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!
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"“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.""
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
