Last year, University of Lincoln won the HR or Benefits Team of the Year award. The judges thought the team responded positively during the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic to move to a more digital and virtual world and way of working, making good use of its hubs and achieving a tricky pensions project at the same time.

At the ceremony, Ian Hodson, head of reward at the University of Lincoln, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to win this award. As a team, we’ve worked really hard this year in really challenging times to really rethink our benefits, to virtualise them and make them accessible, particularly around the wellbeing agenda.

“We’ve done some big projects this year: we’ve moved to pensions that have kept us financially sustainable, and also run virtual running clubs, virtual exercise classes and brought in recognition cards to keep our community connected. We’re absolutely delighted; a huge thank you on behalf of the University of Lincoln.”

The 20th annual Employee Benefits Awards ceremony will be held at the Honourable Artillery Company, London on Friday 24 June. Reward, benefits and HR professionals will have the chance to enjoy a champagne reception, three-course lunch and an after-party that will include live music, dodgems, a carousel and a big wheel in the venue’s private grounds.
