A north-east charity has made the final shortlist for a top business accolade at this year’s Investors in People Awards.

North East Sensory Services (NESS), which supports thousands of people with visual and hearing impairments, is nominated for the Third Sector Employer of the Year award.

The Investors in People Awards celebrate the very best organisations and individuals from around the world across various organisational, people, wellbeing and leadership categories.

NESS chief executive Graham Findlay told how it was a “privilege” to be nominated in what was a record-breaking year for entries involving over 300 organisations.

Each year, hundreds of organisations from the UK and abroad battle it out to take home one of the sought-after trophies to show their award-winning commitment to #MakeWorkBetter.

The winners will be announced at a black-tie gala ceremony on Tuesday, November 15, at Old Billingsgate in London.

Graham Findlay, chief executive of NESS, said:

“It is a privilege to be shortlisted for this award. It is a clear indication of the dedication and hard work of the management team and of everyone in the organisation at such a difficult time. Our team did all they could to maintain vital services for the 6,500 blind and deaf people whom we support, and to reduce isolation. Our dedicated staff team are an amazing group of people, and this is an outstanding achievement that we are all very proud of.”

Paul Devoy, chief executive of Investors in People, said:

“In what has been the biggest and most competitive year so far, it always makes me feel immensely proud to see so many fantastic organisations and individuals staking their claim to be the best. And every year, the entries do get more and more competitive and the judging even tighter. Reaching the final shortlist is a testament to the amazing commitment these organisations are making to make work better for their people, and they truly deserve this recognition.”
