Tobi Collett, Human Resources Business Partner for EMEA and Global Accounts at Allegis Global Solutions (AGS), won the ‘Emerging Leader in HR Award’ at the prestigious 8th Annual HRD Awards on February 6th, 2018 in Birmingham, UK.
“Tobi has not only excelled, but went above and beyond in her attitude towards development,” said AGS Executive Director of Human Resources, Sara Babin. “She is a proven leader who demonstrates strategic focus, business partnering, and superb emotional intelligence. This award is well-deserved.”
Collett joined AGS three and half years ago after spending 15 years in human resources. She is responsible for all HR initiatives in AGS’ EMEA region, including regulatory compliance, HR analytics, employee relations matters, and workforce engagement.
In addition to leading HR in EMEA, Collett also heads the firm’s Transfer of Undertakings Protection of Employment Regulations (TUPE) efforts. As the TUPE lead, she is currently responsible for protecting the organisation and the people affected as it is in the process of transferring 2,300 employees after a large client acquisition in 2016. So far in her tenure AGS has not had any TUPE claims and has a high success rate of employees staying with AGS due to Collett’s management.
Prior to joining AGS, Collett spent 11 years at Royal Mail where she led all employment legislation and diversity engagement and development for the organisation of more than 180,000 employees. Notably, she set up a disability help-line which saved Royal Mail £350,000 in litigation risk within its first year of operation.
