Last week the Great Place to Work Institute held their annual UK Best Workplaces awards ceremony. Companies that had been shortlisted for one of a number of special awards, as well as the overall Best Place to Work award, attended the glamorous ceremony, held at the Plaisterers Hall, London Wall. Ashridge sponsored the Learning and Development Award. We were delighted to present it to NetApp, a forward-thinking company that positions L&D at the highest level of strategic importance. Research Director, Vicki Culpin, presented the award, having selected the winner from a competitive shortlist together with Shirine Voller and Ellen Pruyne.
