A press release:

National deaf services provider, Clarion, is celebrating after winning the Supply Chain Partner of the Year category at the prestigious Employment Related Services Association awards.

The Employment Related Services Association (ERSA) is the trade body for organisations delivering services within the Welfare to Work sector and Clarion beat off competition from 170 other organisations to claim the award.

Boosted by endorsements from six of its national customers, Clarion was recognised for the innovative approach it takes to supporting deaf and hard of hearing people on the government’s Work Programme.

Clarion uses a completely freelance workforce to supply Prime Contractors with Communication and Employment Consultants (CECs) who are qualified communication professionals with employment advisor skills and knowledge. This entrepreneurial and unique service has turned tradition on its head, found people jobs and ensured Clarion has become the biggest company of its kind in the country. 

Clarion’s National Operational Manager Bob Marsh said: “Even being nominated for the award was a huge achievement but to be recognised ahead of so many other innovative companies is fantastic for the business. It is testament to the unique employment solution that we have developed and the extraordinary customer service we have established with our partners that we are able to make sure the Work Programme is effective for deaf and hard of hearing people.”

It has been a triumphant period for Clarion after its Head of Business Development, Cheryl Cullen, was shortlisted for the ‘No Boundaries’ category in the Microsoft Dynamics Change Ambassadors Programme.

The award recognises individuals within an organisation who, through their skills, efforts and vision, have led significant change for their business and Cheryl was one of five who were recognised for their contributions.

Cheryl said: “I am thrilled to have been nominated but I really couldn’t have achieved the change without the support of my Business Development Team and the value-driven staff at Clarion. Everyone was excited to get on board and support an idea for change which had such a high social return for deaf and hard of hearing people.
