UKRD’s Chief Executive Officer William Rogers has been shortlisted in the 2013 HR Excellence Awards as Most People Focussed CEO for 2013.
The award represents the gold standard for people strategy and it is believed that he is the first commercial radio executive to have been shortlisted for such an award.
Judges, themselves either HR Directors or CEO’s, are presently reviewing the short list and will decide who wins over the next few days.
William told RadioToday: “I was very surprised to have been shortlisted and had no idea that my name had been added to the shortlist of those being judged by the organisers.
“I’m very lucky that I work with such a terrific bunch of people and simply being recognised in this way, whatever the result, is a tribute to all the managers in our company who work incredibly hard to build a values based culture where people are the first consideration and our most important asset.”
The results will be announced at an Awards Ceremony at The Park Hilton in London next week.
