The winners of the 2015 CIPD People Management Awards were announced on Tuesday 29 September 2015 at the glamorous Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London. Delivered by the CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development, in partnership with People Management Magazine, the awards are the most prestigious in the industry, recognising outstanding and innovative achievements in people management and development.

Achieve Breakthrough was established by Mike Straw in 2003, and today it’s expanded to over 30 consultants. Achieve Breakthrough helps organisations visibly raise their game through transformation programmes and culture change initiatives, unlocking the full potential of teams.

The consultancy now conducts two thirds of its work globally with some of the world’s biggest organisations across many industry sectors, including: FMCG (PepsiCo, Diageo), pharmaceuticals (Novartis, AstraZeneca), financial services (Amex, Lloyds TSB), healthcare (NHS Trusts) public sector (Councils, TfL) and technology (Microsoft, Oracle).

Mike Straw, CEO and Founder of Achieve Breakthrough said:
“We have been providing global organisations with new ways of thinking and acting to deliver better business and people performance since our inception, so it’s a real honour to be awarded the CIPD Consultancy of the Year for the second time in just three years.

This is the highest honour that we can receive from the professional body for HR and people development – and it illustrates the effectiveness of our transformational work for both domestic and global organisations.”

Supporting local communities and young talent has always been important to the consultancy. Achieve Breakthrough launched Inventing Futures in 2012, an organisation that provides young people with new ways of thinking and acting, shifting ambitions, mind sets and chosen behaviours to enable fulfilling lives. Achieve Breakthrough donates 20 per cent of its profits to Inventing Futures each year so it can continue its work with local authorities, commissioning bodies, and educators – who are committed to fulfilling the potential of young people across the UK.
