enei Awards 2020 Results

PwC, NELFT NHS Trust, Financial Ombudsman Service and Frontline take top honours

 

 

PwC was virtually named the best private sector employer for equality and inclusion at the enei Awards. The firm was shortlisted in three categories, winning awards for Team of the Year and Advancing Social Mobility in the Workplace and being highly commended in the Innovative Ways of Working category.

It was a good day for the professional services sector as EY’s Zaheer Ahmad MBE was named winner of the Personal Achievement award after impressing the judges with his commitment to inclusion both inside EY and in his local community.

The judges found plenty to be impressed by in the public sector too, with North East London NHS Foundation Trust and the Financial Ombudsman Service named joint overall winners for the public sector. The Financial Ombudsman Service took home the awards for Inclusive Culture and Employee Network Group of the Year, whilst North East London NHS Foundation Trust won the award for Disability Confident as well as commendations for Inclusive Culture and Innovative Ways of Working.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council’s chief executive Andrea Sutcliffe and director of registration and revalidation Emma Broadbent were named joint Equality and Inclusion Senior Champions in recognition of the work they do and the changes that they have driven at the regulator.

Social work charity Frontline received both the Small Employer of the Year and Wellbeing awards for their focus on employee wellness during a period of rapid expansion.
