MVF’s People team has been shortlisted for an incredible three categories in the 2018 HR Distinction Awards.
Up for awards in ‘Leadership Development’, ‘Innovative Recruitment & Onboarding Initiatives’ and ‘HR Team of the Year’, MVF’s People team have had a momentous year delivering some incredible programmes under the leadership of Chief People Officer Andrea Pattico.
For the Innovative Recruitment & Onboarding category the team submitted StartSmart, MVF’s bespoke onboarding programme. Run over twelve weeks, StartSmart has supported the company’s rapid growth by providing every new starter with the knowledge, tools, and support to have the best chance of success in their new role.
The team are shortlisted in the ‘Leadership Development’ category for the successful launch of an internal Management Development Academy, for which they also achieved accreditation from the UK’s Institute of Leadership and Management.
This year 44 of MVF’s future leaders will have the opportunity to graduate the Academy, receiving a nationally recognised accreditation and world class management knowledge. A further 68 employees have already registered to complete the programme in 2018.
MVF CEO Michael Teixeira commented: “It’s fantastic to have our People team recognised as one of the best in the UK. They’ve launched two game changing development programmes within the past twelve months, all while supporting several major business initiatives and providing outstanding HR services to our 400-strong workforce.”
