Belinda Joyce-Ludlow, Payroll Manager at Sunrise Senior Living, was shortlisted for the “Best Boss 2014” award, following a surprise nomination from her colleague Suzanne Foody. Belinda had no idea she had been entered for consideration, and was delighted to receive the news via email that she was a finalist.
Belinda was praised for her supportive management style and for her initiative encouraging colleagues to improve their health by taking a 30 minute walk each day.
The Payroll World Awards ceremony, which brought together over 400 payroll professionals from across the UK, was a fantastic opportunity for Sunrise staff to celebrate the hard work of their colleague. The nomination was also a testament to the wonderful working relationships that exist at the leading care provider.
An overwhelmed Belinda said:
“This shortlisting is for the whole team. I work with a fantastic group of people who are very supportive and understanding of each other and get the job done no matter what; that makes me the boss I am today.
“Our work is important for supporting our colleagues, who work tirelessly every day to deliver the highest standard of care for residents in Sunrise’s 27 communities”.
