A Chichester College lecturer has been named one of the most influential HR professionals in the UK.
Guy Pink, an associate lecturer at the college, was among the top 10 ‘Movers and Shakers’, as listed by HR Magazine.
The magazine – one of the leading publications for the sector – describes the list as ‘designed to reflect the way senior HR practitioners exert influence’ and it recognises their work through consultancy as well as the way they share their expertise.
Guy, a portfolio careerist, teaches modules to students on the Post Graduate Diploma in HR Management and has more than 30 years’ experience, working for a mix of public and not-for-profit organisations.
Guy said: “It’s always an honour to be recognised by industry colleagues and, having taken a different career path, it is a bit of a surprise!
“To be listed among the most influential ‘movers and shakers’ is an acknowledgement that although I may no longer be a practitioner, I’m still making a difference in the sector.
“I’m in a privileged position to be able to share my experience, through consultancy, writing for publications and lecturing at the college.”
Guy was also nominated by his students for an inspirational teacher award at the college, demonstrating the difference he is making in the classroom.
Hilary Hele, Head of Learning for Business at Chichester College, said: “It’s important to us that our students can be assured they are being taught by industry experts. We are delighted to count one of HR Magazine’s most influential people among our lecturing staff.
“Guy is a valuable member of the team and is highly respected within the HR world – as this amazing accomplishment reflects.”
The HR Most Influential ranking is HR Magazine’s annual list of HR practitioners and academics who are driving forward the sector.
