Delt Shared Services finalists at Project Management Awards 

 

Back in July, Delt’s Project Management Office were delighted to have been short-listed as one of 4 finalists for the Association for Project Management’s (APM) Project Management Award, Contribution to Project Management: Small to Medium Enterprise. 

The APM Awards celebrate excellence and endorse innovation within the project management space. The Delt team competed against an incredibly high calibre of entries from a vast number of sectors and countries. 

Unfortunately, Delt just missed the top spot. That said the team are delighted with the recognition they have received for their contributions to Helping People Do Amazing Things over the past 12 months. Congratulations to P2 Consulting for winning this year. 

Gary Pettitt, Chief Project Officer added“I am incredibly proud of the PMO team and the outstanding work they deliver to our customers. We were up against a high calibre of entries so to be included as a finalist is a fantastic achievement for all at Delt and a true reflection of how the team have continued to deliver, exceeding expectations, throughout the Pandemic. To have external validation of the excellent service our project professionals provide is an achievement to be proud of”. 

Giles Letheren, CEO said; “I’m delighted that the work that the Project Management Office does has been reflected in the finalist list at the APM Awards. The team successfully delivered over 300 business change and transformation projects for our shareholders and commercial customers in 2020/2021 and this shortlisting is testament to their hard work”. 

Delt’s Project Management Office delivers a range of technology-based change and transformation projects ranging from small office-based projects to multi-million-pound projects with regional impact.

Very Good To Work For

Delt Shared Services earns place on UK’S Top 20 Business Services list

Earlier this year Delt Shared Services was awarded a 1 star ‘very good’ accreditation from the b-heard engagement survey which forms the list of Best Companies to Work For. And now, to add to the success, the organisation has been placed at 17th in the top 20 UK Business Services for 2021.

In a virtual event, hosted by the BBC’s Dan Walker, the Best Companies lists for the year were unveiled and businesses across the country were recognised for their commitment to their employees and overall workplace engagement.

Delt conducted the survey in February and achieved a record 75% engagement rate, which far exceeded any previous survey participation rate, with an overall result of 661.2 out of 1000. This score merits a ‘very good’ business to work for and attributes a 1-star rating.

Giles Letheren, CEO said; ‘I’m delighted that the work we have done on vision, values and culture has been reflected in a Best Companies accreditation and now a position on the top Business Services list. Our team have been truly exceptional over a challenging (Covid) year of Helping People do Amazing Things and being recognised for this, at our first try, shows that we take employee engagement seriously, even as the world of work has completely changed.’.

The b-heard rating system tracks companies on a scale of 0 to 1000. A score of 600 and above puts companies in their ‘one to watch’ category and from there a company can score between 1 and 3 stars which is considered the ‘best-of-the-best’.

Jane White, Chief People and Culture Officer added; “We are so pleased that we rated highly for ‘My Team’ as team morale is fundamental to wellbeing, belonging and job confidence. To also be awarded 1 star really is the icing on the cake for us but more importantly it is the staff feedback that will give us the information we need to make Delt an even better place to work”
