Opus Energy shortlisted for HR Excellence Awards
Opus Energy has been shortlisted at this year’s HR Excellence Awards, which is in its 18th consecutive year of honouring companies with an outstanding strategy for recruitment and employee development.
The Awards, which are run by the prestigious HR magazine, reward companies which place their people at the core of the business. Being shortlisted for the ‘Most effective recruitment and retention’ category is recognition of the positive impact that Opus Energy’s innovative recruitment and retention strategy has had on the company’s growth.
Annamarie Petsis Jones, Head of HR, Learning and Development at Opus Energy, comments: “We are thrilled to be considered for the HR Excellence Awards, which is a deserved accolade following Opus Energy’s achievements over the last year. Customer numbers have grown by 50,000 since 2011 alone, which has been mirrored by an increase in employees. Our robust recruitment and retention strategy has meant that we have been able to grow the team and find – and retain – employees who are able to offer an exceptional customer service.”
Results will be decided by a panel of judges, and announced at a gala awards dinner at the Hilton, Park Lane, London, on July 2nd.
