SSCL Wins Engage Award for Best Business Transformation Strategy

It’s another award for SSCL, as we have been announced as Best Business Transformation Strategy winner at the prestigious Engage Awards this week! 

This latest accolade recognises SSCL’s approach to business transformation, outstanding transformation journey and the significant achievements during the last five years in terms of our people strategy and business process. 

The winners were announced on Monday night at an awards ceremony in London. We were up against Affinity Water, Alliance Manchester Business School, Aspen Healthcare, BT Business & Public Sector with Blue Sky Performance Improvement, Corona Energy, Dow Jones – The Wall Street Journal, IM Group, Midcounties Co-Operative / InMoment and The Insurance Emporium. 

SSCL was formed to enable public sector organisations to share a range of standard business support services through a common Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) platform, and, in turn, work to support the delivery of £1 billion of savings to Public Sector clients by 2020. 

SSCL’s achievements to date took an enormous collaborative effort from all parties involved to align people, processes and technology.

Our single operating platform and significant business transformation wasn’t just about a system or process changes, it was the beginning of SSCL’s development into a sustainable business providing service excellence to all of our clients. 

Jeanette Smith, Managing Director for SSCL Government said: “The award signifies the excellent teamwork in SSCL, the strength of our client relationships and our partnership with Government Shared Services. 

“Over the past five years we have consolidated from 17 offices into four Centres of Excellence and implemented a single operating platform for over 300,000 users. I am so pleased that this award recognises everyone’s hard work: I am so incredibly proud of my SSCL team for undertaking such a complex transformation programme whilst continuing to provide delivery excellence on a day to day basis. 

“Our amazing transformation has been unprecedented both in terms of size and scale and this award represents achieving a significant milestone in SSCL’s continuing evolution. It is testament to what an organisation can achieve as a collective, focused and determined team.” 

SSCL has scooped a number of awards this month, winning:

·       Best HR and Learning & Development Supplier 2018 in the prestigious CIPD People Management Annual Awards for its outstanding contribution to recruitment, vetting and project teamwork to support the resourcing challenges of the Ministry of Justice (MoJ)
