The Staffordshire-based organisation is announced as a finalist in the prestigious CIPD People Management Awards for Best SME People Management Initiative, the event being held at the Grosvenor Hotel in London on September 22nd.
The Award celebrates Best SME People Management Initiative, with entrants needing to demonstrate the way in which they are delivering clear opportunities for employees, setting them apart from the crowd. Strategi has been recognised for its innovative ‘StratStars’ programme that champions developing junior members of the team to succession plan for the future of the business.
The ultimate goal of the programme is that it will give the individuals involved the tools and experience needed to be prepared to take on Board level roles within the next five years. A unique and exciting opportunity, this demonstrates Strategi’s commitment to supporting young people in the local community, giving them the opportunity for progression and development to achieve their career goals whilst retaining talent in the area.
Founder of the programme and Managing Director, Rob Fisher said, “Being increasingly aware of the changing landscape that we operate in, we have always been fortunate to have a diverse age range within our team to learn from. The team members who are involved in the programme demonstrated the ability to grab an opportunity and run with it, and I am so proud of the progress being made to prepare them to take on the next steps of their exciting careers.
“I was given this opportunity through becoming MD of Strategi at 33 and I’m really looking forward to having them as a part of the Strategi team and on the Board, in the future It’s about sustainability, and it’s about growing your own by giving the StratStars early recognition and being clear that they are our future to the rest of the team. The Board of today is totally committed to giving time, experience, and support to each StratStar to build on their confidence and ambition for the future.”
Erin Hill, Marketing & Communications Manager, and part of the ‘StratStars’ initiative added, “Having the opportunity to work for an organisation that provides a clear plan for my future, as well as the opportunity to learn and develop the skills I need to be successful in my chosen sector, is a dream come true.
“I am surrounded by some of the most brilliant and skilled people that I get the opportunity to learn from, and I can’t wait to be a part of the future successes of this business.”
Strategi looks forward to celebrating their achievements and the achievements of the other finalists at the awards in September, with everything crossed for them to be announced as winners on the night.
