A huge congratulations to our Accounts Payable team for scooping a top prize at The Purchase to Pay Network Awards where they won Team of the Year 2018 in their category.

The judges applauded the team for their efficient ways of working and for saving money across the business.

Rae Sutton, Guinness Interim Director of Financial Services said: “I am so incredibly proud of the Payable team’s achievement. To have delivered these efficiencies is a real triumph. Their performance makes us a stronger business.”

Guinness Care Learning Academy

The Guinness Care Learning Academy has been shortlisted for the 2018 Housing Heroes awards in the ‘Central Services Team of the Year’ category.  This rewards a team that supports its colleagues’ professional development and their business’ desire to grow.

They were shortlisted because the induction programme they put together has received such strong feedback with 97% of delegates stating that the trainers were completely effective and 100% would recommend the training to others.

Lucy Porter Goff, Guinness Care Learning and Development Manager said, “The Learning Academy is having a fantastic impact on the induction and development of staff across Guinness Care.”

Estate Assistant, Malcolm McBride

Malcolm was shortlisted for an Inspire Award, in the Most Inspiring Role Model (40 and over) category. The awards promote a more diverse and inclusive culture in the construction, engineering and housing industry by celebrating those leading the way.

74 year-old Malcolm is an extraordinary role model to the mobile estates team who are predominantly a younger group. He leads the way, sharing his knowledge and experiences.

Malcolm also works alongside apprentices, inspiring those who are just starting out in their own careers. One of our apprentices recently commented that Malcolm is “a massive influence on me wanting to further my own career in horticulture.”
