Wolseley UK has won an HR award for its work on attracting, developing and retaining employees.

The plumbing and heating distributor was shortlisted in the Personnel Today Awards in three categories: Excellence in Learning and Development, Managing Change and Talent Management, before going on to win in the latter category.

Judges said they were “impressed by the winning organisation’s development programme and employee engagement across a dispersed workforce”.

Nick Scott, head of employee engagement at Wolseley UK, said: “I am extremely proud that our work on talent management has been recognised. We want to become the employer of choice, and this award demonstrates we have come some way in achieving that, along with reaffirming our commitment to attracting and developing the best employees in the industry.”

The Personnel Today Awards 2013 were held on 18 November at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London and hosted by comedian Alexander Armstrong.
