Cherry on top at HR award show

cHeRries Awards
cHeRries Awards

Examples of “exceptional” employee engagement” and “extraordinary” initiatives in the region’s human resources (HR) sector are contesting two of the categories of The Press and Journal cHeRries Awards 2019.

The accolade for employee engagement is sponsored by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. It is aimed at an organisation which can best show a well-thought-out strategy linking employee engagement to the heart of the business.

There are two finalists in this category, Aker Solutions and Sport Aberdeen.

Aker said it was “delighted” to be shortlisted, adding: “Our people are our greatest asset and it’s especially great to be able to celebrate their valuable contribution to our business with this award.”

Nickie Scorgie, head of HR and organisational, Sport Aberdeen, said making the shortlist was recognition for “our commitment to creating a working environment where employees are valued for their contribution to our success, offered opportunities to develop individually, and feel supported and encouraged.”

The “extraordinary” HR Initiative award is sponsored by North Sea firm CNOOC International.

It is for an individual or team behind a creative and innovative approach to HR, successfully delivered within the past 12 months, which “set them apart from the crowd”.

There are three contenders in this category, with two Bilfinger Salamis UK initiatives – the firm’s mobilisation app and rope access academy – vying for the gong with

Birlinn Offshore, which said it was “inspiring” for its “small, tight-knit team” to have its hard work recognised.

The Press and Journal cHeRries Awards, held in association with Robert Gordon University and supported by wealth management and employee benefit services firm Mattioli Woods, recognise excellence in HR, training and recruitment.

They reach their climax with a ceremony at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on Thursday May 30. Tickets can be purchased via or by calling 01382 575308.
