Connor recognised in best UK L&D/HR consultancy category at the 2017 CIPD Awards

Connor was recognised as one of six finalists in the best L&D/HR consultancy category at the CIPD People Management Awards 2017. The award winners were revealed last week in a ceremony attended by over 1,000 people at the Grosvenor Hotel in London.

Our leadership development work for the senior team at energy provider Flogas was selected by a panel of judges as one of the six best entries for the award. Sharon Platts, HR director at Flogas commented: "I have worked in HR for over 20 years and this was the only time I've been able to categorically show a return on investment for a development programme.

At Flogas, it's important to us to put our people first, and since working with Connor, the difference in behaviour in our leadership team is astonishing. We have increased capabilities and noticeably matured as an organisation. To measure the impact of this development we asked our people 18 questions about their belief in their capabilities before the programme, and then the same questions after - with confidence improving in all areas."

"Our nomination demonstrates that Connor is now being recognised as one of the best in class in the world of human resources."Paul Connor, managing director, Connor

Kate Keaney, head of HR services and talent & organisation development at Connor commented: "Our clients are keen to see tangible results from their people development programmes, our partnership with Flogas has achieved this and we're proud to have been recognised by the CIPD.

Paul Connor, managing director at Connor added: "Our nomination demonstrates that Connor is now being recognised as one of the best in class in the world of human resources. We've been around for over 25 years and I can genuinely say that the talent in our business is the best it has ever been."
