UK - Barbara Murphy, Cluster HR Director for Hilton London Heathrow Airport and Hilton Reading Hotel won Hilton Metro Region's prestigious People Excellence award. This award recognises either an individual manager or a human resources team that has adopted a unique approach to people management and development.

The judges looked for entries from an exceptional leader or an exceptional HR team who has unlocked the effort and potential from its team members through effective employee engagement. Entries demonstrate evidence of proactive leadership, excellent levels of communication, and a strong sense of community focus centred on Hilton shared values.

Barbara went on to win this award through her hard work setting up the successful Hilton Chef Apprenticeship scheme and FAB - a scheme for up and coming team members to stand out and become supervisors before going on to bigger and better things in Hilton. Both schemes are aimed also at helping youngsters in our local comminities to develop and look at careers in both the Food & Beverage and Kitchen Brigade. Even if the students do not choose to apply to Hilton when leaving school, they could potentially be the next Diamond Hilton HHonors member.
