On January 27th we attended the annual awards for the Travail network of franchises and house branches from across the whole UK. It’s a national event celebrating the achievements of the company in 2017 and this year was held in the famous Belfry Hotel & Golf resort in Sutton Coldfield.
I am delighted to tell you that we came away with a clutch of awards and pretty much swept the board on the night. Highlights included Elle winning “Administrator of the Year”, Lauren reaching finalist in “Consultant of the Year”, a special recognition for our outstanding branch performance and the announcement that we achieved the highest number of permanent placements in a year in the 40 year history of Travail Employment Group which we are particularly proud of given the critical shortage of good candidates looking for work in this current employment climate.
We are one of the smallest branches in terms of the number of employees however our work ethic and commitment to provide the best service we can for our fabulous clients means that we are able to be up there with the biggest players. We are exceptionally pleased to work with many, many of the BHBPA members and they have shown us loyalty, patience and support over the past year in particular. Many provided glowing testimonials to support the award nominations and I am very grateful for the kind words and comments made. The individual awards were fantastic but I know that all my staff will agree that the success we achieve is very much a team effort and I am so proud of each and every one of them.
Our aim for 2018 is to do the same again whilst reaching out to more companies in order to assist them with their recruitment.
“I am not one for self-promotion but the achievements of my team this year have been exceptional and I couldn’t let the opportunity to say how proud I am of them all pass me by.”
Judi Arditi, Travail Director.
"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."
"“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 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."
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
