I first met Sally at the ideasUK Conference in November 2001 and was instantly hit by her passion for the Bupa ideas and recognition programme. From that first meeting, I went back to the organisation I was employed by full of ideas of on how we could copy Bupa’s model. Over the next 8 years Sally was always willing to share her knowledge with anyone who was interested in Employee Engagement and I have pointed many a manager in her direction for advice.
Last year, Sally was awarded a fellowship from ideasUK for all her hard work promoting ideas, innovation and employee engagement. Sally being modest as usual was embarrassed at getting the fellowship but it was fully deserved.
I hope after taking a rest over the next few weeks, Sally will continue to be involved with ideasUK and continue to pass on the knowledge she has to the next generation of Reward and Recognition Managers.
