Yorkshire Water scoops another award

Yorkshire Water is celebrating after scooping the prestigious Staff Development Award.

The Bradford based utility firm was recognised for the Business Support Group Hot Seat Scheme which gives colleagues the opportunity to understand and find solutions to a range of challenges that are facing the business whilst delivering a transformational change initiative.

The scheme has been successful in developing the potential of colleagues, driving innovation and improving communication within the team. The scheme allows colleagues one day a week to work on an initiative and actually sit in on various senior management team meetings.

Yorkshire Water’s CEO Richard Flint said it was a fantastic achievement. “With ever increasing demands upon the organisation, departments need to come up with new and innovative ways of delivering results. The Hot-Seat scheme does this to great effect and is a great credit to those involved.”

Joanne Robinson who was part of the team said that the award recognition had given them all a real boost.

Due to the success of the scheme and the positive feedback it has received, the third scheme is about to be launched.

The staff development award was picked up at the Utility Week Industry Achievement Awards which recognises the companies and individuals forging the way ahead in the utilities sector.

This is the latest in a catalogue of successful wins which include the Carbon Trust Standard and the Innovation category at the National Constructing Excellence Awards.
