ADETIQ IS VICTORIOUS AT GSA AWARDS 2016Nov 11, 2016
2016 has been a great year for the team at Adetiq, and what a fantastic way to round off the year than with a glitzy awards ceremony, celebrating the very best in business outsourcing.
On 10th November, the newly branded GSA UK Awards (formerly NOA Awards) was held in the 5* Intercontinental Hotel, Park Lane, London.
The ceremony brought together more than 350 members of the leading outsourcing service providers, advisors and buyers. Best practice was rewarded and celebrated as the efforts of organisations and teams who have demonstrated excellence in the sourcing world in 2015/16 were duly recognised.
Adetiq was shortlisted for a record seven awards, making Adetiq the company with the most finalist positions out of all organisations entered. Adetiq took away the last and most prestigious award of the night;
'Outsourcing Works: Award for Delivering Business Value'
This award is associated with proving that outsourcing works and showcasing where an outsourcing solution has delivered high value, high volume multi-faceted benefits that could not have been otherwise achieved to the same level.
Kerry Hallard, CEO of the GSA UK, said –
“This was without a doubt the most competitive year ever in terms of submissions. Those who attended the awards ceremony were given the inside track on the very best examples of technology in outsourcing, but also relationship and contract management, innovation, service delivery and collaboration.
I’d like to congratulate all those organisations who made the shortlist in the first place and, of course, the eventual category winners. This year we introduced an additional level in the judging process with the live presentations, which brought fabulous new insights to the projects and judging process. I would like to extend my appreciation to everyone who attended the event and roundly applauded all those businesses who took part."
Adetiq won the prestigious award for its work with client Sport England. Together Sport England and Adetiq have revolutionised the way that Sport England manages its facitilites database and the way that data is collected and maintained. Initiatives have been put in place which has driven down costs, enhanced the quality of the data and improved accessibility. An effective collaborative working relationship has been established between the two organisations, which has fostered a trusted environment and has an open approach to ideas generation and innovation.
Lilah Walker, Head of Marketing and Sales, Adetiq said -
"Adetiq has been working with Sport England for just over a year, and in that short period of time the team have achieved outstanding results against the KPI's for the programme, as well as forging exemplary working practices between the two organisations. Not only is the programme achieving huge success in terms of the business deliverables, but the trusted team-working across organisational borders is something all outsourcing programmes should aspire to achieve.
With effective collaboration and trust, and a commitment from all stakeholders to deliver the very best solution, outsourcing really comes into its own, not just in terms of driving down costs, but also in terms of adding huge business value. Our clients from Sport England joined us at the GSA awards evening last night, it was very special to celebrate success and industry recognition together, the whole team should be very proud of their achievements."

About Sport England
Sport England is the governmental department for community sports in England. From traditional team sports to activities like walking or going to the gym – Sport England is building an active nation that caters for everyone.
In May 2016 Sport England launched their current strategy and outlined the work they will do between 2017 and 2021 to increase the number of people getting active. It's Sport England's response to the Government's Sporting Future strategy, which was published in December 2015.
Sport England's vision is that everyone in England, regardless of age, background or ability, feels able to take part in sport or activity. Some might be fit and talented, but others won’t be so confident.
Sport England will contribute to the government's strategy by working to:
- Increase the number of people in England taking part in sport and activity and decrease the number of people who are physically inactive
- Increase the proportion of young people (11-18) who have a positive attitude to sport and being active
- Make sure public facilities are used fully and effectively to get maximum use from communities
- Increase the number of children who are physically literate – i.e. confident and competent in sport and activity
- Increase the number of adults using the great outdoors for exercise and wellbeing
- Contribute to UK and home nation performance in major sporting events at home and abroad (through our various projects to support talented individuals)
- Increase investment in sport from sources outside the public sector
- Increase the number of people volunteering in sport at least twice in the last year
- Make sure volunteers are from a wider range of backgrounds and lifestyles to ensure this group represents society as a whole
