One week left to enter Springboard Awards for Excellence

There is just one week left to enter the Springboard Awards for Excellence, which seek to celebrate and reward inspiring people, organisations and initiatives.

The closing date for entries is Monday 14 September, and there are four categories: Promoting Careers, Attracting and Developing People, Best Employment Practice, and the Chris Beaumont Award. There are multiple awards within each category, including best regional initiative, best work experience provider, best chef development strategy, best use of digital media and best career progression.

The winners will be announced at an evening ceremony on 2 November at the Novotel London West hotel. Last year's winners included Accor UK & Ireland Hotels, PPHE Hotel Group, Oakman Inns & Restaurants and Alastair Storey, who received the Chris Beaumont Award.

Commenting on the awards, Springboard chief executive officer Anne Pierce said: "The Springboard Awards for Excellence will recognise the very best in the industry. The process of entering the awards will help businesses identify their achievements as organisations and the outstanding work carried out by the individuals within it. Winning an award has a significant and positive impact on both business and your employees."

Springboard seeks to help young people facing barriers into work by introducing them to sustainable employment within hospitality, leisure and tourism. It offers career information, work experience opportunities, development programmes and mentoring schemes alongside educational teaching resources and student support.
