Cambridge Judge Business School Executive Education client nominated for HR Excellence Awards 2014.

Excellence AwardsStonehage Ltd, an international multi-family office, who is a client of Executive Education at Cambridge Judge Business School has been nominated for the HR Excellence Awards 2014, in the category for ‘Most successful change management strategy’, where the Cambridge Leadership Programme is seen as the focal point of the change programme.

This category is open for organisations that have successfully completed and implemented people-focused change programme. Entries can include the companies who brought in external resources to achieve a positive outcome.
The shortlisted entry – The Stonehage Leadership Development Programme – was especially designed for Stonehage Ltd and was carried out in July last year. During the short course Stonehage leaders were involved in discussions on leadership, strategy, high performance teams, talent management and change management.

Kate Griffiths-Lambeth, Global Head of Human Resources at Stonehage Ltd, said the CJBS Executive Education programme has been very well received by all and has helped with the global strategy. She said:

“For us, it was crucial that we partnered with a leading business school that could engage with Stonehage’s top global talent, not just connecting at an academic level but also challenging, inspiring and motivating exceptional individuals into enhancing their personal performance. Stonehage leaders come from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines and Cambridge Judge has helped us to develop a shared language and approach that has resulted in our becoming better at leading teams and, through them, achieving strategic objectives for ourselves and our clients.”

Tim Bellis, Head of the Professional Service Firm area, said:

We are delighted our client has been nominated for these prestigious awards. This is an important acknowledgement of the impact our custom programmes have on our clients and we’re looking forward to working with more organisations like Stonehage in the future.

The HR Excellence Awards recognise the best people in the HR community, who ‘push the boundaries, those who dare and challenge convention’.

The winners of the awards will be announced in Gala dinner in London on 1 July 2014. The other shortlisted nominees include NATO, Fujitsu, Hilton Worldwide, Barclays Bank, Royal Mail, JP Morgan, McDonalds Restaurants, British Gas and others.
