Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been nominated for a 2017 HSJ Award in the category of Staff Engagement. The Trust was nominated for its Ask HR mobile phone application which launched in February 2017.
The Ask HR app has revolutionised the way staff at Kingston Hospital engage with their HR department, as it provides easy to use, round-the-clock support on the Trust’s employment policy, wellbeing and entitlements. The HR ‘self-service’ tool allows staff members to find FAQs on common HR queries, book appointments and send enquiries to the HR team.
Kelvin Cheatle, Director of Workforce at Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said:
“We’re delighted to be nominated for this nationally recognised award. The area of Staff Engagement is important to the Trust and we’ve had great feedback from our staff saying that the Ask HR app has helped them with their HR queries.”
The awards ceremony takes place on Wednesday 22nd November at the Intercontinental O2 in London.
