Congratulations are in order for two BHF colleagues on being recognised by HR Magazine! Now in its 15th year, HR Most Influential, in partnership with HireRight, recognises the HR practitioners and thinkers who go above and beyond their day job to advance the HR profession and share best practice with the wider HR community. We are delighted to share that both Kerry Smith, our BHF Executive Director of People and Organisational Development, and Grace Mansah-Owusu, BHF Talent Consultant, have achieved an HR Most Influential Practitioner Award amongst only 36 in the UK. Speaking about the awards, Kerry said: “Absolutely delighted and thrilled that both Grace and I have been awarded HR Most Influential Practitioner recognition. As a peer and industry nominated and judged award, it is a great tribute to the work of the BHF and the influence we both bring within our roles and externally across sectors; particularly in light of the challenges which people functions have faced over the last two years. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us and the BHF.”
