National recognition for NHS Trust’s People and Organisational Development work

Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT) is delighted to have been shortlisted for two Healthcare People Management Association (HPMA) Excellence in People awards which recognise and celebrate the work of human resources (HR), organisational development (OD) and workforce professionals in healthcare across the UK.

The Capsticks Award for Innovation in HR for a cutting edge, creative initiative that has led to improved practice, for the Big Shout Out, a virtual celebration and ‘thank you’ to staff for their efforts throughout 2020 and the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic. The event included 3 virtual festival tents and over 40 hours of digital content, based on the themes of compassion, collaboration and celebration.

The Academi Wales Award for Excellence in OD for an OD initiative or project that has significantly benefited the organisation through improved effectiveness or viability, for the Trust’s innovative collaboration programme and hub, In Our Gift. The programme aims to capture the art of the possible by harnessing the talents of staff from across the organisation.

It uses a digital platform to enable colleagues to connect, influence and collaborate to improve the experience of staff and service users. Alex Brett, Director of People at MPFT said, “I am delighted that the Trust has been shortlisted for two HPMA awards which is a great achievement and testament to the incredible work of our People and OD teams in partnership with corporate and clinical services. “I’m very proud of the continued hard work and dedication of these teams and staff across the Trust over the past year, as demonstrated in our staff survey results, in particular the innovation and flexibility demonstrated in the response to the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Representatives from the Trust will attend virtual judging panels later this month and the winners will be announced at a virtual awards ceremony in October.
