OpenBlend – the platform for great conversations at work, has won the coveted title of ‘Best HR Software’ at this year’s UK Employee Experience Awards. The company’s latest award win follows a string of industry accolades over the past year, including ‘Best HR Supplier’ at the CIPD People Management Awards and ‘HR Tech Provider of the Year’ at the Personnel Today Awards.

The UK Employee Experience Awards – one of the UK’s most prestigious HR awards programmes – is judged by an independent panel of experts, and winners were announced at a formal ceremony in London last Thursday.

Throughout the 2022/23 HR awards season, OpenBlend’s customer-centric approach has received notable recognition from judges, with results delivered for Travelport – an innovative travel retail platform – forming the basis for the company’s win at the UK Employee Experience Awards.

Commenting on OpenBlend’s awards domination, the company’s Founder & CEO, Anna Rasmussen, said: “We can now say that we’ve won the three biggest HR tech awards in the UK – and in one awards season. That’s absolutely phenomenal to us as a team and we’re incredibly proud of what we’re helping our customers to achieve for the benefit of their people and their organisations.

“Rasmussen added: “We’re absolutely thrilled that the Travelport team chose OpenBlend to support its journey to a culture of coaching conversations. They are a prime example of a forward-thinking business that invests in its people as a priority.”

Echoing Rasmussen’s comments, Erin Watkins, VP Transformation People, Travelport, said: “OpenBlend has played a critical role in helping us to introduce coaching for performance as a staple of our culture. We’ve been able to shift performance to an ongoing conversation and connect wellbeing to high performance. [The partnership] has been an important part of our success in people terms, and we’re delighted to see them gain the deserved recognition.”

“Ultimately, these awards are representative of the steep upwards trajectory that OpenBlend is working towards as an innovator in our space – and the next year is going to be an incredibly exciting one,” concluded Rasmussen.
