As official executive search partner, The Grichan Partnership is proud to sponsor the UK’s flagship business awards programme – The Lloyds Bank National Business Awards.
Long seen as the must attend event for UK business leaders, the awards take place on 13 November 2018 at Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane and recognise and reward the very best of British business by profiling business excellence that goes beyond best practice and setting new standards for all industries.
Once again this year, our founders Richard Hewitt and Ralph English are an integral part of the event – panel judges for The Employer of the Year and The Vonage Nexmo Business Enabler of the Year categories respectively.
As one of the UK’s leading executive recruitment consultancies, this event and particularly The Employer of the Year accolade is perfectly aligned with our goals, ethos and expertise.
Richard explains, “I founded Grichan in 2007; building on my experience in process-improvement, management consultancy and with outsourced service providers of people and technology solutions. We take a consultative approach to all assignments and specialise in recruiting directors and senior managers through meticulous research within a global network. In eleven years of trading we’ve filled 97% of our assignments from first-presented shortlist. This is no accident and is a product of our ISO9001 processes and systems.
Being a judge for this year’s National Business Awards ’employer of the year’ category has given me, as CEO of Grichan, the opportunity to demonstrate our vision that sustainable businesses look after their employees and provide exemplary working arrangements and conditions in order for staff to excel.”
Of course, being a finalist is in itself an achievement and we congratulate each of the worthy companies on The Employer of the Year shortlist:
All have demonstrated excellence in several key areas such as leadership and management, innovation and operational excellence and improved financial performance through employee engagement.
Last year’s award ceremony was a fantastic event attended by 1,200 business leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians and media representatives. If you’ve not booked your ticket yet there is still time – it’s a unique opportunity to network and exchange ideas with the UK’s top business and most influential leaders.
