We are delighted to announce that the Spa at Rockliffe Hall has won ‘Employer of the Year’ at the Professional Beauty Awards where the best businesses and individuals in the beauty and spa industry are recognised.

Ashley Freeman, our Spa Director and the Spa Team represented Rockliffe Hall at the awards, which were held at a glittering black-tie event held in Grade II listed venue The Brewery, London, on Sunday 5th March. More than 700 leading beauty industry figures gathered in London to celebrate the finalists and winners.

In winning this award, the policies, practices and the way the business is run, in particular the Spa were acknowledged. The awards are judged by independent industry experts and every shortlisted salon, spa and clinic was interviewed by a member of the judging team. Therapists all attended a live final in London for a live trade test and interview with judges.

The Professional Beauty Awards are the longest running and best-attended awards in the industry and recognise outstanding customer service, treatment delivery and innovation.

Jason Adams, Managing Director at Rockliffe Hall says:

“I am deeply proud of everyone who put the hard work in to achieve this award, thanks go to Ashley and her team for delivering the process, structure, appraisals and job chats to all of her team consistently.”

“We must also give thanks to our HR Team for pushing through the policies to support the team to navigate the workplace. Policies such as wellbeing, menopause and bereavement were key contributors to winning the award”.

Ashley Freeman, Spa Director at Rockliffe Hall says:

"At Rockliffe Hall, we put our team at the heart of everything we do and our success is down to each and every person’s hard work and support. This award is a great reflection of the work we are doing behind the scenes on our employer brand, supporting recruitment and retention for the future.”

Introducing the awards on the evening, Eve Oxberry, editor of Professional Beauty magazine, said:

“These awards are all about raising standards in the beauty and wellness industry and celebrating the businesses and individuals that display outstanding professionalism and embody the luxury and care that are synonymous with spa and beauty.”

Congratulations to Ashley and the Spa Team!
