Travail Employment Group in Burgess Hill will celebrate its 10th anniversary in April, and the branch business at their offices in Church Road is flying as never before.
At the annual award ceremony in Sheffield last week for the national network of Travail branches, it was the team at Burgess Hill who came away with a clutch of awards. It proved to be a fantastic evening for the team led by Judi Arditi, who have made terrific progress over the last couple of years. Judi puts much of the success down to ‘going local’. She tells me that since they decided to concentrate on the local area, things have gone better and better, to the point where now they have never been busier. They recently advertised on a large billboard by the station and have been flooded with work locally
This was recognised in their receiving an award for Outstanding Performance in 2015, which places them in the elite group around the whole country.
Ann-Marie Shine Newton followed up last year’s Top Consultant Award with another finalist postion, while Lauren Pool won the top award of Administrator of the Year for her exceptional support work during the year. Maisie Stoneham might surely have won an award but she didn’t qualify as she has been working there under the minimum requirement of one year’s service. Maisie has been instrumental in the success of the branch.
Together these young women have been encouraged and led by Judi to become a formidable team whose awards are very well deserved. And they are an absolutely delightful bunch of people too!
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
