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!
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"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."
