Pertemps’ account director finalist in Gender Equality Awards
Pertemps’ account director for Thames Water Contract, Abigail Farnham, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Business in the Community Workplace Gender Equality Awards 2016, sponsored by Nationwide.
The Business in the Community Workplace Gender Equality Awards, which are now in their 21st year, recognise and celebrate best practice, innovation and individual achievement in public and private sector organisations that are leading the way in creating workplaces that work for women.
Farnham is a finalist in the Inclusive Leader Award: People Manager category, in partnership with the CIPD. The company says the award is for a people manager whose inclusive approach to leading diverse teams has engaged and empowered women and employees as a whole, leading to improved individual and organisational performance.
Chairperson of Pertemps, Carmen Watson, said, “Throughout our company, there are countless examples of women being empowered to enjoy successful careers. Our founder in 1961 was a woman and her original vision and objectives are still pursued by the business today: to promote internally, recruit fairly and to create female role models that can be used as a beacon to attract top female talent and represent our client and customer base.”
Kathryn Nawrockyi, Gender Equality Director, Business in the Community, said: “Congratulations to Abigail and Pertemps on being named a Finalist in the Business in the Community Workplace Gender Awards 2016. All of our Finalists demonstrate a clear commitment towards creating inclusive workplaces where women are able to progress and reach their full potential.”
The winners will be announced at the Business in the Community Workplace Gender Equality Awards Gala Dinner, which takes place on Wednesday 20th April 2016 at the London Hilton on Park Lane, as part of Business in the Community’s Responsible Business Week.
