The PPMA awards give us an opportunity to celebrate and share the fantastic work going on every day in your organisations.
Working in Public Service is increasingly demanding and challenging but the work of HR & OD colleagues ensures organisations succeed in delivering excellent services to all of our citizens which can also be highly rewarding.
The PPMA awards are an inspiring occasion for people to come together to share each others amazing achievements and take the time to applaud their hard work and the difference it has made.
