Economist's Change Ambassadors

Screen Shot 2013-03-12 at 18.34.33.png  I love the variety of things I seem somehow to get involved in these days.

One interesting programme I'm supporting this year is the Economist's new Change Ambassadors awards - open to individuals who have driven change in their organisations, rather than the usual thing or recognising the organisations these people work within:


"Sometimes employees just don't get the recognition they deserve. We can change that.

Change Ambassadors is about recognising those employees who, often behind the scenes, have helped execute successful change- big or small.

The competition is for organisations, divisions or departments of all sizes.

If you or a colleague have implemented change that has produced tangible business outcomes, then you qualify.

Why Enter?

  • Get national recognition for you and your company
  • Win an executive seminar at one of the UK's top business schools
  • Enhance your industry profile
  • Have your achievements viewed by our well-respected judges
  • Ensure your hard work over the past two years is celebrated at the Awards Ceremony on Thursday May 16th 2013

The hard work has already been done. It's easy to enter. Make sure you get the recognition you deserve."


Neat idea huh?

I'm going to be a judge for the people & culture category of the awards - recognising the successful execution of change initiative within a company’s workforce or culture (e.g. a person who successfully implemented a health and wellbeing programme; person who made the company more attractive to universities and graduates etc).

If you're interested in applying, you can do so here.

By the way, in case you've been confused by the picture - I do get involved in an interesting activities, but I'm not, of course, Unilever's CHRO! - I'm sure the Economist will have that changed soon!


Also, don't forget about my current competition for tickets to attend (and blog at) the Economist's Talent Management Summit this Sumer!
