Ceridian UK wins 2014 Partnership Award from Whitbread

(Cision Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Ceridian UK, one of the UK’s leading HCM technology and service providers, has won a 2014 Partnership Award from Whitbread, the UK’s leading hospitality company – owners of Premier Inn, Costa, Beefeater, Brewers Fayre, Table Table and Taybarns.

Amanda Brady, HR Director for Premier Inn and Shared Services at Whitbread commented "Whitbread works with a number of external partners to support our core business processes.  We look for proven experience in these fields and for partners who share the same values as Whitbread.  Each year we recognise a small number of these partners who demonstrate a strong collaborative approach which really supports our long term business goals.  These are highly prestigious awards and we are delighted to be able to recognise our Ceridian partners in this way.  The relationship we have developed with Ceridian is one of mutual trust and long term thinking which drives innovation in both our businesses." Doug Sawers, managing director of Ceridian UK, said: “We are very proud to win this 2014 Partnership Award. It is tremendous recognition for us, as each year only one or two out of the hundreds of major suppliers to Whitbread receive such an award.

“This acknowledgement is incredibly significant as Whitbread sees Ceridian as a true partner with whom to grow and to develop new solutions. We are viewed as an innovative and open partner, prepared to share exciting and relevant future plans in a most collegiate way.

“The core Whitbread delivery teams, mainly based at our offshore service centre in Mauritius and our flagship HR shared service centre in Glasgow deserve huge credit.

“Our relationship with Whitbread is a great example of how we strive to work with all customers. Delivery of consistent top quality trusted service and partnership, combined with innovative plans and technology for the future. We are passionate about learning from, and sharing with, our leading customers to help us shape our future solutions and bring innovation to the market.” Notes to Editors: Whitbread PLC is the owner of the UK’s favourite hotel chain, Premier Inn and the UK’s favourite coffee shop, Costa as well as restaurant brands, Beefeater, Brewers Fayre, Table Table and Taybarns.
