The HSJ Awards has announced the finalists of the Workforce category, which is proudly sponsored by NHS Professionals.
The winners of the 2015 HSJ Awards will be announced at a prestigious ceremony on 19 November at Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
The Workforce award is about recognising innovation in workforce development. Judges were looking for new strategic approaches to workforce planning to improve quality and productivity. They wanted to see organisations rethinking roles, breaking down the traditional barriers to create an adaptable workforce that delivers quality and efficiency. They wanted to see initiatives that develop not just the existing workforce and its talents, but those who look for new ways to bring people into the NHS – getting good people into hard-to-fill entry-level posts.
The judges have narrowed the Workforce category down to 11 entries; click on each of the links below to find out more about their initiatives. Good luck to all of the finalists!
