Strathclyde shortlisted for three UK awards

The University of Strathclyde has been shortlisted in three categories of the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards.

Strathclyde is in the running for the Workplace of the Year, Outstanding Employer Engagement Initiative, and Outstanding Strategic Planning Team categories of the national awards.

Strathclyde has enjoyed success in the awards in recent years, with the University’s Business Improvement Team winning the Outstanding Administrative Services Team in 2016. The Knowledge Exchange/Transfer Initiative of the Year award also went to Strathclyde in 2014, for the University’s Engage with Strathclyde outreach programme.

The Workplace of the Year award is being made to ‘an institution showing exceptional commitment to creating a positive environment for both incoming and existing staff’. The Outstanding Employer Engagement Initiative ‘recognises a strategic and innovative approach to delivering employers’ workforce development needs‘, and Strathclyde’s submission for the award concerns its collaborative research programme with global healthcare company GSK.

The Outstanding Strategic Planning Team award is for ‘exceptional performance from a team, or individual that has made a significant and demonstrable impact on strategic change across the university’.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on 22 June.

Strathclyde has also been successful in the overall Times Higher Education Awards, with four wins in the past six years: Research Project of the Year (2011); UK University of the Year (2012); Entrepreneurial University of the Year (2013) and Business School of the Year (2016).
