Bright Purple Takes Top Honour at Scotland Institute of Directors Awards
Bright Purple Resourcing has celebrated success at this year’s Institute of Directors (IoD) Scotland Awards after its founder and CEO won the director award for Enabling the Effective Use of Skills. As well as being shortlisted for the Edinburgh and Lothians regional award, CEO Nick Price was also a finalist in the overall Scotland director of the year category.
Price’s award for effective use of skills followed the launch of the Bright Purple Academy last November. Based within the firm’s Edinburgh headquarters, the Academy provides internal and external training and also delivers an important CSR role through the Bright Futures programme, an initiative helping young people who are currently not in employment, education or training.
Commenting on the award, Nick Price said: “Although it may have been handed over to me, this prestigious IoD Award is really for the people who make up Bright Purple. It may be a cliché to say this but the truth is that without the commitment of the team here none of the great success we’ve had in launching and running the Academy would have materialised. For their sake, I really am pleased to have accepted the award and I feel confident on behalf of our great team that we will achieve much more through both the company and Academy going forward.”
