CEO Richard Marchant unveiled the 2014 winners of Capita’s internal ‘Success Awards’ programme on 09 December.
Our awards recognise individuals and teams from across our property and infrastructure business that best reflect how we 'listen, create and deliver' under the three categories of ‘people‘, ‘projects’ and ‘performance’.
Case study nominations are judged by a panel of representatives from the company’s operating divisions and unveiled at an informal awards lunch in London during December each year.
Learning and development manager Ann Graves from London (above, with CEO Richard Marchant) picked up the ‘People’ award for her integral role in a successful first year for Re, our newest local authority strategic partnership at the London Borough of Barnet. Using the experience and best practice she has developed over the past few years across our business, Ann has successfully delivered on 38 organisational development improvements to date - significantly increasing the training and development opportunities available to staff, and our corporate responsibility programmes within the local community.
The successful delivery of Braidwood House at the Fire Service College by a multidisciplinary team from six Capita offices (represented by Matt McWalter and Mark Whiting, above) scooped our 'Projects' award, with our judging panel describing it as "...an excellent advert for what we bring to the wider Capita organisation."
Our structural engineering team (represented by Bruno Postle and Hooman Baghi, above) was the recipient of the ‘Performance’ category award for their stunning sculptures at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Our judging panel said "...for the past nine years our engineers have been pushing the boundaries of physics and blurring the lines between art, engineering and manufacturing. Our sculptures – in which we turn a celebrated artist’s vision into physical reality through often ground-breaking feats of structural design - are viewed and praised by a global audience and truly position us as an industry innovator."
In all, 11 individuals and teams were recognised. As well as highly commended awards under each category the judges made two special awards for excellence in innovation and health and safety.
