Connect2Luton 2023: Celebrating Success and Impact
As we prepare ourselves for a new year, we’re taking this opportunity to look back and reflect on the incredible year Connect2Luton has had in 2023. Our successes this year are a testament to our commitment and dedication to Luton, and ultimately enabling us to bring more local jobs to local people.
Awards and Recognition
It’s been a great year for awards and recognition at Connect2Luton, here’s some of our highlights:
- Double winner at the PPMA Excellence in People Management Awards 2023 – ‘Best Partnership/Collaboration’ and ‘Gold Award’
- Shortlisted for ‘Business of the Year’ at the Commercial Services Group Summer Awards
- Finalist at the LGC Workforce Awards – ‘Best Innovation in Recruitment’
- Winner at the British Recruitment Awards – ‘Public/Third Sector Recruitment Agency of the Year’
We’ve loved engaging with the community this year and have attended so many events where we’ve met a lot of amazing people within Luton. We’ve been to multiple job fairs, employability events for workers aged 50+, and more recently visited Barnfield College careers café for Older Workers Week in November. PLUS, we’ve had the honour of sponsoring the Luton Excellence Awards, attended the Reach Society Recognition Awards, and presented at the Luton Leaders Conference. What a busy year! We’ve already got lots planned for next year, and we hope to meet many more of you!
This year, we launched our TikTok! This has been a great success and allows us to give you an insight into what goes on behind closed doors. We’ve made videos with our Street Cleanser and Ground Maintenance teams, as well as with our own team, with one of our videos hitting over 56,000 views – thank you everyone for your support!
In August, we were delighted to welcome our new Business Support Apprentice, Aiza, to the team. Supporting Aiza on her apprenticeship has been rewarding all around, and she is the perfect addition to our lovely team.
We want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support this year - Connect2Luton wouldn’t be the same without it! We look forward to continuing to grow in 2024 and working together to make Luton a great place to live and work.
