A few weeks ago, we were thrilled to discover that we had been shortlisted for the This Can Happen Awards 2021 in two categories – Best Mental Health Consultancy and Best Covid-19 Company Response – External.
This year, there were a record-breaking number of entries submitted to the 26 judges across 17 categories. Which is why we were even more over the moon to be named as ‘Highly Commended’ in the Best Mental Health Consultancy Award during the live-streamed awards ceremony that took place today (24 June).
Alexis Powell-Howard our MD said: “We are so thrilled to have been awarded Highly Commended for Mental Health Consultancy of the Year – especially as not every category named a Highly Commended business. To be recognised on the This Can Happen Awards is incredible. We were in amazing company and feel totally inspired by the incredible work being done across the globe.
“To be recognised alongside these truly phenomenal, national and global, companies really is the biggest compliment. To have the work we are doing at Fortis commended at such a level is testament to all the hard work our dedicated team puts into everything that they do.”
This Can Happen Awards were launched in 2019 to celebrate and recognise companies and individuals who have shown excellence in their approach towards positive mental health for their employees and colleagues. Previous winners include Accenture, Legal & General, National Grid, Wave, Salesforce, Fidelity, and Royal Mail Group.
