The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) revealed the shortlist for their 2023 People Management Awards, which are a benchmark of excellence in HR, Learning & Development and Organisational Development.

We are delighted to have been shortlisted alongside high profile organisations from across the UK, in the ‘Best CSR/ESG Initiative’ category, showcasing our commitment to effectively embedding environmental, social, governance (ESG) into our activities.

Judges were impressed by our ‘A Better Future: Creating Careers & Communities’ initiative, which was driven to increase opportunities for young people, upskill the workforce, provide ESG education, implement community programmes and recruit talented, like-minded people to make a difference in creating thriving communities.

Paula Robinson, Interim Chief People and Communications Officer for The Sovini Group said: “We recognise the importance of our environmental, social and governance activities in creating a sustainable and inclusive future for our people and our business.

“It is essential that our colleagues are met with valuable learning and development opportunities, and meaningful employment as an equal driver to our success in fulfilling our mission for the communities we serve.
