Hounslow Council has been crowned a winner at the Public Services People Managers Association (PPMA) annual ceremony.
The prestigious ‘Work Transformation Initiative’ award recognises the great achievements of the Council over the past 18 months, celebrating the growth, resilience and positivity of the workforce in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The PPMA awards celebrate achievements in the fields of Human Resources and Organisational Development.
The Council has embarked on an ambitious change programme, despite the challenges of the pandemic, to create an ‘outstanding Council serving an outstanding borough’.
Hounslow was particularly commended by PPMA judges for its work in developing new organisational values and behaviours, and embedding those into the day-to-day work of Council officers.
Cllr Candice Atterton, Cabinet Member for Adults, Social Care and Health, said: “Our mission is to instil an environment of fulfilment, where everyone who lives and works in the borough can achieve their full potential. The emphasis on investing and developing our people is the foundation upon which we hope to live and work.
“Over the past eighteen months, our Council colleagues have stepped-up tremendously to support the people and communities of Hounslow through the Coronavirus pandemic. Our staff have lived and breathed each of our corporate values in every single day - and continue to do so.”
