The HR Champion Awards, which were held in the Guinness Storehouse on March 24th, 2017, celebrate the hard work and dedication of HR teams operating at the front line, delivering ambitious programmes and transforming business experience. This year’s competition saw entrants, both national and multinational, from a variety of sectors. The Best Change Management Programme Award was awarded to Musgrave MarketPlace for its people and behaviours strategy developed in its Ballymun branch.
Catherine Lambe, HR Director for Musgrave Wholesale Partners, accepted the award on behalf of the company. She commented, “Engaging all of our colleagues with our vision for the Food Emporium at the Ballymun store was critical to our success. The entire team worked hard to create a unique Food Emporium for our customers. We focused first on developing a team of experts to provide excellent service to customers and we have now developed a full calendar of events for customers to learn from leading foodservice experts that they can bring back and implement in their own businesses.”
The ICAD Awards were held in Dublin City Centre on May 11th, 2017 to celebrate the best creative advertising and design of 2016. Musgrave MarketPlace’s new fast food brand, Chipmongers, took home a silver award for Identity and Branding.

The design includes signage and wall graphics along with menus, printed materials, and a fresh website. Five Chipmongers stores have opened to date, with plans to open many more in Ireland in 2017.
