This cHeRries Award for Outstanding HR Director, sponsored by Wood, was to highlight an individual operating at executive level who has demonstrated outstanding performance, leadership and innovation in the last twelve months.

It was presented to Entier’s very own Elaine Ramage.

Judges chose Elaine for her work successfully leading the business and her department through significant resourcing activity, completed via TUPE transfer and an aggressive recruitment campaign in what proved to be exceptional circumstances as a result of the pandemic.

Their forward planning resulted in the organisation experiencing minimal impact in particular areas of the business when the pandemic arose and developed when others were perhaps working reactively.

Judges commented that Elaine’s professional and committed approach to human resources management set her apart.

Wood president of people and organisation Catherine Liebnitz said: “It was a pleasure to be able to get together in person to recognise the outstanding HR talent in our region.

“Wood was delighted to support the cHeRries and the Outstanding HR Director category which acknowledges the brilliant and innovative HR leadership who are shaping the future of HR in our industry.

“Congratulations to Elaine Ramage from Entier on winning this award.”
