The award for ‘NHS Digital award for HR Analytics’ was won by the NWSSP Workforce, Education and Development Services (WEDS) Workforce Information Team, for their ‘Interactive Benchmarking Tools for Workforce Redesign’ initiative.

The project saw the team utilising the Microsoft Excel software platform to create and develop four user-friendly benchmarking data tools to help the users of NHS Wales’ organisations easily interact with an all-Wales ESR data set, without having to be Excel experts or having to access the ESR Data Warehouse itself.

Over the past 4 years the Workforce Information Team has developed its expertise and worked within NHS Wales to enable easy access to workforce information. I am delighted that their hard work has been recognised at a national level.

I am delighted for the Shared Services teams who have been externally recognised at the national Healthcare People Management Association awards. It is a testament to all their hard work and dedication over the last few years, continually striving to innovate and improve the non clinical support systems that help underpin how NHS Wales works. It is also important that we recognise the collaboration with our health board partners who work with us on a day to day basis to implement the changes and improvements.
