Highly Commended CIPD People Management Awards

McCrudden Training is proud to have been highly commended in the CIPD People Management Awards, just behind the winner – a global company with an annual £64 million turnover and 6000 staff.

The McCrudden team was highly commended as L&D Supplier of the Year for its Lead by Example, manager training for West London NHS Trust.

Nicky McCrudden, Director, says: “I am absolutely ecstatic and so proud of my team, to be highly commended in these awards. I feel like we won. CIPD Awards are the toughest and most prestigious in our sector. When you compare the size and resources of McCrudden Training to the company that did win it just goes to show that size really does not matter when it comes to excellent training delivery and client relationships. We are a team of 14, working largely in the southeast of England, yet we are competing with these huge organisations with vast resources.”

The judges were particularly impressed with McCrudden Training’s ‘high energy, passionate and relationship-driven partnership with the client. They commented on the ‘huge amount of customer centricity and [the ability] to demonstrate that in the delivery of cultural change.’

They stated ‘this felt like a true partnership built on trust and shared objectives with a belief that one size fits one and every organisation is unique.’

Nicky says: “These comments really make me feel proud that our partnership approach with our clients is recognised by a body as important as the CIPD is to our industry. I want to grow from this commendation and learn from the feedback so we can really start to be seen as a contender in these valuable industry awards.”

This commendation follows McCrudden Training achieving a silver award in the 2019 TJ Awards Best Training Partnership and being shortlisted for the Personnel Today Awards HR Consultancy of the Year.
