St Ann’s has been shortlisted for ‘The Third Sector Award’ in The Investors in People (IiP) Awards 2021. The Investors in People Awards celebrate the very best organisations and individuals from around the world, across various people, wellbeing and leadership categories.
Each year hundreds of organisations from the UK and abroad battle it out to take home one of the sought-after trophies to show their award-winning commitment to investing in their people. This year was a record-breaking year for entries, with nearly three hundred organisations involved.
We’re so proud to be shortlisted for this award, particularly in our 50th birthday year and after working through such a challenging 18 months. Our teams have worked tirelessly on the front line to make sure our patients stay safe, and we can continue to provide the support they need. We’ve not only continued providing world-class care during this period, we’ve also evolved and grown many of our services to meet the increased and ever-changing needs of our patients. We wouldn’t be here without the amazing hard work and dedication of our staff and volunteers, and I’m so proud to have been shortlisted for this award in recognition of that. Rachel McMillan, Chief Executive at St Ann's Hospice
Now in our 8th year, it always makes me feel immensely proud to see so many fantastic organisations staking their claim to be the best. And every year, the entries do get more and more competitive and the judging even tighter. Reaching the final shortlist is a testament to the amazing commitment these organisations are making to make work better for their people, and they truly deserve this recognition. Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People
The award winners will be announced at an online ceremony on the 23rd November 2021.
