Ashfield Meetings & Events is delighted to announce that it is a finalist in the 2016 UK Employee Experience Awards. The awards recognise and celebrate the delivery of exceptional employee experiences in businesses across the UK.

Ashfield has been shortlisted in the Learning & Development category for their internal development programmes, including the already award-winning Bitesize programme.

Ashfield Meetings & Events won gold at the Training Journal Awards in 2014 for Bitesize, a flexible training programme that is run and delivered by the training department and expert employees, which has continued to develop and adapt to the fast-paced, changing industry. Since this award win, the training department has continued to grow and invest in further development programmes including the recently announced Future Focus programme. These all work alongside each other with the addition of SPARK THINKING sessions that encourage and teach creativity and challenge traditional ways of thinking.

Neil Skehel (CEO, Awards International) said the standard of entries for 2016 has exceeded all expectations: “We are delighted to announce the finalists of the UK Employee Experience Awards. The quality of entries has been outstanding and it is fantastic to see how businesses throughout the UK are delivering outstanding employee experiences. We would like to congratulate all of the finalists and look forward to celebrating and rewarding their success at the awards ceremony.”

The final judging of the awards will take place on 4 May, followed by the awards presentation that evening.

Nicola Burns (Global Managing Director) commented on the announcement: “I am incredibly proud of the training department at Ashfield Meetings & Events. They work extremely hard to ensure all of our employees continue to develop their skills and knowledge and have a clear career path ahead of them. The programmes they have introduced over the last few years have shaped the way the business runs today and ensures the values of the business underpin each and every decision.”
