Mark Heasman, Provide Community CEO and Nicky Paris, ETS Director and Client Partner

In partnership with Expert Training Systems (ETS), health and social care organisation Provide Community has been announced as a finalist for the Employee Engagement Award at the Association for Business Psychology (ABP) Awards.

As part of an ambitious employee engagement strategy, Social Enterprise Provide Community reached out to the Surrey-based business to help support its growth strategy and enhance employee engagement.

ETS, which uses a simple but effective business psychology approach to its services, became an extension of the Provide Community team as they created a tailored and purposeful approach to employee engagement. The project was an outstanding success, delivering significant improvements in employee engagement.

Their collaboration has now been recognised in the 2023 ANP Awards, shortlisted in the category for Employee Engagement, which celebrates organisations that facilitate outstanding improvements to employee engagement levels.


Founded in 2014, the ABP Awards celebrate and showcase levels of excellence in business psychology that have been successful in delivering outstanding results in the workplace. The awards attract entries from the UK’s leading public and private organisations, with 2023 finalists including NatWest, the NHS and Save the Children.

Commenting on the announcement, Nicky Paris, Director and Client Partner at ETS said: “Provide Community is a thriving organisation, leading the way in employee experience and business culture. Our work with the board and leadership teams has supported an ambitious business strategy and has helped to drive positive change. We are delighted to be jointly shortlisted in such a prestigious award.”

The ABP awards ceremony will take place on the 8th of November at the Leonardo Royal Hotel in London.
