NHS organisation receives special recognition at Inspiring Workplaces Awards

The NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) has been ranked number one in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) by Inspiring workplaces in its Government and Non-Profit category.

The Inspiring Workplaces awards, which took place last night [Thursday 11 May], recognise the very best of forward-thinking organisations which put their people first.

The NHSBSA, which has its headquarters in Newcastle, was hailed as excellent for promoting its people’s welfare; creating safe spaces to work and for thinking about their financial wellbeing during the cost of living crisis.

On top of this, the NHSABSA was also listed in the Top 50 Inspiring Workplaces alongside big global brands including BP and the BBC.  

Mark Dibble, Executive Director of People and Corporate Services at the NHSBSA said: “This is excellent recognition for all the hard work and dedication shown by colleagues from across the NHSBSA in helping to make the NHSBSA a great place to work and I would like to thank them all for being part of that”. 

Matt Manners, Founder of The Inspiring Workplaces Group commented: “Congratulations to The Top 50 Inspiring Workplaces throughout EMEA. The calibre of submissions this year has seen the bar raised considerably. The strongest that we have ever seen. This shows that business leaders really are putting their people first and reaping the rewards this deserves.

“It also shows that positive, meaningful change is being delivered throughout the world of work. So this year we did not rank the Top 50 because simply being listed clearly puts those organisations in a new gold standard for PeopleFirst organisations”.
