We were awarded this prestigious national award for our "Developing managers to manage sustainable employee engagement, health and wellbeing" project. This gathered evidence from a range of sources to understand how organisations can best foster positive manager behaviour. It looked at what organisations need to do to: a) provide effective management development programmes, b) support managers to transfer their learning into their day-to-day management approach and c) create an organisational context that supports this way of managing people, with the aim of achieving high levels of employee engagement, health and wellbeing.
