Sanctuary reaches finals at Lloyds Bank National Business Awards

By Andrew Pirie

​We’re thrilled to announce that Sanctuary Personnel has been selected as a finalist at this year’s Lloyds Bank National Business Awards.

What makes this announcement special is that we’ve been shortlisted within the Positive Social Impact Award category.

The award highlights the important role of private or PLC companies in working with the public and third sectors to address social challenges. It acknowledges the meaningful and sustainable social impact businesses make; through partnership, investment, pro-bono work, or employee-led initiatives.

Recognising Sanctuary’s social impact

We’ve been shortlisted for our efforts in delivering innovative solutions to some of the most pressing health and social care resourcing issues affecting frontline services.

James Rook, Managing Director of Sanctuary Personnel, said:

“Over the past year, we’ve evolved our services to go beyond what would usually be expected of a recruitment partner. We’re a critical friend to our local authority, NHS and third sector clients. Over the past 12 months, we’ve gone above and beyond to deliver exceptional work that has a direct social impact.

“To be recognised by the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards alongside other socially-conscious and progressive companies is a real honour.

“A huge thank you goes out to all clients of course. Without their willingness to embrace new ways of working, we wouldn’t be able to make the impact that we do.”

Placing people first

A core part of the submission was to show how, as a business, we support a culture that’s an advocate for positive social impact.
Placing People First is at the heart of everything we do. Every touchpoint we have with our colleagues in health and social care must add value to the public sector and wider community.

Our employees are supported to think innovatively and to present their ideas for change. Most recently, this has seen the launch of two new divisions – Innovate Services (our managed social work division) and MigrateHR.

In good company

Over 100 national businesses have made the finals across 12 categories. It has certainly been a busy year for entries despite the challenges everyone has faced. As the awards team say:

“We have been astounded by the quality of entries and we are honoured to be able to give these remarkable individuals and businesses a platform to have their stories heard and celebrated.”

A full list of the finalists can be found by visiting the awards website. We can’t wait to discuss our ethos and impact with the judges during the next stage of the awards process!
