We're supporting an awards night to celebrate the best public sector workers in important local services such as schools, libraries, GP clinics, health centres, leisure and sport services.
We'll be sponsoring the Oldham Top Awards in early 2020, which will highlight the hard work done by public sector staff in the borough of Oldham, Greater Manchester, where our head office and manufacturing site is based and many of our staff live.
The Top Awards will take place at Oldham's Queen Elizabeth Hall on February 7th 2020 when the judging panel will unveil the individuals and teams who really make a difference to residents or colleagues at work. Awards categories cover improved health and wellbeing in the workplace, front line services, leadership, teamwork, employees, young employees and community engagement.
The ultimate winners will be those staff who best represent the council's values and behaviours. These include accountability, working together, taking ownership, promoting change and delivering high performances.
Dan Mounsey, marketing manager at HPP, said: "The Top Awards celebrate great performances of individuals and teams at work across the public sector. Although HPP is a private sector manufacturing business, we recognise the importance of celebrating good work in the public sector locally through sponsoring these awards.
"As a proud Oldham-based company employing many local people, we play a vital role in the local economy and the community. So, we are delighted to support great initiatives like the Oldham Top Awards and look forward to the ceremony in February.
Dan added: "We are also looking forward to catching-up with the Leader of Oldham Council, Cllr Sean Fielding, who will be greeting sponsors at the ceremony. He visited our HQ earlier this year to officially open our second production facility for vinyl-wrapped doors."
Our company and staff support a range of community and charity projects through sponsorship, fundraising, volunteering, education and skills programmes. For example, we recently supported the Oldham Jobs Fair, where employers highlighted careers, apprenticeship and training opportunities to people of all ages. Other recent community activities have included supporting sponsored walks and runs for good causes."
