised by UBM Live’s Security Portfolio. This year, the event takes place at The London Hilton Hotel, Park Lane on Wednesday 23 October.

The Inspiration in HR Award is presented each year at the Security Excellence Awards Ceremony

Previous winners of the Inspiration in HR Award

Award winners to date have included Gemma Quirke of multiple award-winning security guarding solutions provider Wilson James and the HR teams at both VSG and Advance Security.

Speaking about the 2013 edition of the Inspiration in HR Award, Peter French explained: “We’re in the HR business, and deal with HR professionals all the time. They really are the professionals of the day, and that’s no understatement, but they rarely receive the due recognition they deserve. That’s why we launched the Inspiration in HR Award.”

French continued: “Whether you’re talking about finance, regulatory issues, the Corporate Social Responsibility agenda or talent-matching exercises, HR professionals can and do deliver massive improvements to businesses in terms of process, function and profitability.”
