Apex Hotels has collected a top industry accolade at this year’s HR Network Scotland National Awards, scooping HR Team of the Year.
The hotel’s HR team, which oversees around 1,050 employees across 13 locations including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, London, and the newly launched Apex City of Bath Hotel, was recognised for its ability to support its workforce within the fast paced, labour intensive industry.
The annual awards, which took place at a glittering ceremony at the Glasgow Hilton Hotel, were organised by human resource specialists HR Network Scotland and celebrated the very best organisations within the HR industry in Scotland.
Picking up HR Team of the Year, Apex Hotels was praised for the way it delivers its HR Strategy, ensuring the brand employs customer centric people, ranging from those just leaving school to those looking to further their experience within the hospitality sector.
In addition, Apex Hotels was also nominated for Talent Management Programme of the Year, for the team’s strong links with educational institutions and their Pre Apprenticeship programme.
The Pre Apprenticeship programme, which was launched in collaboration with Craigroyston High School, promotes hospitality as a viable and rewarding career option and helps pupils into a sustainable career path within the industry.
Robert Allan, Human Resources Director at Apex Hotels, said: “Being recognised in this way is a testament to the hard work the team have been carrying out over the last twelve months.
“We are thrilled that we were nominated for two awards at this year’s HR Network Awards, and to win HR Team of the Year is just incredible.
“We were up against some very well-known organisations in Scotland, across all sectors, so to be a winner on the night is a huge achievement and one that we are really proud of.”
The Awards Gala Dinner attracted over 800 guests from the world of HR and People Development and Management in Scotland and is regarded as the ‘must attend’ event in the Scottish business calendar.
