Is your boss simply the best?

DO you think you have the best boss? Then why not nominate her/him for a prestigious new award. The Boss of the Year aims to identify the many unsung heroes and heroines who use their positions to empower others in achieving career success. The awards recognise excellence in people leadership – the people who try harder to make sense for others, make work more meaningful, make workplaces safer and open up opportunities for as many as possible. By recognising and rewarding their success, the awards aim to encourage and foster an environment of excellence in management, creating a community of workplace leadership heroes and role models. The awards reward the very people who know the importance of rewarding others for a job well done. They create mentors for sound leadership. Above all, they pay tribute to those who understand that the success of their staff is in direct proportion -to their own success as leaders. The awards are being sponsored by local companies – the Barnet Press, Click Return, Orchard Recruitment, Enterprise Enfield, The Recruitment Guy, Good Looking Optics, Panther Office Supplies, BlueCircle IT, Mostons, Martin Shepherd and DALMedia. The judging panel comprises Enfield North MP Nick de Bois, Enfield-born Sue Birley, sales office manager at DeVere Venues, Theobalds Park, Stephen Davy, founding director of Hoxton-based Stephen Davy Peter Smith architects, whose practices work at Carterhatch Primary School, in Carterhatch Lane, Enfield, leading to him becoming a school governor, Winchmore Hill chartered accountant Paul Moston and Michael Devane, of Martin Shepherd solicitors.
