Winder Power HR Manager Kerry Fennelly has been awarded Best MIY Collaboration at the annual Made in Yorkshire Awards.
The Made in Yorkshire Awards celebrate manufacturing excellence across Yorkshire. The award ceremony took place in November at the Malmaison Hotel in Leeds, where Made in Yorkshire members and guests gathered to celebrate achievements made throughout the year with the hope of winning one of five award categories: Longest Serving Member, Young Inventor, Best MIY Collaboration, Biggest Change and Most Engaged Member.
Winder Power HR Manager, Kerry Fennelly, secured the ‘Best MIY Collaboration’ Award (“Uniting Industry – Creating a Lasting Legacy”) due to sharing HR Best Practice with ActionPlas and her continuing input to the MIY Skills Working Groups.
The collaboration of the two began after a Made in Yorkshire networking meeting hosted by ActionPlas. Head of HR for ActionPlas, Ruth Gosnay, and Kerry recognised the benefits in working together, as they can share experiences and act as a second opinion for each other without needing to recruit additional staff.
In the future, Kerry and Ruth hope to join together employees at both ActionPlas and Winder Power in projects such as ‘Lunch and Learn’ sessions.
