The inaugural BH Star Awards have won the backing of more sponsors, with headline sponsor Shorefield Holidays also supporting the Investing in People category.

Shorefield Holidays operates eight holiday and leisure parks in the BH postcode and New Forest area, and as a family owned business, has itself won awards for its parks, facilities, holidays, training and staff.

The independent awards were launched to honour and bring public recognition for varied achievements and positive contributions from those professionals working across the hospitality, tourism and retail sector. Covering the BH postcode areas – Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole and Wimborne, plus the surrounding towns and villages – entrants may work in tourism, retail and hospitality. A celebratory semi-finalist event will follow, culminating in a gala dinner in March 2019.

The Investing in People award will recognise what has led to being an attractive employer through dedication to training and development. Judges will be assessing those who have worked with groups and individuals, focusing particularly on how training has supported people who may have found it difficult to gain employment in the past.

Sue Lilley, Shorefield’s head of HR said: “As a family run business we truly understand the importance of our employees and the key place they hold in ensuring we deliver great guest experiences. Training, mentoring and supporting our staff is critical to our success. We not only hold our own annual staff awards, but also have the Dr Pollock Academy, named in honour of our founder, which promotes and supports rising stars of the future and ensures we help guide their careers, allowing them to flourish.”
