As part of the ongoing charity work Jellybean does, we work alongside Springboard who specialise in promoting the hospitality industry and attracting new talent.
On Monday 29th November, five Jellybeans battled the freezing cold weather to attend the Springboard Awards for Excellence at Lancaster London.
Now in their 8th year, the Springboard Awards for Excellence celebrate and reward inspiring people, organisations and initiatives – those that work hard to elevate the profile of the hospitality industry as an employer and attract and retain talent.
The evening saw 600 industry experts come together to enjoy great food, great company, great entertainment and celebrate great success. The ceremony was hosted by Champagne Taittinger’s Justin Llewelyn and vocalist Shelle Luscombe entertained the guests with some classic tunes.
The awards were split into three categories: Promoting Careers, Attracting People and Best Employment Practice. The evening was then rounded up by the Chris Beaumont Special Award, for the most outstanding contribution to Springboard aims.
