As part of its participation, PEOPLECERT sponsored the Service Innovation of the year award, which, through a judging panel that consisted of PEOPLECERT experts amongst leading professionals, was awarded to H.M. Revenue & Customs, and which, according to Mr. Byron Nicolaides, PEOPLECERT’s Chairman and CEO, ‘…was the one that was characterized by its ability to design, implement and measure a process that not only improved the specific organisation’s operational efficiency, but, more importantly, can become a best practice example for other organisations, within both the public and private sector. This is what innovation is about and this is what our industry should continue to champion’.
