Springboard’s CEO Anne Pierce MBE said that the awards would recognize the very best in the industry.  She explained: “The process of entering the awards will help businesses identify their achievements as organisations and the outstanding work carried out by the individuals within it. Winning an award has a significant and positive impact on both business and your employees.” Last year’s winners included: Accor UK & Ireland Hotels, PPHE Hotel Group, Oakman Inns & Restaurants Ltd and Alastair Storey, who received the coveted Chris Beaumont Award. Celebrating their 25th year in 2015, Springboard works with the industry in helping the young and unemployed into sustainable employment in the hospitality, leisure and tourism industries. They offer services such as specialist careers information, work experience opportunities and mentoring programmes. The closing date for entries is Monday, September 14 2015, with the awards themselves taking place at the Novotel London west hotel on Monday, November 2. Enter here: www.springboard.uk.net
