Winner - Exemplary Employer of Choice, Walkers Shortbread Ltd.

Eight finalists are in the running for two hotly contested categories of The Press and Journal cHeRries Awards 2019.

The gong for exemplary employer of the choice will go to either Dundee and Angus College, Johnstons of Elgin, Macphie or Stork.

Sponsored by Aberdeen University Business School, the exemplary employer accolade will be judged on factors including staff communication, engagement practices and the development opportunities on offer.

Johnstons chief executive Simon Cotton said reaching the final was “testament to all the hard work within the organisation to look after our employees and put their development at the heart of the business strategy”.

Macphie head of human resources (HR) Heather Hannam said: “To be shortlisted for this award recognises our commitment to supporting our workforce.”

Stork regional director Steve Hunt said: “Being recognised in this particular category is a huge accolade and vote of confidence in our strategy of putting our people at the heart of everything we do”.

The Mike Reid Community Award – named after former cHeRries judge Mike Reid who died last May after battling cancer – has four contenders. They are Nickie Scorgie of Sport Aberdeen, Taqa’s Pauline Robertson, Ross Jolly of Deemount Consulting/Aberdeen Young Professionals (AYP) and Stacy Edghill from CV Aberdeen.

This award recognises people who commit time and effort to volunteering, fundraising or otherwise supporting good causes in their community.

Ms Scorgie said: “I am extremely humbled to be shortlisted and have my volunteering work recognised.”

Mr Jolly said winning would be “fantastic recognition” for the AYP group in its 10th year, while Ms Edghill said being nominated and then shortlisted was “absolutely overwhelming”.

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 cherriesawards.co.uk or by calling 01382 575308.
