North London Partners Shared Services staff awards 2023

A large group of people holding their awards and certificates

Around 100 staff gathered to recognise the outstanding efforts of their colleagues in our corporate shared services partnership at Enfield Civic Centre on Tuesday 24 October.

Staff were nominated by members of their own departments across 10 categories in the first-time awards, which are to become an annual event.

The awards were hosted by Robert Prince, managing director for North London Partners Shared Services (NLPSS). Before announcing the winners, he told staff: “It is wonderful to be here today to celebrate the outstanding achievements of our staff. We had over 100 nominations from across all the teams, which is an incredible number, and whether you win today or not, you should all be proud of your hard work over the last year.”

Team of the year award went to the hiring team who were chosen for their collaborative working and the positive impact they have had on the experience of NLPSS partners and colleagues, whilst improving the performance of the service. Runners-up were the occupational health team.

Taking the accolade of employee of the year was Charlie Yazgan for exceeding what would normally be expected of him in his role, in particular helping to reduce the Royal Free London’s nursing vacancy rate and reducing time to hire candidates by more than 50%. The runner-up was Irina Ilieva.
