Titanic, Belfast provided the ideal venue for the Irish News Workplace and Employment Awards 2012. Organisations from a range of industries and from across the public, private and charitable sectors were shortlisted across 18 different categories. The list of well-known companies entering the awards shows the high regard in which they are held and highlights the different qualities and values, including commitment to innovation, personal development of employees and providing a happy, healthy workplace.

Todds Leap were delighted to be awarded joint winner in the Disability Best Practice category, along with the Belfast City Council. Allstate Northern Ireland – which a year ago was the inaugural ‘Champion’ – was the night’s only multiple winner, claimed awards in two of the 18 categories. 
West Belfast-based Delta Print & Packaging claimed the Right Place to Work prize for medium-sized organisations. Ulster GAA took the Workplace Excellence Award, while Copeland Ltd in Co. Tyrone was named Best Place to Work. Among the other first-time winners were Royal Mail, First Derivatives, Stage Crew and Nitec Solutions. Little Wing Pizzeria fended off a number of rivals to win the Managing Talent category for small businesses. 
 
“It’s been a record year not only for the numbers entering but for the range of sectors represented and we’re delighted that this year’s Workplace & Employment Awards are yet another runaway success,” Irish News editor Noel Doran said. 
Employment and learning minister Dr Stephen Farry, who was a top-table guest at the function, told the 450-plus audience: ”The aims of the Irish News Workplace & Employment Awards go hand in hand with the direction set out in my Department’s Skills Strategy for Northern Ireland, and I’m delighted to be continuing our long association with this initiative.” 
 
Nick Hewer, who is Lord Sugar’s right-hand man on The Apprentice and who also hosts Countdown each day on Channel 4, was the after-dinner speaker and regaled guests with a captivating and humour-laced insight into the business world of Sir Alan Sugar. The event, hosted by award-winning BBC journalist Karen Patterson, was supported by six key business partners in Tughans, Liberty IT, Tesco, PwC, Kingsbridge Private Hospital and Investors in People, and was endorsed by key industry bodies the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD).
