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.
"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."
"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."
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
"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. "
