Celebrating Awards Success
09 February 2021
We're winners at the TSG Awards
We had great news to kick-start 2021 as we won the Technology Services Group (TSG) Customer Excellence Award for Employee Wellbeing.
The award was given in recognition of our implementation and roll-out of a special app that recognises staff achievements, as well as the way we have used Microsoft Office 365 tools to keep our teams connected during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Carole Galsworthy, our Head of ICT & Digital, collected the award at a virtual ceremony in January.
She said: “It is fantastic that the team at LHP have been given this award for their hard work and commitment to ensure everyone has been able to continue working, specifically using Microsoft Teams, throughout the pandemic.
“It is also brilliant that our Round of Applause app has also been recognised; saying thank you is such a great thing and really impacts on people’s wellbeing.
“We are so proud to be part of LHP’s Digital Transformation journey.”
Round of Applause is a special ‘power app’ through the Microsoft SharePoint system that the team we have developed in conjunction with partners at TSG.
The app allows our staff to give their colleagues a virtual ‘Round of Applause’ in recognition of work or support that meets the company’s values of Customer First, Together and Listen, Act and Learn.
Each Round of Applause is equivalent to five virtual points, and when an individual reaches 50 points, they are awarded a special prize.
Rory McKeand, COO at TSG added: “We place great importance on ensuring the wellbeing of our people and commend all of our customers that make similar commitments.
“We received a large number of submissions for the Employee Wellbeing Award but LHP stood out with their comprehensive approach to employee engagement platforms and the buy-in from their organisation to stay connected, especially during a period which has been challenging for so many.
“We’re thrilled to work in partnership with an organisation which has demonstrated a commitment to helping its people succeed.”
In addition, Carole was one of the main speakers at TSG’s Power Up Your Intranet event on Tuesday 26 January.
The virtual conference was a housing showcase that informed other organisations about how SharePoint is the most flexible option as an Intranet platform, as well as one that offers the best value for money.
As part of Carole’s involvement in the event, TSG made a generous donation to our Charity of the Year, Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.
