Employer of the Year Campaign

Employer of the Year Award

For several years Epilepsy Scotland has offered an award to small and larger employers who go above and beyond existing equality and discrimination legislation to support an employee with epilepsy. Our campaign reveals examples of practical help we want other Scottish organisations to put into practice in their own workplace. Recent award winners (2013) were Canongate Youth Project in Edinburgh and Argyll and Bute Council.  Both organisations evidenced the outstanding support they provide to an employee with epilepsy.   Former Cabinet Secretary for Health and Wellbeing Alex Neil MSP joined our chief executive Lesslie Young to honour this best practice and he presented the winners with a trophy in a special award ceremony at the charity’s annual Glasgow Wags dinner.   Canongate Youth Project’s arts and crafts worker Paul Scott and Argyll and Bute Council web developer Helen Butler nominated their employers for the award.  The judging panel included Serco occupational health medical director Dr Freddie Westbrook, recruitment specialists director Allan Dickson and Lesslie Young.  Read the press release and view their examples of best practice.
